Red Sea Holidays
In spite of the political events of Spring 2011, Egypt remains an incredibly popular tourist destination. It is best known for its ancient monuments and treasures which many people explore places such as the Valley of the Kings as part of a Nile Cruise.
The growing number of beach resorts are also popular with the largest being Sharm el Sheikh at the southern end of the Sinai. There is a range of accommodation to suit everyone and the resort boasts some of the best nightlife and scuba diving.
Egypt is also developing as a golfing destination with more and more PGA Championship courses being built. The resort of Taba Heights is one of the best places to play with some of the lowest fees coupled with some of the most spectacular views from the fairways.
It is also a fantastic scuba diving destination with dive sites to cater for everything including shallow, colourful reefs for photographs, the ship wrecks at Abu Nuhas or the spectacular southern Red Sea.
When to visit
Egypt is a great place to visit all year round. The coolest month is February but daily temperatures still average above 20 celcius.
Temperatures in Upper Egypt (Luxor / Aswan) often go above 40 celcius in the summer so for visiting the sights of Ancient Egypt, it may be batter to visit in the winter.
The beach resorts are great all year round as is the snorkelling and scuba diving.
