Holidays in Egypt

Egypt is rich with temples: soaring lotus-bud columns, enormous stone portals laced with delicate carvings, elaborate underground tombs, windswept desert monasteries, and richly decorated mosques. But as extraordinary as these sights are, they will probably not be the things that linger in your memory after you return home. It is the rhythm of life in Egypt–-from the Mediterranean feel of Alexandria to the electric pace of Cairo to the timelessness of desert villages–-that is unforgettable. In a world that seems to get smaller and more homogeneous by the day, Egypt, outside a few pockets, is still a place that exists for its residents, not its visitors. It is the real thing. As a visitor you will have to learn how to accommodate Egypt and not hope that Egypt, with 5,000 years of momentum behind it, will accommodate you.

The mysterious land of the Pharaohs offers much more than just ancient history. Although famed for the Pyramids and the Great Sphinx, Egypt is also blessed with natural landmarks like Mount Sinai and its iconic deserts.

While bustling cities like Cairo bridge the past and the future, Nile cruises provide the opportunity to see one of the world's great rivers. And with its summers proving famously hot, just make sure you stock up on your suntan lotion.
