Egypt travel guide, travel information, tips and advice

If you travel to Egypt you will have a wonderful chance to see the ancient Egyptian monuments that stand witness to a great civilization, cruise the Nile or enjoy scuba diving in the red sea one of the wonders of nature.

If you haven't done it then it's time to spend your holiday in Egypt where you will have many things to do. Flying to Egypt is the best way to enjoy your journey to Egypt allowing you to see all tourist attractions in all Egyptian cities, the Pyramids in Cairo, Greco-Roman monuments in Alexandria, Abu Simbel temples in Aswan and the Karnak temple in Luxor.

You can enjoy a trip to Egypt all year long. During the whole year you can find a place in Egypt where it's moderate, sunny, warm or cool. You can enjoy swimming in summer in the Mediterranean or  in winter in the red sea, that's your choice because while Alexandria is best visited in summer, the best time to go to Sharm El Sheikh or Hurgada will be in winter. Cairo on the other hand is beautiful all year long.

In Cairo you can enjoy a little chat with Egyptians sitting at a Cafe in Khan El Khalili smoking shisha and drinking mint tea and afterwards you can have a walk through little shops in the Khan and buy many souvenirs of papyrus, statues, silver. 

Have you ever visited Aswan ? why not take a Nile cruise from Cairo to Aswan passing through Luxor, the jewel of the Nile and visit Temple of Abu Simbel to see the great statues of Ramses II ancient Egyptians have built.

Whatever you like, you will find in Egypt. Desert, sea, spiritual experience, entertainment, sports and above all friendly people who will welcome you in any place you visit.
