POCKET GUIDE TO EGYPT
While conjuring up visions of other-worldly pyramids and long stretches of desert, Cairo is also a bustling metropolis of buzzing souks and chaotic lanes paired with cosmopolitan streets and ultra-luxurious hotels. The sandstone city is set against the banks of the Nile and just a short distance from the Great Pyramids of Giza, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and the Sphinx, one of the greatest sculptures known to man.
Flowing through eleven countries, the Nile River is Africa’s longest and its banks are dotted with ancient Egyptian treasures, making it the perfect path for a discovery of the Land of the Pharaohs. Experience it aboard a luxury cruise to visit the wonders of the shoreline and stop at ancient temples where Greek inscriptions and Coptic crosses engrave the walls, including the Great Temple of Abu Simbel and the Valley of the Kings.
The mighty Pyramids of Giza, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, are a must for any world-traveller and an absolute essential on a luxury Egypt holiday. Constructed some 4,500 years ago, the structures were built as temples for the Egyptian Pharaohs who assumed they would be become gods in the afterlife. A single pyramid was constructed using 2.3 million blocks, each of which weighed two and a half tonnes, an unimaginable feat and an awe-inspiring sight to behold.
After your cultural discovery of ancient Egypt, experience some well-deserved beachside relaxation. Choose from a selection of luxury seaside resorts positioned along the Red Sea. Spend time touring Egypt’s fascinating landmarks before settling into a sun lounger on a private beach or around a resort pool. Teeming with diverse marine life and verdant coral reefs, the Red Sea offers a variety of marine activities including boat cruises and scuba diving.
