Cairo has many attractions, but that also makes it pretty hectic. For relaxing beach holidays in Egypt, you'd be better off staying further away. The resort towns of Marsa Alam and Hurghada are both excellent choices. 

In Egypt, there are lots of different things to do depending on which area you choose. It’s probably best to decide where you’ll visit and plan everything in advance, or book an All Inclusive holiday deal with Airtours and let us do all the planning for you. 

There’s a range of Nile cruise options to choose from, and they’ll all give you an unforgettable experience in slightly different ways. The most romantic way to travel is to take a Felucca, an old low set wooden boat with lateen sails.

Of course, the first thing anybody will ask you about your visit to Egypt is whether you saw the pyramids, and they'll be eagerly anticipating your response. Don't disappoint them, or yourself for that matter. There are plenty of tour packages that’ll take you to Giza to see the pyramids for yourself.

If you love diving, Egypt is perfect for you. The waters of the Red Sea are teeming with life and the water visibility is excellent. You’ll see all kinds of exotic and colourful fish, and you may even get the chance to explore a wreck or two.

Egypt is best for

All Inclusive: If you prefer an experience where everything is planned in advance and taken care of for you, Egypt is ideal because there’s no shortage of All Inclusive holidays available.  

Divers: Egypt is great if you’re a diving fanatic, as it's situated between the Mediterranean and the Red Sea, both perfect for underwater exploring.

History Buffs: Pyramids, kings, mummies and treasure... We've all seen movies like Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Mummy, so we know what's in store. But, as impressive as it all looks in a movie, seeing it up close and personal is a jaw-dropping experience.


Fast facts

Language: The official language of Egypt is Standard Arabic, and unofficially it is Egyptian Arabic. Plenty of people can speak English and French, and some can speak German. Learning Arabic will definitely help a lot, but it's not essential. 

Currency: Egypt uses the Egyptian Pound (EGP) as its currency. 

Local Time: Egypt is in the EET zone, 2 hours ahead of GMT/UK time.

Fly To: Cairo International Airport (CAI) is the largest airport in Egypt. The popular beach resorts are served by Hurghada International and Marsa Alam International. 

Flight Time From UK: Flights from the UK to Egypt take 5-6 hours on average. 

Tourist Information: More information about visiting Egypt can be obtained here.

Visas & Health: Technically all UK passport holders can apply for a Visa On Arrival, but it’s better to apply in advance for a visa in order to make sure you won’t be denied entry. Vaccinations aren’t essential for visiting Egypt.


Weather and climate

Temperature: Egypt has extremely hot weather during the summer, which lasts from March to October. It’s made worse when the khamsin wind blows across the desert, creating a sandstorm and raising the temperature up to well over 40°C. 

Best time to visit Egypt: Because of the sandy winds, you’d be best off visiting between November and February, when the weather won’t be as extreme.


Getting Around

By Train: Trains in Egypt are pretty good, but they don't run throughout the entire country.  They are slower than buses but more comfortable.  

By Bus: Intercity travel by bus is faster and much cheaper than by train. It's best to book your ticket the day before you need it.

By Service Taxi: These are collective taxis that take you on fixed routes, just like songtaos in Thailand or the minibus services in Sumatra. They're pretty cheap but best for when you’re only going very short distances.

By Ordinary Taxi: Well, ordinary is a very flexible term in Egypt, but this is quite simply a taxi that takes you anywhere you ask to go. The main difference between this and a normal cab you’d get in London is that your driver will stop for anyone who waves him down even before you arrive at your destination.

By Hire Car: Renting a car for long trips aren’t recommended if you’re going to Egypt.  It's usually better to let somebody who knows the local roads well do the driving. 

By Boat: Well, look, it's home of the Nile. What else are you going to do but cruise down in style?
