For thousands of years, Egypt has been one of the world’s most fascinating travel destinations with its ancient history, ruins of majestic temples and pyramids, frenetic bazaars and the tranquillity of the River Nile. More recently, the allure of The United Arab Emirates has drawn visitors to Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Explore energetic Cairo with its colourful Khan el Khalili Souk, largely unchanged since the 14th century, where you can find exotic spices, perfumes and precious metals. View the awe-inspiring pyramids of Gisa and the Sphinx, then be enchanted by the incredible open-air museum of Luxor and relax on a cruise along the Nile River, admiring the landmark temples and sights. A trip to Egypt would not be complete without swimming in the Red Sea and diving at spectacular Sharm El-Sheikh.
For a complete contrast, visit the vibrant coastal cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi on the Arabian Gulf. Both boast spectacular beaches, memorable desert tours on camel back and great duty free shopping. Traditionalists will enjoy Abu Dhabi with its slightly quieter ambience and the beautiful tree lined Corniche, the Abu Dhabi Heritage Village to see how locals lived before all the oil wealth and Hili Fun City for its incredible theme park. Others may prefer the more westernised, cosmopolitan city of Dubai with its exciting nightlife and party culture, feast of entertainment, theme parks and famous Spice and Gold souks.
