Discovering a new country is always exciting – and when that country happens to be one with an extraordinary history, filled with millennia-old tombs and temples, sand dusted pyramids, and perfectly-carved hieroglyphics and vivid artworks, there’s all the more reason to add it to your bucket-list! Located on the eastern side of North Africa, its lifeblood the mighty Nile River, Egypt is one of the oldest tourist destinations on the planet and its marvels are endless.
But whilst the ancient architecture is guaranteed to bring out the student in most of us, Egypt certainly isn’t a one-trick pony. Dig deeper past the Saharan sands and gigantic pyramids, and you’ll find fertile valleys, luscious oases, and islands shaded by date palms, ripe for exploration – and if none of that suits, take to the water for a cruise down the Nile and enjoy the sights and sounds in pure luxury.
