Things To Do On Holiday In Egypt

Apr 26, 2008
Egypt is one of the most popular family holiday destinations for families staying in holiday villas and self catering apartments. It is one of the most visited countries in the world. Of course Egypt is famous for one thing in particular and that is the pyramids.

Egypt is famous around the world because of the Pyramids and thousands of tourists come to Egypt each year especially to see these. It is highly recommended you take a trip to see these while holidaying in Egypt. Many tourists chose to stay in a holiday villa or holiday apartment in an area close by. Depending on which resort you are staying in the transfer time to the pyramids varies quite considerably. Once there, you can even do a guided tour inside the pyramids, an experience you're sure never to forget.

Sun-worshippers flock to Egypt year after year, with its year round warm climate it is the perfect sun holiday destination. It's not uncommon in the summer months to have temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius, although existing northern winds take the edge off the heat so it's not uncomfortable. Egypt is home to some stunning beautiful white sandy beaches and warm clear waters.

The main tourist resorts in Egypt are El Gouna, Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh-while here you can stay in one of the many luxury holiday villas with swimming pools or luxury holiday apartments, all are available for rent direct from the holiday home owners.

As well as the pyramids, Cairo is also right on the banks of the River Nile, another major tourist attraction in Egypt. It is one of Egypt's largest cities. The Nile is one of the longest and most fierce rivers in the world. Adventure enthusiasts can go out onto the Nile and challenge it to some rafting, or maybe you'd prefer to just take a relaxing dip while trying to escape the blazing heat. Egypt is becoming more popular with families coming on vacation here and staying in a self catering apartment or a villa with a swimming pool.

Other activities that are popular amongst tourists in Egypt are diving, horse riding, go-kart racing, sightseeing and of course the Safaris. Safaris in Egypt are not just sitting on a bus driving around all day, you can hire a jeep, ride on a camel or motorbike. Some Safaris also include trips by foot. Tourists looking to experience the quiet and natural life of the desert will be amazed.

Another place worth visiting in Cairo would be to Khan El-Khalil. It is filled with ancient shops, factories and workshops. This town has been famous for shopping for many many years and is a popular tourist attraction and one that should be experienced. Why not try your hand at haggling, if you don't want to overpay for merchandise you must master the art of haggling, it is not uncommon to get the price down by as much as 50-60% of the original price. You can stay in one of the many rented holiday apartments or villas and use this as a base to experience the local life and culture.

Egypt is said to be home to some of the best holiday homes in the world. Whether it's a holiday cottage, self catering apartment or a luxury villa with swimming pool you're looking for, all are available to rent direct from the home owners.
