When planning your winter holiday, some of the best spots on Earth are found in the desert. Temperate climate and endless sunshine await for travellers destined for adventure in the sand. And one of the best winter breaks for all-inclusive deals and special winter price breaks is in Egypt.
Planning an Egyptian holiday is a year round event, but most will find the winter months preferable to escape the blistering heat. Most Egyptian tours commence in Cairo for a two or three night stay. Must see sights featured on every tour include the pyramids, sphinx and a half day excursion to the famed Egyptian Museum, laden with treasures dating back the first dynasty.
From Cairo, your next stop is Aswan or Luxor to board your all-inclusive Nile cruise. Choose from four to seven nights floating by timeless wonders and archaeological sights with all your ship board meals and entertainment included. Shore excursions to visit Valley Of The Kings, Queens, the Unfinished Obelisk and various minor stops in Kom Ombo and Edfu are part of the cruise plan and come complete with tour guide.
When the cruise is over, you are by no means finished in Egypt. Some of the world's most beautiful beaches lie on the banks of the Red Sea with first class and deluxe accommodation found in Hurghada and Sharm el-Sheikh. To maximize your rest and relaxation, plan to stay at least four nights in your desert oasis by the sea. Activities are endless with options for scuba diving, snorkeling, horse and camel riding, glass bottom boats, folk music, parasailing and all traditional sports. And thrill seekers will love a trek through the scenic desert on a quad bike that runs a trail from the mountains to the sea.
Booking a holiday for the winter months in Egypt is an extremely popular tourism choice, so be sure to get your reservations in early. Egypt travelers come back and again and again to soak up the sun and local culture. The Egyptian people are famous for their warm smiles and genuine hospitality making the land of the pharaohs a place you will want to return to the rest of your life.
In addition to the rich antiquity and historical value to Egypt, it also is one of the best monetary values for a deluxe class holiday on a shoestring budget. Hotels and meals are reasonably priced and mostly quoted in Egyptian pounds. The UK has the favorable exchange rate to the Egyptian Pound, making your hard earned money stretch even further.
