Egypt is not only Cairo and Luxor. Despite the fact that in the shadow of the majestic tombs of the pharaohs we can feel the breath of history on our own skin, holidays in Egypt have many more hidden gems that should be visited. If you are planning your holiday, make sure you look at the four beach resorts: Hurghada, Marsa Alam, Sharm el Sheik and Taba. Each of them offers a number of attractions depending on what you have dreamt about Egypt.
It is not without reason that we have chosen Hurghada as our headquarters. Once a fishing village and today the largest city on the Red Sea. It attracts tourists with its fabulous coral reefs, warm sea and beautiful sandy beaches. A great place for the whole family - from Hurghada you can get easily to every corner of Egypt, and after exhausting sightseeing trips, you will relax in the shade of palm trees.
Driving from Hurghada to the south along the Red Sea, you will come across Marsa Alam. In addition to tourists, the region is particularly popular for turtles. Devotees of the marine life will to this area like a fish to water. In addition to turtles, other exotic creatures like sea sirens, rays and shoals of exceptionally colourful fish are very popular in the vicinity of Marsa Alam. It is hard to find a better place in Egypt to enjoy the beautiful marine life.
On the shores of the picturesque Red Sea Riviera, also known as the Golden Bay, you will find Sharm el Sheikh. This is a place where you can relax, but you also have the opportunity to take part in an unforgettable party surrounded by multi-coloured coral reefs. From Sharm el Sheikh literally a stone's throw not only to Egyptian history, but also to Israel, Jordan, the monastery of St. Catherine or Mount Sinai.
Even closer to the eastern neighbours of the Egyptians you will find Taba. Due to the mountainous surroundings, this area is especially appreciated by walkers and photography enthusiasts. After an exhausting walk, a comfortable lounger will be waiting for you. Egypt in the summer hides a lot of various attractions that are just waiting for you to discover.More

If this is your first time in Egypt, you must see the riches of Tutankhamun's tomb and look into his mask. In Giza, you will find out how small we are when standing in the shadow of the Cheops Pyramid. It is not without reason that it is called the Great Pyramid.
If you want to absorb the real history and the views of the ruins of ancient architecture, Luxor should be on your list. During the two-day tour of the City of Palaces, you will be able to visit most of the monuments in the largest open-air museum in the world. You will go through the Valley of the Kings and see the temples of the Karnak complex. You can also admire the 400 km², on which Luxor is located from the luxury of a hot air balloon.
Understand the medieval times during a trip to the monasteries of St. Antoni and Saint. Paul, just over 2 hours away from Hurghada. You will discover multi-coloured frescos and you will get to know the everyday life of Coptic monks.
However, Egypt is not just walking in the shadow of the ancient buildings from thousands of years ago. It is also the sun, which is written throughout the whole year. Make the most of it by cruising along the Sinai Peninsula, diving with dolphins or snorkelling in the vicinity of turtles. You may also be able to see the sea siren!
Or do you prefer the desert? Go on a quad bike to the Bedouin village. Who knows, maybe the Bedouins will let you ride one of their camels? From locations around the Sinai Peninsula like Sharm el Sheikh or Taba, you will join us on a further journey, not only in Egypt, but also to Jordan, Jerusalem, Bethlehem and the Dead Sea.More
The first thing you should think about when packing your suitcase for a holiday in Egypt are the temperatures. Try to choose clothes to protect you from the sun. You should make suite that you have many 100% items as synthetic materials make you sweat. Cover your head with a cap or wide-brimmed hat, and your eyes with sunglasses. In order not to burn your feet from the hot sand, get your shoes with a thicker soles. You must make sure that you pack enough sunscreen - the bigger the better. Font forget your swimsuit so that you will not miss any opportunities to go to the beach. Evenings in the desert can be cooler, so do not forget about warmer clothes. It is always good to always have a small first aid kit containing painkillers and plasters with you for any cuts or blisters from walking around the sights.

When in Egypt, it's worth sampling the Egyptian coffee (ahwa mazbuta). It is brewed differently than in Europe, in a pan, usually with a little cardamom added. The Egyptians also have a wide selection of sweet delicacies like halvah, basbousa, kunafa, or dates with cakes and jams. You should also visit the market to look for exotic spices like saffron. The price of saffron in Egypt are much lower than in other countries. If you prefer items that can last longer, purchase a shawl. On cool, autumn days it will warm you up and remind you of your trip to Egypt.
A must for every trip to Egypt is a visit to the capital of the country, Cairo. You can travel to the foot of the pyramids in Giza and then south to the ruins of the temples in Luxor. Modern Egypt also has many attractions in its beach resorts along the Red Sea. You can spend time diving amongst the coral reefs, or by going on a quad safari, but also by relaxing on cruises and on the white sandy beach.
Tourists mostly return from the land of the Pharaohs with a papyrus. Among the handicrafts on offer there are also figurines (eg. pyramids, Great Sphinx, Nefertiti or the gods), gold and silver jewellery, scarves, lamps made of brass or metal, as well as decorative bottles filled with sand in fancy colours. Also, souvenirs from your holidays in Egypt can be, real African coffee, spices, sweets and dried fruits and these are very often bought as gifts. An equally good idea is also Arabic perfume made from perfumed oil or water pipe tobacco.
