Ancient civilization of Egypt is amazing. You can always feel its mystery and mysticism when visiting Egyptian temples or the Tombs of Pharaohs. Though this civilization is over 4 thousand years, most temples are still in good state.
Alas, in the 19th century most beautiful and valuable things were taken away from Egypt, and are now stored in European museums. And just imagine what would be Egyptian temples if everything was intact. Egyptian pyramids are the only World`s Wonder which has survived until our time.
Traditionally, most people consider Egypt as popular seaside resort where one can spend a good time on some beach in autumn, winter or spring. As in summer it is too hot there. Winter is also isn’t the best time for bathing, though it is quite possible if there weather isn’t windy. Perfect time for visiting Egypt is spring or autumn. Egyptian resorts are also very convenient because they are easily accessible almost from any point of the world. Thus, it takes about 3-4 hours to get there from Europe.
There are well-known resorts, such as Sharm-el-Sheikh and Hurghada. These resorts are relatively similar, though some tourists believe that Sharm-el-Sheikh is more luxurious.
Also, new resorts are being actively developed, such as Dahab, Nuweiba and Taba on Sinai Peninsula, and Safaga, Marsa Alam, El-Gouna on the continental part of Egypt. And indeed, you can have a good and fairly inexpensive holiday there. Recently there have been built many hotels. It has an excellent entertainment infrastructure and warm, quiet sea for a full year.
Also, there are opportunities of adventure holiday. There are many dive spots, such as Ras Mohamed National Park, which is considered most interesting of them. Red Sea underwater world is very rich and various. Dahab has excellent conditions for wind surfing.
However, apart from beaches, Egypt is undoubtedly most interesting for its tours. Probably, its historical sites are only comparable with those of Italy and Israel.
