Best places to visit in Egypt

  • Luxor: An archaeologist's dream, Luxor offers a comprehensive glimpse into Egypt’s ancient past. Visit the Karnak Temple Complex, thought to be one of the biggest religious buildings in the world or take a trip to Medinet Habu, an ornately decorated temple on the west bank. From here you can also visit Valley of the Kings or take a hot air balloon ride over the city and its sights. 
  • Sharm-El-Sheikh: this resort town on the Red Sea Coast is popular with visitors because of its clear azure sea, white sands and beautiful coral reefs. For those who want to explore the world under the sea, whether through snorkeling or deep-sea diving this is the place to be. Dive sites allow you to explore both the diversity of marine life and some of the wrecks nestled on the sea bed.  
  • Aswan: After the frantic activity and energy in the bigger cities, treat yourself to some relaxation time in Aswan. Set on the meandering River Nile, this town has options to help you wind down. Take a sunset felucca trip around the islands off Aswan or hop on a camel to go and visit the Monastery of St Simeon or take a ferry over to Elephantine Island to see the ancient Nubian villages. 

Summer 2022 in Egypt

Summer in Egypt is slightly less popular for tourists due to the high temperatures but there are still benefits to visiting in summer. With the long summer days there’ll be plenty of beach time available, so hire a car and drive to Hurghada to go skin diving in the Red Sea. Alternatively take a day trip to Alexandria which is cooler than other cities and escape the heat in the Alexandria National Museum or the Abu al-Abbas al-Mursi Mosque which dates back to 1775.
