What to do in Egypt
Watersports: Swim with dolphins, scuba dive down into some of the world's best wrecks, snorkel over colourful reefs, surf Egypt's waves, windsurf in the trade winds or go wild in the water parks.
Land and overland adventures: Safari into the desert on a camel, canter along the coastline on horseback, race over the dunes on a quad bike, enjoy a round of golf or take to the skies in a hot air balloon.
Beach life: Work on your tan on the golden sands of the Red Sea coast, cool off in crystal clear waters and sip iced fruit cocktails at beachside bars.
Nightlife: Wander off the beach into world famous nightclubs such as The Ministry of Sound Beach Club and Hed Kandi Beach Bar in Hurghada. Discover Cairo's live music scene, check out the hotel discos in Sharm el Sheikh, try the traditional belly dancing show, or try your luck in the casinos.
History: Walk through the Valley of the Kings, see the Colossi of Memnon and the mighty Temple of Luxor, stand in awe at the Abu Simbel temples near Aswan, visit the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities, the Sphinx and the Pyramids of Giza in Cairo - and that's just for starters!
Culture: Watch the Pyramids Sound and Light Show in Cairo, dine with locals in traditional villages, enjoy cultural performances and Bedouin dinner shows, go bargain hunting in the city souks like world famous Khan el Khalili bazaar, or charter a Felucca (a traditional boat) in Aswan and float down the Nile.
