Egypt is back in fashion and there’s never been a better time to be trendy!

The destination disappeared from the travel radar for a few years, thanks to the political unrest that began in 2011 with a revolution removing dictatorial leader Hosni Mubarak from office, but stability has returned and the welcome mat is out.

Travellers are returning to Egypt, but the load is still light which guarantees those folks calling into the country the luxury of space to explore without the crowds that once plagued the most famous sightseeing spots.

 

2. PRICES ARE STILL LOW

Egypt is emerging from a tourism time warp, which means prices haven’t climbed much since 2010, so you can enjoy luxury for less or stretch their holiday budget to spend more time away from home. Winning!

Sun Island Tours has been helping Aussies explore Egypt for 30 years with general manager John Polyviou noting three locations – Cairo, Luxor and Aswan – should be on every itinerary because they are home to tourism superstars. Check out what he has to say about this amazing destination…

 “There are the pyramids and Sphinx in Cairo, the East Bank and West Bank in Luxor, and the Philae Temple in Aswan, with most clients also including a Nile cruise,’’ the Egypt expert explains.

“But there’s a lot more to be done in these destinations and in Cairo there’s the chance to have a home-hosted meal where travellers meet a real family and learn how they live while tasting homemade dishes.

“Sharm El Sheikh is a destination a bit off the beaten track, where you can enjoy beautiful coastal resorts with five-star facilities, and this spot on the Red Sea is a place to relax and explore marine life by snorkelling or diving.

“From there you can visit St Catherine’s Monastery at the base of Mt Sinai – where Moses received the 10 Commandments – and climb the mountain at night to see the sunrise”

 

So have you started packing yet? With unbeatable prices for unforgettable experiences you just can’t pass up this awesome opportunity to visit Egypt.
