Egypt conjures up images of River Nile, Sphinx, Pharaohs, Mummies, Pyramids, Sands, Camels and of course Cleopatra. It is all this and a lot more....
Modern Egypt is one of the most populated countries in the middle east. Most of the population is concentrated along the river Nile which include Cairo and Alexandria. Egypt is a popular tourist destination and more than ten million visitors visit Egypt annually.
Despite Egypt's ancient allure, today the country probably attracts more beach vacationers than any other type of tourists. This is because, many European countries lack warm beaches and the warm Egyptian beaches are both inexpensive and well appointed.
Hurghada and Sharm el-Sheik, on the Red Sea coast, are doors to a magical underwater world of technicolour fish and coral that draws divers from around the world, while other adventurous travellers head inland. Here, you can discover monasteries amid the arid mountains of Sinai or the distant desert oases, home to the hardy nomads whose camel trains still wander the Saharan sands.
