Egypt is a spectacular destination of temples and tombs that amazes all who visit. It’s not all historic treasures though.
With immense tracts of desert, superb scuba diving, and the famed Nile River there’s something for everyone here.
Beach lovers head to the Sinai to soak up the sun, while archaeology enthusiasts will have a field day in Luxor.
The desert has white, chalk-like mountains that look like a snow-covered wonderland in the middle of the parched sand. The sand mountains look like eruptions out of a science fiction movie with pinnacles resembling icebergs and with few white boulders. Anyone who’s had their fill of temples and tombs will enjoy this magnificent natural scenery.
Egypt’s center for beach fun is the South Sinai province on the Sinai Peninsula. Sharm el-Sheikh is a European-style resort full of premium hotels, cosmopolitan restaurants, and bags of entertainment opportunities.

South Sinai is all about diving no matter whatever place you choose to stay. The Red Sea one of the top diving destinations of the world in South Sinai region has a cluster of some of the best diving sites.
A low budget traveller hub, Dahab is as much about desert adventures and excursions as the sea.
Located some 85 km to the north of Sharm el-Sheikh along the Gulf of Aqaba, near the southern tip of Sinai, Dahab is a site not to be missed on your trip list. Once an isolated coastal village, Dahab advanced itself into a hippie hangout capital in the 1980’s and became an alternative resort town with mixed and cheap accommodation and a laid-back lifestyle. Watersport activities like windsurfing, scuba diving, snorkelling, and camel and jeep trips make it one of the most sought destinations along the Red Sea.

The Red Sea, off the Egyptian coast, is one of the most happening places in the world to go diving.
