Egypt has been attracting visitors since it began over 5000 years ago. Maybe that’s because Egyptians are known for their friendly hospitality and are happy to share their country with travelers.

See the pyramids in Giza, trek to a remote desert oasis, cruise the River Nile to visit the country’s iconic temples, shop a bustling souk in chaotic Cairo, scuba dive the Red Sea reefs, or relax on a sandy beach in Sharm El Sheikh. You’ll soon understand why ancient Egypt’s towering pyramids and mysterious mummies are only part of the draw.
