And what a capital it is!

Cairo is one of a few capital cities that can claim they sit on a world-famous river. The Nile flows through this major destination, adding to the city’s picture-perfect surroundings. Cairo is full of historical attractions and fascinating monuments, and the medieval markets bring out the treasured culture of the locals. There are modern areas as well, including theatres and shopping malls. 

Cairo has a great range of hotels, from budget-friendly to the epitome of luxury. Stay right on the Nile at the five-star Kempinski Nile, Fairmont Cairo and Four Seasons, or save some pennies without losing much quality at the Pyramids View Inn or Hotel Longchamps.

The many islands of El Gouna

Experience a unique taste of Egypt’s coast at El Gouna, where interconnected islands deliver beauty, adventure and world-class accommodation. You can find relaxation at one of the many day spas and serene beach areas, or jump into the Red Sea for scuba diving and other water sports.

El Gouna’s tranquillity and exquisite nature make it perfect for honeymoons and romantic getaways. Feel the love at beachfront accommodation such as the Three Corners Ocean View, Sheraton Miramar, Dawar El Omada and the Club Paradiso. For a different holiday experience, stay at the Steigenberger Golf Resort or the Turtle’s Inn.

It’s not a mirage, it’s Siwa

The Western Desert is home to many barren landscapes, yet the town of Siwa has risen up through the sand to give visitors access to all the exotic attractions without making them forgo sumptuous lodging. Mineral springs, salt lakes, mysterious ruins and temples, historic pools and the limitless safari options all make your stay a memorable one.

The accommodation in Siwa reflects the desert paradise around it and places such as the Safari Gardens, Safari Paradise and the Shali Resort provide comfortable rooms and pleasurable amenities. The hotels vary in price, but most of them offer convenient access to tours and attractions at a reasonable cost.
