Fancy the usual sun, sea and sand but with a touch of culture and heritage?
 
Then Egypt is the perfect destination for you. A sensual, synthesis of culture and climate, Egypt holidays boast sandy white beaches and picturesque sunsets. Home to the Pyramids of Cairo, the great River Nile and some pretty impressive belly dancing, Egypt is one of the most unique and fascinating destinations in the world.
 
Egypt’s coastal resorts of Sharm El Sheikh and Hurghada are perfect for family holidays, offering something for those of all ages. Egypt is a transcontinental country which covers a large surface of our beautiful planet, which means you can enjoy all the luxuries of a usual summer holiday whilst also tackling that nagging desire to travel a lot more and visit all those far-away-sounding places with local tour guides. Sounding pretentious to your friends has never been so relaxing and enjoyable! So put your own personal stamp on Egypt and make it yours to enjoy.
 
 
Your own personal Egyptian holiday in the making
 
Egypt is for the adventurous and the curious at heart. The Great Pyramid at Giza is the only one of the seven wonders that is still standing today, other than Jedward’s hair.
If you want culture and a rich tapestry of knowledge and heritage, a holiday to Egypt has this. If you want family fun and beautiful lands for your children to experience, Egypt has this too, in abundance.
 
The unparalleled beaches of the Red Sea coast are perfect for those wishing to relax in the sun. Just when you were worried your relaxed state would be interrupted, these beaches offer a great selection of water sports in the clear warm sea to keep the kids from bringing you back from your temporary paradise. For the more adventurous traveller, a holiday to Sharm El Sheikh is great for diving with its wonderful coral reefs offering great deep reef exploration and colourful tropical fish.
 
Egypt is also home to an incredibly vibrant and energetic clubbing scene. For the more hedonistic traveller, Egypt will allow you to indulge in your night time delights. After the sun sets, the party continues and the fun only stops when you decide it’s time! A Sharm El Sheikh holiday offers a lively nightlife with great bars and a wide variety of restaurants.
Also with a re-energised club scene, it’s a great destination for younger groups looking for a memorable clubbing experience.
 
Take a simple step towards culture and sunshine today
 
An Egypt holiday is a great holiday all year round but perhaps the best time of year to visit Egypt is in the winter time as you can enjoy the warm days without feeling the midday heat of peak summer.
 
However if you want to stand the heat and enjoy the cultured sunshine, get out of the kitchen and onto a holiday to Egypt with lastminute.com. The journey starts here and this affordable and wonderful journey begins now with a single click. Seek out the difference and enjoy it today.
