If you are struggling on where to plan your next vacation, it could be worth looking into travelling overseas and visiting Egypt. Here are just six reasons why you should vacation in Egypt.
Value for Money
One of the main reasons so many tourists are interested in Egypt Tours every year is thanks to the value for money those tours offers. No matter where you plan to visit in the country, you are sure to find street markets and tourist towns that are filled to the brim with bargains. Make sure that you look out for bazaars where you can haggle for money off souvenirs.
There are many famous attractions and ‘must-see’ sites scattered across Egypt, such as the Pyramids of Giza, which allow tourists to enter deep inside the tomb every day. The amount of tickets available for the pyramids is usually limited and they tend to sell out fast, so it is important that you act fast. As there are limited tickets available, this means that you will not have to put up with a large crowd of tourists getting in your way when taking pictures.
Many tourists visit Egypt because of the friendly locals who are happy to have tourists visiting from all four corners of the globe. If you are new to traveling or become lost, there is always a friendly local nearby who will be able to point you in the right direction and help answer any questions that you may have. However, be warned that some locals may have other intentions and try and get you to sign up for excursions with a hefty price tag. Ensure that you stay alert and aware to eliminate the risk of being scammed.
Whilst some travelers prefer to go it alone and explore Egypt at their own pace and leisure, there are others who prefer a helping hand to take them across the country. You may be interested in Egypt tours that offer a variety of packages and travel offers to help you get the most out of your trip. These include Nile cruises, diving holidays, city tours, as well as adventures in the desert. Make sure that you research into what type of package is best for you to ensure you make the right decision.
Another great reason to select Egypt as your next point of call is thanks to the great weather all year round. If you are planning to go diving or take a dip in the sea, it is best to visit the country in the summer. However, if you want to explore historic sites, it is best to visit during the winter months, as many of them are situated in desert areas. Before booking your trip to Egypt, it is best to check the weather forecast first. In the summer months, temperatures can soar into the sweltering numbers so you will need to work out what type of weather you can tolerate to ensure your trip goes as smoothly as possible. Also, the weather will play a major part in the types of activities you want to visit. For example, visiting the pyramids in high humidity can take its toll so always make sure to plan and be realistic with what you can tolerate.
History and Culture
When we think of Egypt, the first thing that usually pops into our head is the pyramids. However, there are plenty of historic landmarks that are dotted across Egypt. From the Valley of the Kings to the Abu Simbel Temples, Egypt has it all if you are looking for a country filled with rich history and culture. There are plenty of excursions that you can go on to help enrich your experience of Egypt so make sure that you research before you go as some excursions are incredibly popular with tourists, resulting in tickets selling fast.
To get the best deals and save as much money as possible, make sure that you book well in advance. The quicker you book, the more chance you have of securing exclusive deals and promotional offers that can see you save a fortune on your trip to Egypt.
