Egypt a spring destination for culture and fun
Though political troubles in 2011 caused many British holidaymakers to give Egypt a wide berth, the country is back on the destination menu in 2012. With a huge variety of options for travellers to indulge in, holidays can be cultural, fun or both.
If visitors are looking for beaches and diving, then Sharm el Sheikh is the ideal place to head to. The area has many resorts catering to tourists, offering all the necessities of modern day travel with pools, snorkelling, restaurants and nightlife. Meanwhile, a little further up the coast, Dahab is also a great diving spot with a more rustic appeal.
For those wanting culture, Luxor and Cairo should be top of the destination list. Only a short flight from the UK, Luxor offers the chance to cruise the Nile, spot pyramids and explore the beautiful lands of Egypt. Meanwhile, Cairo too offers the lure of pyramids and museums, with the addition of bustling souks to barter and haggle for spices, foods and gifts.
Egypt is a top destination this spring for British individuals wanting to get to explore one of the world's most iconic cultures. Whilst foreign office advice should be sought before booking trips, the country remains a hugely popular place for tourism
