Why travel to Egypt?

Egypt has many large tourist hotels that offer good opportunities for sunbathing and swimming. Diving and snorkelling are also very popular because of the beautiful coral reefs and colourful fish. You can also take different tours to experience the desert - on the back of a camel or by four-wheel drive vehicles.

There are opportunities for both short boat trips and longer cruises on the River Nile. Egypt is also a great destination for history buffs. The country is full of really old sights, such as pyramids, temples and royal tombs. Find inspiration and tips here:

    When my family and I were in Hurghada around '04, we met a nice Egyptian who had been with a Danish woman. Ramzes was his name. He drove us around a lot of nice places and got us into the Hilton at a heavily discounted price.

    Anyone know anything about him? Relatively chubby and curly hair. Spoke good Swedish.

    Thank you for your reply!
    With kind regards,
    Malin and family
