Egypt is a fascinating country, and the perfect destination for those seeking adventure. Over 96% of Egypt is officially classed as desert, but there’s still plenty to explore. From the mighty River Nile to the Pyramids of Giza and the souks and mosques of Cairo, Egypt’s a country that’s full of character and colour.
During your visit to Egypt, you can see the tomb of Tutankhamun in the Valley of the Kings, or take a Nile boat and visit the waterside temples. But trips to Egypt aren’t all about ancient history; the coastline’s packed with footprint-free beaches and vibrant coral reefs. So whether you’re searching for grand souks, ornate mosques, vast dunes, ancient fortresses or idyllic beaches, there’s plenty to explore.
Plus, the friendly locals will make you feel right at home. Many are followers of Islam and speak Arabic, but some locals speak English too. Egypt’s currency is the Egyptian pound, and the country has a reputation for being inexpensive and good value – just remember to take your bartering cap when you enter the bazaars and souks.
Whether you’ll be relaxing at the beach or discovering ancient civilisations, it's important that you get travel insurance for Egypt to help protect yourself against any unforeseen eventualities.
