Egypt is truly iconic, bringing to mind the Nile, the pyramids, the sphinx and the minarets.
But this country is a cultural behemoth that offers so much more than half a dozen ancient clichés. It also boasts a number of impressive resorts on the Red Sea. Found at the very north of Africa, just south of Turkey and east of Israel and Saudi Arabia.
Egypt is the home of one of the world’s great ancient civilisations and there is a great cultural pride that comes with that.
