Getaways to Egypt serve up some of the best diving spots in the world, plus dozens of white-sand beaches and over 7,000 thousand years of history. The impressive country, set between northeast Africa and the Middle East, dates back to the time of the Pharaohs, so it's no wonder it's packed with history and culture. We're talking millennia-old monuments, including Giza's colossal Pyramids and Great Sphinx as well as Luxor's hieroglyph-lined Karnak Temple and Valley of the Kings tombs. Plus, Egypt's Red Sea is home to over 1,200 species of tropical fish, plus, spooky shipwrecks and colourful corals. Temperatures also soar above 35 degrees in the summer, and rarely dip below 20 degrees in the winter, so you can visit any time.
