You can’t talk about Egypt without mentioning the Valley of the Kings, the Pyramids and the Nile, but there is far more to see in this incredible country. From the ancient St Katherine’s Monastery to the more recent Agricultural Museum, built in 1930, and the new Bibliotheca Alexandrina – an amazing start to recreating the tragically lost Library of Alexandria, including the only surviving scroll from the Library – Egypt can’t be captured adequately in words. It has to be experienced. With museums and antiquities galore, you could visit for a lifetime and still not have seen everything. While you could get lost in the temples and pyramids, Egypt has more to offer with the beautiful resort of Sharm El Sheikh and its amazing beaches, clear water and snorkelling and scuba diving to die for. A trip down the Nile is a must, with the opportunity to stop off at the waterside temples, visit Abu Simbel or even find the remains of Roman outposts in the desert.
