7 Reasons Why Now is the Time to Visit Egypt
A land of ancient monuments, mysterious legends and a charisma that never fails to excite visitors, Egypt is one destination not to be missed off your bucketlist.
Here’s our 7 reasons why now is the perfect time to visit Egypt:
Egypt enjoys the sun year-round, but it’s from September onwards that the stifling heat of summer begins to give way to more comfortable temperatures. With the sun still shining and just 1-5mm of rain per month, visitors to Egypt can pretty much guarantee blue skies and perfect sailing conditions.
Or should we say lack thereof… Visitors to Egypt can currently enjoy all of the major landmarks almost completely free of tourists. In fact, some previously restricted archaeological areas have been opened to sightseers in the hope of heightening their appeal.
The Little Things
With less visitors filling the streets and waterways of Egypt, guests are free to experience local life in far more intimate detail. From fishermen practicing their trade, to market traders selling their exotic goods, there is a lot to see and even more to learn.
Egyptians are well-known for their first-class hospitality, but today visitors are greeted with praise and thanks like never before. Expect to be treated like a pop star wherever you go and to leave with a new-found love of warmth and character of modern Egypt.
The Tourist Sites are Secure
The Egyptian government has taken steps to up security around tourism hotspots in recent months. This means that there is a reassuring security presence at Luxor, Aswan and other areas of interest, alleviating any fears travellers may have.
The Help for the Economy
Egypt’s economy has long been built on the success of their once thriving tourist industry. Those daring enough to travel to the country are doing their bit to help reduce unemployment and give life to local businesses.
With the news at EgyptAir have resumed flights to Luxor from Heathrow, Egypt is once again becoming an accessible holiday destination for visitors via the UK.
Our Nile River cruises offer the chance to explore Egypt’s ancient past in the utmost luxury. Cruising between Aswan and Luxor, guests will visit all the major sites including the Valleys of the Kings and Queens, the Temple of Karnak and the Island of Agilika.
