Holidays To Egypt

As soon as you hear the name, you immediately think of mystery, intrigue and an ancient land full of secrets. 

Admit it, you fancy a bit of an Indiana Jones-style Egyptian adventure. Egypt holiday packages allow you to explore as much of this legendary country as you can, without getting into the types of pickles Indy faced. Immerse yourself in a place that has a rich history and culture—plus have a little fun while you're at it.

Things to Do in Egypt

Taking an Egypt holiday without seeing the pyramids is like walking through the Sahara Desert with no water: really, really silly! Giza is about 14 km from Cairo, and it's where you'll find the whole gang: the mysterious Sphinx and the three Giza pyramids, including the Great Pyramid, which is the oldest Seventh Wonder of the Ancient World. You'll actually be able to go inside one of the pyramids (provided you're not claustrophobic and prone to running for your “mummy”) and you can explore the entire ancient site at your leisure.

History buffs who want even more can also get their fill back in Cairo at the Egyptian Museum, home to King Tut's remarkable sarcophagus. If you have more time, hop on a train or book one of Wotif’s Egypt car hire deals and travel 630 km south to the Valley of the Kings, the ancient burial grounds of some of Egypt's rulers. Hotels in Egypt are plentiful, so you'll easily find a place to stay both here and in Giza and Cairo.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

During your holiday to Egypt, you have to visit a souk, or open-air marketplace, which is a great way to satisfy retail cravings and get a taste of local life at the same time. The largest souk, Khan el-Khalili in Cairo, is a dizzying maze of shops selling souvenirs, jewellery, antiques, knickknacks and clothing.

The souks are also home to plenty of food, like coffee houses, street food vendors and restaurants. Egyptian cuisine focuses on the fruits of the Nile, so expect plenty of vegetables and legumes. Pita bread is consumed with most meals, and falafel is also a common staple on the dinner table. Most visitors will recognise many of the local foods, like baklava, kebabs, kofta and tahini.

Dinner is not just dinner in Egypt—sometimes, it’s the main event. Although there are discos, clubs and bars, they're not a huge part of the Egyptian scene; dinners are extravagant and often serve as the main nightlife activity during holidays in Egypt. If you're not too stuffed to go out, you'll find nightclubs in Cairo in the Zamalek district.

What's Next?

If you're ready to walk like an Egyptian, you can count on Wotif to help you get started planning your trip. Booking Egypt holidays with us is easier than finding street kebabs in Cairo—and that’s easy! Just mix and match airfares and hotels until you find a match that goes together like Cleopatra and Marc Antony. This getaway will be one for the history books.
