Good Morning All
Has anyone been to Egypt I go on 22nd June to Sharm el Sheikh with my Hubby and Son cant wait .
Yes I went to sharm el sheik in march it was a fantastic holiday. The staff in hotel couldn't do enough for us and the tan I came home with was amazing. Beaches are lovely.
Been to Egypt twice but both times to Hurghada. Given a choice of Cairo or Luxor I found Luxor much more breath taking so if you are thinking of taking in the history I would recommend there. It's incredibly hot, but there was a nice welcome breeze. Enjoy I love Egypt.
I've just this week booked Egypt for a week in October. Can't wait, but know its going to cost a fortune dong trips to Cairo, Luxor and Petra
It is pretty expensive and depending where you are staying they are long long days too.
Yeah I've seen that Staying in Sharm El Sheikh, and only there for 6 full days but don't want to miss anything in case I never get another chance to go
You'll have to buy a visa at the airport when you get there! Xx we didn't bother with Cairo etc

In Luxor we did Valley of the kings, queen hatsput (however its spelt) temple and Karnak which was totally breathtaking. For 6 full days I think doing 3 big trips will be too much - just one was tiring in a fortnight and you want time for relaxing, snorkelling and scuba diving too.
I Have been to Egypt a few times, my husband is from there not been sharm like most of you thought, i usualy stay in ismailia which is on the suez canal 2 hrs from cairo airport, i have been to cairo fair few times seen pyramids, cairo museum, cairo tower, had a boat on the nile and checked out all the big shopping malls, and last time i went in april went to citadel which was good
i want to check out khan el khalili which is a shopping area popular with tourists but gets busy and bit crowded and you can get hassled therelol
if anyone needs advice about egpyt im nore than willing to help including the rules if anyone wants to marry there hahaha
Ahhhhhhhhhh I've only just seen this, I went to Egypt with my sister a few years ago & loved it, we walked up Mount Sinai at night to watch the sunrise in the morning, that was pretty amazing, as the sun rose people started chanting
im sure it was something religous they was chanting, i would love to do that sit up there watching the sun rise im sure it was magical
Yes it was magical & you could see the change in the colour of the mount as the sun rose. I don't think we'll go back (no reason other than I like to try new places), but if I did I'd do that again.
wow sounds amazing i wish i can see this one day its just soooo far from familys home and we cant go egypt without not being with them that would be a no no

I lived in Cairo for 3 years in the early 70's I loved it, we could see the pyramids from our kitchen window!! We used to go to the Khan el Khalili quite a lot and yes be prepared for being pestered while you are shopping. We did the Nile cruise from Aswan to Luxor on a little old paddle steamer looked like the one from the film "Death on the Nile". I would love to go back for a holiday as although it is a huge noisy city I think there is something magical about it.
Three sure is something magical about cairo
