Egypt: “The timeless place where you can spend all the time in the world.”
The name of Egypt has changed over many centuries……
Egypt’s land is of a unique nature which is very difficult to be seen anywhere else. It is both old and new. It is a blend of deserts and towering majestic colourful mountains, sandy beaches with their turquoise refreshing waters, colourful fish and matchless coral reefs.
It is a place where you can discover and explore one of the Seven Wonders of the World, explore the breathtaking temples and be in awe as you get transported back in time to really relive the history of Egypt. Here you can take the opportunity to see the ancient mummies before the campaigns are successful to get them put back in their tombs. Experience a changing Egypt, one where the old and the new live together side by side.
Egypt is more than a county to visit. She has more than dead tombs and mummies to see. She offers more than sunbathing and fun for all travellers. She offers more than just a different place to be. Egypt offers you her heart and a people full of patience and care. Egypt offers you her soul; that you may drink from the Nile and be forever smitten. Egypt offers you her tears; that she will not be forgotten. Egypt opens her heart and arms to you. People who visit Egypt don’t just return with souvenirs but with a small piece of Egypt in their hearts.
Visit Egypt and enjoy a land of mystery. Egypt is a crossroad of three different continents; it is a part of Africa, the Sinai Peninsula is part of Asia and the Mediterranean Sea plays an important role to connect Egypt with Europe. It is also a part of the Arabic world: the Middle East, therefore Egypt is the heart and the centre of culture and civilization to the whole world. Egypt, a land full of beautiful contradictions, a constant journey in time, from the present to the past and back again.
