Sharm El Sheik and Hurghada
offer visitors the incredible opportunity to explore underwater colonies as well as ancient civilisations.
While Egypt is famous for its pharaohs, sphinxes and minx-like Cleopatra, there is a whole other world to explore beneath the waves.
And, while in some places the aquatic world is accessible only to deep sea divers, in the Red Sea tourists equipped with a snorkel can marvel at the underwater marvels.
Travellers flying to Sharm El Sheikh
on cheap flights from airports around the UK, will find a developed infrastructure to cater to their needs.
Many international hotel chains have set up shop along the coast, offering tourists a range of accommodation options.
The sand, sun and sea make the Red Sea destinations a favourite among holidaymakers who want to indulge in some relaxation and time off.
However, should lying on the beach, seeing the marine life and gently floating on the calm ocean be hard to deal with, visitors can immerse themselves in the culture of Luxor or Giza.
