Middle East Holidays Rock

 green01   October 4, 2012

The climate in the Middle East and Northern Africa makes any time of the year the right time to pack your case. Gentle breezes and plenty of sunshine make for a year round holiday adventure in the sun for beach getaways, cruising or taking in the city sights.

Egypt – Two of the top Arabian adventures remain Egypt and Dubai. Egypt holidays are best bargain deals with everything included for a dynamic holiday blended with antiquity and modern conveniences. First stop is Cairo for a walk through the Giza Plateau to meet the sphinx, Great Pyramid and visit the Solar Boat Museum. Northward, Cairo city centre is bustling with five star dining, hip and happening clubs, the treasures at the Egyptian Museum and a steal of a deal to be had at the thirteen-hundred year old Khan el-Khalili market.

From Cairo, hop an overnight train or take a quick flight to Aswan for a journey up the Nile. The Nile voyage stops in the most important archaeological ports along the river to include the Middle Kingdom site at Kom Ombo, the Ptolemy monuments at Esna and the majesty of Valley of the Kings in Luxor. Extended Nile cruise itineraries also include the northern ports for Abydos and Denderah. The Nile cruise experience is fully escorted with licensed guides, provides all meals and entertainment, and is one of the best travel deals priced just right to meet and exceed most budgets. If you have time, be sure to swing by the Red Sea for a warm water swim in the crystal clean waters and live it up in the bustling tourist villages. Sharm el-Sheikh and Hurghada are the two most popular places to kick back and relax, so pick your pleasure to soak up some Egyptian rays.

Dubai – Dubai has its own spectacular scenery and places to see. Regarded as the premier shopping city in the Middle East, fabulous buys for gold, silver and international wares draw millions of visitors a year. Unlike anywhere else on earth, the Dubai shopping mall scene is a cut above the rest. Superb dining, state-of-the-art entertainment and boundless shopping options are taken very seriously in Dubai.
