LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - July 2, 2012) - The wonders of ancient Egypt have fascinated the world for hundreds of years. Since the earliest days of international travel, the colossal structures of its majestic pyramids and the vast monuments and tombs dotting its dusty landscape have promised exotic adventure and romance.
Now, booking Egypt Holidays from Cosmos means holidaymakers do not need to have the riches of a pharaoh to discover this ancient land. Tourists sit beside the serene waters of the Nile and watch the world go by, taking in Egypt's rich and vibrant culture that has spanned some 6,000 years.
Travellers need not sacrifice modern comfort to their budget: Egypt's hotels offer the latest in luxury at low-cost. Whether it's a hectic adventure in the bustling Cairo or a relaxing break on the golden sandy beaches of Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt holidays have something to offer everyone.
Egypt's capital, Cairo, does not disappoint. With its stunning architecture and wealth of sites to be visited, intrepid tourists can expect to be busy from dawn until dusk. Tourists should be sure to relax with a mint tea in a traditional 'ahwa' and listen to the melodic sound of the call to prayer at sunset.
Culture vultures looking for a cheap break can gain a different perspective on this ancient land with a cruise down the Nile. Many of the cheap package holidays to Egypt on offer from Cosmos include a ticket to sail in one of the country's traditional white-sailed feluccas, but holidaymakers can choose splash out on a trip on the luxury of a dahabiya.
History buffs can watch the wonders of the ancient world unfold before their eyes as they sail past the Valley of the Kings, a vast temple to kings and queens from the distant past, en route to the spectacular temple of Karnak at Luxor.
However, for those to whom holiday means a week or two of uninterrupted sun, catching up on the latest blockbuster from the comfort of a sun lounger, Sharm el Sheikh provides the perfect escape. And with world-class diving available metres from the shore, there's an entire underwater world waiting to be discovered for those who wish.
