Middle East
Egypt

Over the past century, Egypt has been home to the most celebrated icons in the modern history of the Middle East. Naguib Mahfouz, Yousef Shahin and Um Kalthoum, all managed to capture a glimpse of the spirit and energy of Egypt through their work; yet there’s still much more unvarnished beauty awaiting you in Egypt. In a magnificent contrast of both geography and scenery, luscious lagoons are tucked away at the Red Sea, while lavish sandy dunes reside by the Pyramids and the Nile pierces through Cairo’s towering high-rises and museums; Egypt could well resemble a continent on its own.
