Cairo

Cairo Details:

Take a flight with Gulf Air to Cairo, Egypt, a country so rich with history that its ancient temples, monuments and treasures have attracted visitors for centuries. There is simply no other place on earth that comes close to offering as much history and culture, or so many remarkably preserved ancient artefacts and structures. Your flight to Egypt will allow you to experience a combination of history and adventure, fantastic weather, stunning scenery and friendly people. Explore the depths of the Red Sea, walk around 2,000-year old temples, or sit back and relax on a beach in Sharm El Sheikh. You can even barter for goods in a bustling souk. When planning your flight to Cairo, the Great Pyramids, the Sphinx and the River Nile would no doubt be the highlight of any travel itinerary but there is so much more to explore that one or two visits to Egypt are simply not enough. For a more laid back experience, you can travel to the Red Sea coast with its spectacular beaches, where the sea is teeming with colourful coral reefs and the most exotic fish. The water is crystal clear making it ideal for scuba diving and snorkelling. The major attractions in this country of one million square miles are Cairo, Alexandria and the northern coast, Luxor, Abu Simbel, Aswan and the Pharaonic treasures, the Sinai Peninsula, and the fabulous Red Sea coastline including the resort centre of Sharm El Sheikh.
