Egypt is a travel experience unlike any other on earth - a journey through time, a magical confrontation with civilisations 5000 years old. It is enchanting and mind-boggling to stand before the pyramids of Giza, to admire the grandeur of Karnak's temples. First time visitors to Egypt are surprised by the superb selection of top quality hotel accommodation available. In fact, one would be hard-pressed to find a capital city that would equal Cairo in the resort amenities and services good hotels provide. Most have swimming pools, sports facilities, fine continental restaurants, bars and elegant nightclubs. Rooms have air conditioning, private baths and a modern decor. The hotels in Egypt are some of the finest in the world, managed by respected hotel companies.
