  1. Cairo – For a glimpse of the more recent past, wander through the dusty, decrepit glamour of Garden City, a labyrinth of crumbling 19th and early-20th-century mansions
  2. Alexandria – Sip coffee, smoke sheesha (water pipe), or join in on the heated debates that take place in the many antique coffee houses that dot this hip metropolis
  3. Luxor – gateway to the Valley of the Kings, amongst other fabulous attractions
  4. Abu Simbel – a very remote town in the far south, with some beautiful ancient temples
  5. Aswan – Watch the sunset over one of the most beautiful stretches of the Nile at Aswan, ancient Egypt’s frontier town, and still a place where you can feel yourself in Africa
  6. Dahab – Kick back and recover from chronic temple fatigue at this ocean-side backpacker nirvana
  7. Hurghada – a town on the Red Sea, filled with all-inclusive resorts and diving
  8. Lake Nasser – created by the Aswan Dam
  9. Saqqara – filled with relics and ruins of ancient Egypt, they’re often combined as a day trip from Cairo
  10. Siwa – a stunning remote oasis near the Libyan border
