Marco Polo Egypt: the Travel Guide with Insider Tips


Experience all Egypt’s attractions with this up-to-date and authoritative guide, complete with Insider Tips. You’ll discover great hotels, authentic restaurants, plus shopping tips and information on festivals and events.

Useful too is the ‘Perfect Route’, which outlines a journey through the country, and the handy folding pull-out map supplied in addition to the Road Atlas inside.

The country on the Nile isn't exactly short on superlatives. It is considered the cradle of civilisation and as having established mankind's oldest system of administration. The use of stone to construct buildings was invented in Egypt, archaeologists discovered the earliest recorded human history here, and the last remaining wonder of the ancient world still stands: the Pyramids of Giza.

With MARCO POLO Egypt, you too can discover the Land of the Pharaohs, also now a land for divers, sun-worshippers, desert explorers and culture vultures. The practical pocket-sized guide takes you to a destination that has so much to fascinate and entice. Would you prefer to go diving in the Red Sea or take an Agatha Christie style cruise on Nile to the temples and tombs of the Pharaohs? Enjoy a shisha in a trendy Alexandria café or watch the sun set across the vast desert? Join the bustle of Africa's most exciting city, Cairo, or simply gaze at the pyramids? Egypt awaits! The Insider Tips reveal how to have an unforgettable trip with local Bedouin in the Sinai and where you can get an excellent vegetarian breakfast. Panels in each chapter suggest things to do if you’re on a tight budget and where you might pick up some real bargains. By following the Trips & Tours you can enjoy some intense Egyptian experiences: cruising to the country’s most beautiful temples, a night hike up Mount Sinai and visiting some desert oases. With its fascinating underwater world of coral reefs, sweeping bays and long beaches, Egypt’s Red Sea Coast has some great places to enjoy your favourite active pursuits – the most important contacts and details can be found in the Sport & Activities chapter. The Dos and Don'ts warn you against annoying the fish and getting taken in by fake guides.

MARCO POLO Egypt provides comprehensive coverage of all areas of the country. To help you get around there’s the detailed Road Atlas, a useful map of Cairo in the cover, plus the pull-out map.
