    Egypt For Honeymooners

    If you’re planning on tying the knot and are looking for somewhere different, exotic and at the same time culturally significant to spend your first days as a newly married couple, then why not consider Egypt?

    Situated in northern Africa, the country is easily accessible, particularly for Europeans where there are numerous low cost flights operating out of most European cities. It is also easily accessible for North Americans with some direct flights; however it’s quite easy to get a long haul flight to one of the main European airports – Heathrow, Amsterdam, Paris – and be in Egypt a few hours later.

    An important consideration is the time of year you are planning your wedding. Being in Africa Egypt can be very hot in the summer, hotter than most people will be used to. Hitting Egypt in some of the cooler period is often a better option for those who come from cooler climates, so if your wedding is booked outside of the summer period Egypt is definitely still a good option.

    Cooler weather means you will be able to spend more time outside exploring – rather than taking a nap during the afternoon – meaning you will get to see a lot more and reduce the risk of looking like a lobster in all of your honeymoon photos. Another plus for visiting outside of the core summer period is that things will be slightly cheaper – in the mid to low season period, accommodation and flights and generally cheaper – and there will be less tourists, so it will be less crowded.

    The pyramids of Giza are one of the most popular places to visit and no matter what your plans for the trip are, they should definitely be included along the way. Naturally this is one of the most touristy areas, so don’t be disappointed by the coaches and guided tours.

    Egypt is a big country, so planning is definitely needed in order to see the most sights. Many travellers fly into cities in Upper Egypt such as Luxor and Aswan, but only then realise the actual distance to Cairo (720km) – where the pyramids actually are.

    Sharm El Sheikh is another popular destination; however it is quite a distance from Cairo. Despite this many tourists still manage to visit both, although it is worth keeping in mind the distance and planning to spend at least a couple of days in both in order to make the trip worthwhile.

    For those who just want to relax, enjoy the sunshine, learn to scuba dive and eat on their honeymoon, a Sharm El Sheikh holiday could be just the ticket. The resort is well known for its luxury hotels and top class restaurants, all of which are perfect for a relaxing honeymoon abroad.

    Wherever you decide to visit in Egypt, whether it’s for scuba diving in Sharm El Sheikh, visiting the pyramids in Giza, visiting the city of Cairo or taking a cruise down the Nile – the country has plenty to offer newlyweds and honeymooners – just be sure to remember its size.
