After finishing all the historical visits, it would be time to lie back on the soft sand, put on your sun tan oil and glasses and get ready to let the Egyptian sun warm you. And just when you’re beginning to think that the sun is getting too warm, dive into the mysterious sea where you will discover hidden treasures and rare marine-life. If you’re looking for some excitement, then you can always explore the pulsating discos and cafes. In short you can never get fed up in this area with its various major destinations: Mainland Egypt and Hurghada.
