Egypt is probably the world's oldest civilization having emerged from the Nile Valley around 3,100 years ago and is probably one of the oldest vacation spots, also. Early Greeks, Romans and others went there just for fun, and to see the wonders of some of mankind's earliest triumphs. The country is much more than Pyramids and monuments. It is also Red Sea scuba diving, hot night spots, luxury hotels and five star restaurants. It is romantic cruises down the Nile on festive river boats, a night at the grand opera and a cultural experience like none you have ever experienced. Egypt is a land bustling with life, sound, visual beauty and excitement. For thousands of years, Egypt has been the playground of emperors and kings.
