Description

Stretching for over 1050 kilometers across Egypt’s northern coast is the Mediterranean Sea, home not only to some of the country’s historic highlights, but also where you will find hip, water-loving Egyptians taking refuge from the sweltering summer heat.

If Alexandria is not your kind of ‘exotic’, then travel west to some of the region’s swankiest resorts where wealthy, bikini-clad Egyptians dance the balmy nights away with their celebrity friends. If your body isn’t bathing suit ready just yet, then travel east to Port Said, Ismailia, or Suez for a look at the intricate Belle Epoque mansions once housing Suez Canal bigwigs before one of Egypt’s largest money-earners was nationalized. From a distance, you can watch giant container ships take their shortcut from Asia to Europe.
