NEED ADVICE FOR YOUR NEXT TRIP? ARE YOU AFTER RECOMMENDATIONS, TIPS AND GUIDANCE? THE TRAVEL GEEKS HAVE THE ANSWERS…

Q // I’d like to visit Egypt, but I don’t know if it’s safe at the moment, or where to go — can you advise?

The Foreign & Commonwealth O ce (FCO) currently advises against all travel to the Sinai region, but fortunately for travellers the majority of the destination’s highlights are found along the River Nile. Intrepid Travel has a local o ce in Cairo, which means we receive reliable updates on any incidents in real time, and we can adjust our plans accordingly. Egypt has seen 150% increase year-on-year in bookings for us, demonstrating that travellers’ confidence is returning to the region and rightly so — it’s an amazing country filled with friendly locals who are eager for tourism to bounce back.

Our Egypt Experience tour is a great option for those looking to experience the main highlights and see some of the region’s most famous treasures. Set sail down the Nile, discover the Giza pyramid complex and marvel at the spectacular tombs of iconic pharaohs in the Valley of the Kings. This trip also includes a visit to Abu Simbel to discover the magnificent temples built by the great Ramses II — among Egypt’s most memorable sights. Not many trips include visits to these ruins, so this is an undoubted highlight of the tour. intrepidtravel.com

About National Geographic Traveller (UK)

We reveal the destinations that made our Cool List 2019 — from booming gastronomic hotspots to up-and-coming cities, this is the last word in where you should visit in the year to come. Elsewhere, we explore the wild side of Quebec’s national parks; leave our shoes behind on Colombia’s barefoot Pacific coast; and spend a long weekend in Bornholm. Other highlights this issue include Kuala Lumpur, Richmond, Prague, Marrakech and Taipei while our photo story joins the wild horse herders in Iceland’s rural east.
