Alexandria City, Egypt

The second largest city in Egypt, Alexandria, known as “The Pearl of the Mediterranean”, has an atmosphere that is more Mediterranean than Middle Eastern ; its ambience and cultural heritage distance it from the rest of the country. Founded by Alexander the Great in 331 BC, Alexandria became the capital of Graeco-Roman Egypt, its status as a beacon of culture symbolized by Pharos, the legendary lighthouse that was one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The setting for the stormy relationship between Cleopatra and Mark Antony, Alexandria was also the center of learning in the ancient world. But ancient Alexandria declined, and when Napoleon landed, he found a sparsely populated fishing village.

Hurghada, Egypt

Hurghada, Egypt

The tiny fishing village of Hurghada has long since morphed into today’s dense band of concrete which marches relentlessly along the coastline for over 20km. Rampant construction has left the town blighted by half-finished shells of pleasure palaces that were never to be. Stunning coral reefs and turquoise waters perfect for windsurfing have made Hurghada, on Egypt’s Red Sea Coast, a busy resort town. Within easy reach of the stunning Giftun Islands and the Eastern Arabian Desert, Hurghada has seen enormous amounts of development in the past decade—and yes, it does seem overrun with tourists at times. But it’s a relatively easy beach escape for Europeans, and some of the world’s best diving and snorkeling sites are just offshore. Walk or catch a cab to explore the old quarter, El Dahar.
