Leading family holiday company First Choice, is tipping Egypt to be a popular destination for family holidays this year, as thousands of holiday-makers flock to the North African country to take advantage of what it has to offer.

According to the recent Foreign and Commonwealth Office and ABTA report British visitor numbers to Egypt has risen 38% in the last year* and it’s not hard to see why.

Combining history, culture and year-round sun, holidays in Egypt have always been popular, but this year, the country is proving to be exceptionally good value for money with all-inclusive resorts and a favourable exchange rate.

There’s so much to do and see with snorkelling in the Red Sea to visiting the Pyramids of Giza in Luxor and if you are planning to get married abroad but want somewhere with a flight time of less than six hours follow in the foot steps of Spice Girl Mel B who wed Stephen Belafonte in Hurghada last November in a four-day family extravaganza.
