General Information About Egypt

History

History

Egypt has a rich and tumultuous history with records dating back to about 3150 BC at the beginning of one of the greatest ancient civilisations in the world. Ancient Egypt stretched along the fertile Nile Valley and delta, and the great thinkers of the day invented many objects and techniques that we now take for granted including the door lock, one of the earliest forms of paper and of course construction techniques such as those used to create the colossal pyramids. In the many centuries between these wondrous creations and modern day, Egypt has experienced a whirlwind of dynasties, conquerors and cultural influences. Look closely during your visit for Hellenic, Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman, Arab and European influences still prevalent throughout the architecture and ambiance of the country.

Cuisine

Cuisine

Egyptian cuisine is the delicious result of their rich cultural history, bringing together an array of spices and influences from Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Travellers with a large sweet tooth will want to try a steaming cup of shai tea and might want to pick up a bit of halawa to munch on while exploring the souks. Halawa is a sweet made from sesame paste that is common throughout many countries in the region, and it is often infused
with other nuts or seeds. If you happen to be on one of our Egypt holidays during a festival and are feeling particularly famished, try the Nubian dish fatta. This delicious (and calorific, it must be said) dish is a concoction of toasted Arabian bread, broth, rice, garlicky tomato sauce, and braised meat that must be tasted to be believed. If you’re not feeling so adventurous, then not to worry! We would recommend that you try ful medames, a fava bean dip somewhat similar to hummus, and of course there are always a wide array of cuisines available in most resorts.
