The Rough Guide to Egypt is the ultimate guide to this fascinating country. The guide opens with a 24-page, full-colour section introducing Egypt’s highlights, including in-depth accounts of all the top sites, from the pyramids at Giza to the incredible tombs in the Valley of the Kings. The main heart of the guide includes detailed, insider listings on where to find the tastiest food and the best places to stay, whether you’re on a budget or travelling in style. There is plenty of practical advice on a host of outdoor pursuits, including diving in the Red Sea to camel-trekking in the Western desert. The guide also includes thorough and informed commentary on Egypt’s history and contemporary culture, as well as detailed maps and plans for every region.
