Egypt enjoys a precious historic heritage dating back to remote ages. The great panoramic pyramids and sphinx rank the top of all views of the world, besides, the remnants of the prehistoric, Pharaonic, Greek, Roman, Coptic and Islamic periods. Leisure Tourism is attracting these days great attention yet it is still virgin and unexplored. Vast deserts are unturned, large mountains stand above the warm rich sandy lands, and above all charming coasts stretching for thousands of kilometers. The isolated coasts of Suez and Aqaba gulfs are considered internationally a tourist paradise. The same applies to Red Sea Coasts and to Mediterranean Coasts.
Cairo is the city that recapitulates more than 13 hundred years of history, modern civilization and culture in beautiful setting. The pyramids stand high and glorious, all guided by the wisdom of Sphinx, and enriched by the flow of the River Nile. Cairo architecture reflects the tastes of a cosmopolitan society.
Marsa Alam is a port and a resort located on the red sea in the Eastern South of Egypt, 700 kilometers away from Cairo and 280 kilometers away from Hurghada. Marsa Alam also has an International Airport located 60 kilometers to the North of the city. The city transformed from being just a small fishing village to become a famous sea resort and a center for diving and sea trips as the city contains matchless coral reefs and diving spots.

Some say that November and April are the best months to visit Red Sea. Weather is perfect, with average 28°C air and 23°C water temperature. But even in January you can swim, snorkel or dive so you can enjoy Red Sea all year long.
Although average temperature varies between 21°C during colder months, there are many days with much higher temperature. On such days, you can spend whole day on the sun without getting burned. Wind is a bit stronger sometimes, and although it cause chilly feeling, it's not enough to stop people from swimming and snorkeling. During summer months temperatures are higher but dry weather make it a lot easier.
