Desert sands and sultry souks
The gateway to North Africa, Morocco’s mix of vibrant ancient cities and mountain-backed beaches sets it apart from your average holiday destination. There’s the rose-tinted city of Marrakech, famous for its terracotta houses and bustling, souk-lined squares, or the fabulous beaches and coastal cool of Agadir on the country’s Atlantic coast.
Looking for a getaway with a difference? Dubai’s swift development and clutch of world records (the world’s tallest tower and biggest shopping mall, to name a few) have made it the new must-see city, with a futuristic skyline of fabulous shops, world-class dining and some of the world’s finest hotels.
Further south, neighbouring Oman offers up more than desert sands with a striking mountain landscape, authentic cities and one of the world’s most beautiful mosques.
Egypt is packed full of history, culture, beaches, activities and more. From the ancient pyramids and sphinx to iconic cities and long stretches of golden sands there’s something for everyone on holidays to Egypt.
