EGYPT is one of the most popular tourist destinations for Brits travelling abroad، the sun reported.

The Egypt Tourism Board reckon there were more than 60،000 British visitors to the north African country between January and February this year.

It's not surprising that people are keen to keep visiting the home of the pyramids، as the country offers scorching temperatures، bargain prices and plenty of culture for holidaymakers to dig their teeth into.

If you're willing to travel outside of peak times، you can get yourself an incredible deal on a flights and hotel package from a few travel companies and air lines.
