Why this Egyptian resort is becoming popular again with holidaymakers

Posted 03.04.17
Why this Egyptian resort is becoming popular again with holidaymakers Thomas Cook has seen bookings to Hurghada shoot up by more than 100 per cent.

Egypt has become one of the fastest growing holiday hotspots for Mancunians this summer.

Thomas Cook has revealed that bookings to the country have shot up by more than 109 per cent - with the Red Sea destination of Hurghada seeing a resurgence in popularity this year.

The second and third fastest growing destinations are Cuba and mainland Spain, which are up 22 per cent and 19 per cent respectively.

Once deemed the quieter, more up-and-coming resort, Hurghada is now hugely popular, offering a classic beach holiday at a good price.

The tour operator has created a list of the top five activities to enjoy in the region, to help travellers during their summer holidays.

Mahmya beach on Giftun Island tops Tripadvisors list of things to do whilst on holiday in Hurghada.

Day trippers can enjoy the glowing white sand and crystal clear waters, before relaxing under a beach umbrella and snorkelling amongst the beautiful coral reef.

Eygpts largest water park, Makadi Water World, in the heart of the Red Sea Riviera has more than 50 different rides, including an adrenaline-fuelled 19m free-fall slide.

The Senzo Mall meanwhile, is the largest shopping complex of its kind in the Red Sea Riviera. Shoppers can escape the midday heat and browse the extensive fashion and homeware stores.

The fourth activity to make the list is learning to scuba dive in the Red Sea.

The Red Sea is considered to be one of the best diving spots in the whole world, with clear, calm and warm waters, and some of the most vibrant and colourful marine life imaginable.

Excursions and courses can be booked through hotels.

The final suggestion on the list is taking an unmissable trip to see they pyramids.

The tour operator recommends taking a trip to Cairo to experience the last remaining wonder of the ancient world: the Great Pyramid of Giza.

The ancient city of Luxor meanwhile, is just a four hour drive from Hurghada, ideal for a day excursion.

Thomas Cook currently has a number of hotel and flight package deals to Hurghada, with flights out of Manchester Airport.
