Egypt is famous for its towering landmarks, the meandering River Nile and the vast expanse of the Sahara. There is so much to see and do in Egypt that you’ll find yourself spoilt for choice, but it’s a country that combines the old and the new with remnants of its historical past all around, which Egyptians are very proud to show off. Desert monasteries and waterside temples are waiting to be explored or you can stay in resorts that cater perfectly for tourists with sun, sea and sand.

Egypt is home to many popular all-inclusive resorts but this can come with pitfalls. Unfortunately Egypt has a reputation for unsanitary conditions and you must be aware of this wherever you decide to stay in Egypt. In large all-inclusive resorts, the risk of contracting shigella is increased. Shigella is caused by animal or insect faecal matter being spread or coming into contact with food and surfaces. If toilets and swimming pools are not kept clean then this can lead to the spread of shigella and further illness, including diarrhoea and cramp.
