A new travel guide published in Britain offers travellers all the information they will need while visiting Egypt.
Whether looking for a cheap meal of chicken with rosemary, or one of the varied vegetable dishes at Tutankhamun near the ferry port in Luxor, or a room at the luxurious Old Cataract Hotel opposite Elephantine Island in Aswan, the new Green Guide Egypt by Michelin Travel Publications claims to have an answer.
Like all new-style Green Guides in the range there is a 'how to use' page inside the front cover. This is followed by general information on Egypt past and present, including practical points, geography, art and architecture, and its people and culture.
The main section of the guide is devoted to specific areas, from Alexandria, the Mediterranean Coast and the Delta to Tell el-Amarna.
Depending on the level of interest, certain areas are rated from one to three Michelin stars, and principal sights in the area are rated similarly. New in this guide is a rating system for beach resorts, indicated by one to three 'sun' symbols.
Essential for anyone hiring a car are colour maps of the country to help plan itineraries, and these feature principal sights, driving tours and places to stay.
