Any lover of historic hotels will adore Egypt. The Mena House Hotel by the Pyramids once hosted Churchill, while the Adrere Amellal near the oasis town of Siwa is on the spot where Alexander the Great decided to conquer much of the then known world. More modern hotels include those along the Red Sea Coast, designed to attract a discerning fly and flop audience and with superb diving just offshore. On the subject of water, the cultural gems along the banks of the Nile can be explored from luxury liveaboard boats plying the world's longest river.
