Egypt offers sunny solution to winter blues

19th Nov 2012

If the prospect of spending winter in the UK leaves you pining for sunshine as the nights draw in, Egypt could be just the tonic.

Heading for warmer climes could help keep the winter blues at bay, as exposure to the sun's UVB rays helps keep vitamin D levels topped up, suggesting the likelihood of suffering seasonal affective disorder could be reduced.

Average temperatures of 20C in December are the perfect backdrop to a country with something for everyone, whether you're a thrill-seeker, culture vulture, or just looking for some downtime on the plentiful beaches.

Bustling Cairo is hard to beat, with its rich history and culture. Shopaholics will find plenty to spend their Egyptian pounds on in the souk, while food lovers are in for a treat with the local specialities.

And last but not least, it makes a perfect base to venture out to the iconic Great Pyramids, one of the Seven Wonders of the World and a must-see in anyone's travel book.
