Collect your fabulous Irish Independent Travel Guides

Our unmissable travel guide series continues tomorrow with book 11 in the collection, Egypt.

The Pyramids of Giza, the dazzling jewels of Tutankhamun, the pharaohs' temples at Luxor -- Egypt is an irresistible destination for devotees of ancient history.

If you're a first-timer to this extraordinary country, you'll be amazed at how accessible everything is. You can see the Pyramids from downtown Cairo and even a short visit to the city's treasure-filled Egyptian Museum will give you a fascinating taste of this mysterious civilisation.

While you're there, take time to sail on a felucca down the Nile, explore the bewitching Valley of the Kings, and bask in the waters of the Red Sea, the warmest in the world.

Your discerning Irish Independent guide is packed with information on how best to explore the wonders of Egypt. There's a list of the top 10 must-see sights, our favourite places to stay and invaluable tips on local culture, shopping and eating out. You'll also find a lively historic flashback and easy-to-use maps.

From the frequent flier to the first-time visitor, this is a collection that anyone who loves to travel will treasure and find themselves returning to time and again.
