The prospect of holidaying in a new country is exciting but can also fill us with trepidation. That’s because we’re venturing into new territory and exploring new cultures. With this comes stereotypes and myths. Some are true or close to the truth and others are just pure fallacies.
If you’re heading over on bargain Egypt deals or an all inclusive holiday, we’re here to shine some light on those truths and shatter those myths.
The only mode of transport in Egypt is camel
If you are worried that you will be expected to haul yourself up onto a camel following plane disembarkation, relax. Although camels are a great way to see the sights, especially the desert, you will not be travelling to your hotel on one. Well not unless you want to of course, but it could prove costly and more than a little uncomfortable. Not a great way to start your holiday.
There’s a McDonald’s at the Pyramids
Don’t be ridiculous, that’s like saying they built Stonehenge next to a main road. Anyway we think you’ll find it’s a Pizza Hut on top of a KFC. Who would want a burger at such an historical site, a pizza maybe but not a burger…that’s just insane. It is pretty useful for ordering a takeaway pizza to be delivered, especially while you wait in the queue to enter the Pyramids. Deep pan or stuffed crust?
All your meals and drinks are provided
Well if you’re on an all inclusive holiday then yes they are because that’s what an all inclusive holiday is all about. You’ll also find nightly entertainment and other activities included too. Result. This does not however extend outside of the resort or hotel. If you leave a restaurant without paying you will be doing what is universally known as ‘a runner’, and that may result in an all inclusive overnight stay in a cell.
We’re guessing you will come across plenty more untruths on your holiday, but half the fun is uncovering them. So keep us posted.
