Alternative to rest in Egypt
Not used to giving in to difficulties, Russian tour operators are in no hurry to give up and offer their clients excellent alternatives to tours to Egypt. The world is big and even in the Red Sea, beloved by Russian travelers, you can dive from other friendly shores:
- An excellent alternative to Egypt in winter is the country of Jordan. A direct flight takes just over four hours, hotels are distinguished by special comfort and coziness, the traditional attitude of local residents towards foreigners is polite and correct, and there are more than enough attractions in the area.
- The beauty and warmth of the Red Sea is not to be found in Israel either. Despite the short coastline, Eilat as a seaside resort is very popular both among the Israelis themselves and among the guests of the country. The city has created excellent conditions for spending a vacation with the whole family, and therefore Eilat is a good alternative to rest in Egypt both in winter and in summer holidays..
Long accustomed to flying to the Celestial Empire, the Far Eastern residents of Russia and Siberians did not even notice any changes in the ratings of priority destinations for a beach holiday. Their hearts were long and firmly conquered by the fabulous island of Hainan in the South China Sea. An abundance of exotic fruits and European sophistication of hotels, ideal landscapes and unique oriental ceremonies, a varied infrastructure and a rich excursion program for everyone who wants to relax actively are the main features of Hainan and its beach destinations.
If you are looking for an alternative to Egypt for New Year or Christmas, the resorts of Sanya and Dadonghai, Yalongwan and Sanyavan are exactly what will satisfy your demand for warm sea, rich program and perfect service during your long-awaited vacation. The air temperature even in the coldest winter months here does not drop below +27 in the daytime, and the sea remains warm even in the midst of the Epiphany frosts..
A visa is not required to visit the island as part of a group. You just need to contact any travel agency offering group tours to the resorts of the island of Hainan.
The myth that Southeast Asia is expensive has no real basis. If you plan your vacation in advance, Thai, Vietnam, and even Cambodia can become an alternative to Egypt in terms of price and even surpass it in quality. The difference between the land of the pharaohs and the east is only in the duration of the flight and the small number of hotels in Thailand and neighboring countries, working on an all-inclusive basis. But neither one nor the other stops real adventure seekers: during the flight, you can get a great sleep to start your vacation vigorous and rested, and dinner at a cafe on the beach or a city restaurant is much more interesting than a monotonous hotel menu..
To their native places
In search of an alternative to Egypt, one should not forget about Russian beaches. Sochi and Anapa, Adler and Gelendzhik are familiar to many from childhood. The absence of entry visas and the need for currency exchange, convenient rail and air communication, familiar dishes in the restaurant menu and native speech will help you feel at home and spend your vacation without being distracted by acclimatization and changing time zones.
In a word, it is not at all difficult to find an alternative to rest in Egypt if desired and with a competent and thoughtful approach. Especially if the phone book contains the cherished number of your beloved and reliable tour operator.
