Egypt is absolutely stunning. I spent 7 fantastical days at a resort in Sharm El-Sheikh. Although I did go out of the resort a couple of days to the market (at night), I went on a speedboat, quad/buggy biking, road a camel and went on a submarine. The experience was absolutely breath-taking.
Most of my time was spent by the pool in the resort; screaming down waterslides and the like. All in all Egypt is a wonderful place to be, however the heat may be the only reason I would state otherwise.
