The China Tourist Office of the Egyptian Embassy has announced four self-drive routes for Chinese tourists.
The four routes are self drive holiday trips for around the Red Sea and Mediterranean, a luxury trip for the whole of Egypt including the Sinai Peninsula, a popular route for all of Egypt including the Sahara, and a recreation trip combining self drive in Egypt and a luxury cruise on the Nile. Of the four specially selected routes, the longest will take 18 days and the shortest will only take eight days.
However tourists will have to apply for related documents since Chinese driver's licenses are not recognized in Egypt. Chinese travel agencies, local Egyptian agencies and car clubs that have taken part in the selection of the four routes can all handle this.
Several Chinese agencies now are capable of organizing groups to Egypt for self drive trips. Tourists can also directly contact local Egypt agencies such as Benu Travel Group and Blue Sky Travel Group of Egypt. They will tailor personalized routes to tourists' specific requirements.
