7 of Egypt's Vacation Spots Then and Now

Check out these vintage of photos of some of Egypt's hottest vacation spots, and how far we've come today.

There’s something extremely alluring about the past, almost romantic even. With the recent wave of travel exploration that has been plaguing this generation of millenials, we’re always searching for the next spot to explore and that includes Egypt. All the way from the Red sea to the Mediterranean, we’ve spent different holidays lounging by Sahel's beaches, partying in Sharm El Sheikh's infamous clubs or simply unplugging from the city's chaos in Sinai's natural beauty. We often forget though, that these destinations were often where our parents and grandparents would vacation as well, where their experience was a world apart from ours. Here are a few vintage photos of our favorite vacation destinations, then and now.
