What is important to me when I'm choosing a location to holiday is:

1) proximity to airport
2) safe, secure, clean hotel with restaurant, pool, sitting areas (inside & outside) with fast free wifi
3) ideally be located within a city or small town where I can hassle free stroll out for the day for a choice of shopping, museums/churches/temples/galleries, beaches, zoos, cultural & eco destinations nearby or within a day trip.

What Luxor offers is very enticing by way of antiquities however just can't see returning at this time.

With respect, Dr Who, you're not exactly poverty stricken though, are you?

What would you say are the top three things the average person from the UK just MUST have on a daily basis to make their life comfortable?

When I'm away from home I definitely need morning coffee, a comfy place to lounge during the day and a comfortable and quiet place to sleep at night. Those are my 3 must haves that it fairly easy for me to go anywhere .....

Here's a good idea to attract visitors to Egypt…..
Having been in blighty for a bit now and watching channel 4 news for the first time last night it seems safer to live in Egypt than England well safer than Manchester with all that radicalisation going on here, well if you have to live in Manchester for any length of time being radicalized and popping over to Syria sounds quite attractive, to me.
We used to pop up to the Twisted Wheel club on a Saturday sometimes, but you really wouldn't want to live there.
I must say the media and powers to be are playing this fear thing to the max over here, immigration carrying ebola suicide bombers that abound is remarakable….:cool:
