The UK and Ireland director of the Egyptian State Tourist Office has advised those taking flights to Egypt to make sure they visit the famous Pyramids.Khaled Ramy confirmed the best time of day to visit the landmark is in the afternoon as the site is usually less crowded.

“Timing is very important. I usually visit the Pyramids in the afternoon. They are less crowded and the sun light is perfect to take a picture of all three pyramids from the panorama area,” explained Mr Ramy.

A survey conducted by Truprint discovered that one in five Brits named the Pyramids of Egypt as their favourite landmark – beating competition from London’s Big Ben, France’s Eiffel Tower and Australia’s Sydney Opera House.

Mr Ramy also advised travellers to Egypt to consider taking a Nile cruise during their stay. The city of Cairo also offers a wide choice of cultural experiences for holidaymakers.
