It was once an important part of Ancient Egyptian culture but wine has virtually disappeared from the country. Now there is a small revival of the drink.
To go to the Red Sea and not delve beneath the surface is to not go at all. The diving and snorkelling is some of the best you will ever see.
While the Red Sea resort of El Gouna might be popular with tourists, there are also thousands of expats who call it home. I meet an English couple who are doing just that.
I’m not normally a huge fan of resort-style holidays but this Red Sea development in Egypt is quite unique. It’s an entire town built by just one company!
