MS Sonesta Moon Goddess
Take a cruise down the world’s most iconic river in consummate luxury on this sophisticated 49-cabin boat. It’s a huge affair for having so few guests, and amenities include a jogging track, nightly stage show and disco. Of course, you’ll hopefully be too mesmerised by the sights to have free time.
The throbbing centre of the country’s tourism industry is best tackled via an organised tour. This way you can keep your sightseeing relatively hassle-free, whether you’re exploring the tombs on the west bank or the myriad temples of the east.
