Arriving in Basrah

Book your flights to Basra with Etihad Airways and get ready to discover a mythical land where legend and fantasy go hand in hand. Located in the Arabian Gulf, the life of its inhabitants has always been linked to the sea, so it’s not strange that Sinbad legends are still alive in the areas surrounding its port.

Plan Your Basra Holiday

Travel to Basra and open the door to its past. Old Town is still impressive with its amber-brick buildings, openwork tracery windows, and its ancient mosques that remain as a sign of ancient splendour. Use the Shatt al-Arab River as your guide and you’ll see its most urban side at the Corniche al-Basora pier and its more traditional side in the neighbourhoods along the riverbanks.

If you decide to book tickets to Basra using Etihad’s Deals section, don't forget to go to Sinbad Island and explore its beautiful gardens in the middle of the river. With Etihad Airways you can find good flight deals to Basra, but remember that the best season to travel is during the fall and winter. Regarding accommodation, it won't be too difficult to find cheap hotels in Basra as tourism is still growing.

Plan Your Cairo Holiday

You must travel to Cairo to experience its ancient marvels and also get a feel of the modern emblems of the city like The Opera House on the island of Zamalek. This place is a living symbol of post modern architecture. Drive up to the Suez Canal to watch a host of migratory birds of prey with the amazing sights of the canal in the backdrop. Just stroll down the Al-Azhar Park to take some stunning pictures of locals and the colourful and varied vegetation that is grown.

The weather in Cairo is moderate and dry most of the time. Summers can be somewhat hot though, which can put a hold on some outdoor activities. Cheap hotels in Cairo are available during the off-peak season in the hotter months. Book your tickets to Cairo in advance to enjoy the fall and spring which are recommended as the best seasons.
