Mumbai, 26th September, 2018: Travelxp, the world’s leading travel channel reaching more than 92 million homes globally brings superlative viewing experience to the television screens with two new series of the popular shows “Backpack” and “City Breaks”. Titled “Backpack-Egypt” and “City Breaks - Salzburg”, the shows uncover and explore respectively; a civilization which is rich in history and culture and a picturesque old town which is an UNESCO Heritage Site.

“Backpack - Egypt” and “City Breaks - Salzburg” are presented by Travelxp anchor Sabrina Chakici, who is a popular British television presenter and travel expert. She recently hosted live from the red carpet at The British Fashion Awards and The Golden globes interviewing Lady Gaga and Christopher Bailey. Sabrina has also presented on a number of Sky Channels and is a recognizable radio voice over artist for brands such as Boots, Glossy Box and Lego; as well as well-known for hosting the breakfast show for Vibe 197.6 FM.

In “Backpack-Egypt”, Sabrina will take travelers to the land of dessert and the country known for pyramids, ancient temples and crafty mosques - Egypt! Viewers will be able to explore an exceptional and pleasing experience to an ancient city which is much more than Hollywood fantasies of mummies and hidden treasures.

Show host Sabrina takes us through the Austrian town of Salzburg in “City Breaks Salzburg”, unraveling a city, nestled in the beautiful Alps. Unwrap Salzburg with Sabrina, a city not just known for Mozart but also for its cityscape dominated by beautiful churches, castles and palaces.

Nisha Chothani, Director - Travelxp, said, “Those who are passionate about traveling are always in search of new places to travel to and explore. We are happy that Travelxp is able to bring to its viewers new television shows which are 100% original travel content. With Backpack-Egypt and City Breaks - Salzburg, we give our audience new destinations to learn about which are so different from each other, making the wait for the release of the shows even more worthwhile. The idea is to showcase the places in depth, giving travel buffs a great experience while watching it.”

Backpack-Egypt will telecast three episodes starting with “Cairo” which will comprise the first part, where Sabrina starts her backpacking journey in Egypt from the capital Cairo, evenly painted in the shades of ancient Islamic and modern architecture. Marveled at the Pyramids, exploring the necropolis of Giza, Sabrina calls off her day after an eventful river cruise on the Nile.

In the second part “Alexandria and Luxor”, Travelxp will unfold Alexandria, a perfect amalgamation of modern culture and traditional art. It covers the city from the Royal Library to the glorious Citadel on the Mediterranean coast. The grand temple of Luxor dedicated to the rejuvenation of kingship in Egypt with a dash of traditional Arabic delicacies of Koshari and Falafel.

“Luxor and Sinai” is its third part and the final leg of Sabrina’s journey where she uncovers the mysteries of the ancient temples of Luxor, Aswan and Abu Simbel paired with the Monastery of Catherine atop Mt. Sinai. Bidding adieu to Egypt she visits the vibrant town of Sharm-El-sheikh, exploring the local market and a mosque.
