Katy Perry flew 64 people to Egypt to celebrate her birthday last week.

The Roar hitmaker wanted to be surrounded by her loved ones – including her fiancé Orlando Bloom – for her 35th birthday, so she arranged for more than 60 of her friends to jet to the Middle Eastern country for 10 days.

The large group were treated to a cruise down the River Nile, a ride on a camel through the desert and watching the sunrise over the beautiful pyramids.

“Beyond the magnificent gift of travel, she gave each of her friends memories of new friendship.”

Katy’s friend Markus Molinari took to Instagram to show fans a snippet of the holiday in which he captioned the images: “How to build a powerful bond in 10 days.”

He added: “Get 64 people hand picked by a musical goddess @KatyPerry to live on a boat down the Nile with only ONE request from her that each of us step out of our comfort zones and for every meal sit with someone different.

“This would be our birthday gift to her. This is my sister. My friend Katy, selfless. Beyond the magnificent gift of travel, she gave each of her friends memories of new friendship and a bond that only we will share for the rest of our lives.
