Forbes: Egyptian tourism flourishes under Sisi’s rule
CAIRO – 27 December 2018: Laurie Werner, unique travel experiences specialist at Forbes, reported: “In my last visit to Egypt I enjoyed lots of privileges and benefits in comparison to my former visit to Egypt in 2007.”
“During my former visit, the tension and security forces were everywhere; we were warned that we might undergo some threats especially in our visit to Luxor. Yet, after the Arab Spring in 2011, these threats were not essential because tourism reduced to a crawl. But now, the several years of general stability after Egyptian President Sisi came to office all are ended,” Werner further continued.
In addition, Forbes recorded that tourism rate increased up to 50 percent compared to last year.
Werner recounted in her weekly article at Forbes entitled “Why You Should Go to Egypt Now” her experience in Egypt, stating that the exchange rate is tripled.
Moreover, Werner displayed the epic sights she visited in Egypt: the Pyramids, Sphinx, and the Egyptian Museum.
“I stay tuned to the opening of the Great Egyptian Museum that will be officially opened in 2020. I am impatient to see all the unique monuments, distinguished tombstones and new archaeological discoveries,” Werner said.
She calls the entire world to visit Egypt for its incredible places, fabulous hospitality and lovely people. Furthermore, Werner recommended a set of places to visit such as Khan el-Kalalili, Philae temple, El Gouna and Aswan.
