Since the extraordinary events at Tahrir Square in 2011, where thousands of passionate Egyptians managed to enter a new democratic era, tourism to Egypt has taken a hit. Tourism is essential for Egyptian prosperity post-revolution, with the industry providing jobs for 16 million Egyptians.
To possibly help in boosting tourism, I decided to write a post recommending four reasons why you should visit Egypt!
1) Monuments and Artefacts
From The Metropolitan Museum in New York, to the Louvre in Paris, Ancient Egypt tends to feature prominently in museums world-wide. Recently, the exhibition “Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs,” travelled the world ended the final leg of a 10-year-long tour in Japan. The exhibition attracted more than 7 million visitors around the world. In Australia it managed to break attendance records at the Melbourne Museum.
