T is for Tourist Attractions (and, yes, most of them are safe)
Well, needless to say, a lot has happened here in Egypt over the past several weeks. If you haven’t heard, there’s been a revolution. (Those are not words I ever thought I’d type!) The Egyptian Revolution of 2011, also being called the 25 January Revolution, led to the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak on Friday, February 11. Mubarak handed over power to The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces.
The army and Egyptian citizens are beginning to rebuild their government and repair the damages (physical, financial, and emotional) to the country and her people. One of the areas severely hurt was, of course, tourism. Many tourists and foreign residents left the country during the protests and clashes. But Egypt would like you to know that most of the tourist attractions are safe and open for business! In fact, many of the attractions and seaside resorts remained quiet and free of protests the whole time.
Visit the Egyptian Tourist Authority to learn more about the amazing tourist attractions and destinations that the country boasts. There’s the Nile Valley with Marsa Martrouh, El Alamein, Alexandria, Cairo, Luxor, and Aswan. You can travel to Sinai and visit Taba, Nuweiba, Dahab, or Sharm el Sheikh. There’s also Ras Mohamed National Park and St. Catherine’s Monastery. For real adventurers, desert safaris in the Western Desert, Sahara, or Sinai are a must! These safaris are my top choice. What’s yours?
Spread the word…Egypt awaits!
