Egypt’s booming tourism industry is getting a lot of international attention due to its unique destinations and competitive pricing. According to the Ministry of Tourism and Antiques, various international newspapers and websites have recently highlighted Egypt as a must-visit destination.


The British newspaper, The Sun, named Egypt a distinctive tourist destination to spend summer vacation, citing the country’s numerous archaeological sites, such as the Pyramids of Giza and the temples of Luxor and Karnak. The Sun also mentioned the many activities available in Egypt, such as horseback and camel riding, hot air ballooning, safari trips, and water sports.

Urban Matter, an American website, described traveling to Egypt as a trip of a lifetime, emphasizing the country’s rich history and culture, and the many experiences that can be enjoyed during a visit to Cairo’s markets and ancient temples.

Meanwhile, the American website Nation World News highlighted the Valley of the Kings as one of the most important archaeological tombs that reflects Egypt’s rich history.
