Tourists are starting to return to Egypt, with figures showing a sharp increase in the amount of people visiting the country in October 2014 compared to the same period in 2013. Classic Holidays responds to the findings.
The number of tourists visiting Egypt saw a sharp increase recently, as nearly a million foreigners entered the country last October compared to the same period in 2013. Statistics agency CAPMAS reported the figures, which show that Egypt is becoming a very popular destination for holidaymakers once again.
The number of nights that tourists spent in Egypt during the month of October increased by a massive 151%, amounting to 9.8million compared to 3.9million back in 2013. These are the best tourism figures for the country in four years, with the recovery being attributed to a growing economy.
The most popular attractions for travellers include the warm weather, a laid back culture and the great history that can be explored across the different locations.
