Egypt attracting Britons

Egypt has attracted significant interest from tourists, according to the UK’s leading long haul operator Kuoni Travel.

Their latest Egypt advertising video, showcasing the sights, landscapes and activities that travellers can hope to pack into a luxury holiday, has had more viewings than any other, attracting the interest of 25,000 tourists over the last six months.

Britons currently top the tourist list of visitors to Egypt, followed closely by Russians in second place.

Senior product manager Alicia Welsman noted its popularity is in no small part down to the amount the country has to offer in the way of luxury holiday experiences.

She said: “As a destination, Egypt has an enormous amount to offer; it’s relatively close to the UK, has reliably good weather and presents many cultural and historic attractions as well as fantastic diving and beaches.”

According to tourism consultancy firm IPK, Egypt enjoyed 21 per cent growth in international tourism numbers last year – the highest in the North African region.
