Travel and Tourism - Egypt - February 2014
Egypt is the most popular destination in the Middle East but the last couple of years have not been the best of times for the country’s tourism industry. No sooner had international arrivals started to recover from the 2008-09 global recession than they fell victim to the negative publicity engendered by the Arab Spring of January 2011.
By the end of that year, the number of foreign tourists visiting Egypt had dropped and although inbound arrivals started to rebound in 2012, that modest recovery was wiped out in 2013 when international arrivals dropped to 9.5 million, due to the ousting of President Morsi, which once more saw the beleaguered Egyptian populace take to the streets.
This is not the first time the Egyptian tourism industry has suffered setbacks. Back in 1997, Islamist extremists massacred 58 tourists in Luxor and in the mid-2000s there were another series of terrorist attacks. Then, as now, however, the government took swift action to restore confidence in the country and it did not take long for inbound arrivals to rebound.
