Will this help Luxor tourism?

Post by crewmeal »

I doubt it very much, but it's a step in the right direction I guess.

Egypt to launch tourism promotion campaign in UK

Egypt’s Tourism Minister Yehia Rashed is holding a series of meetings with representatives of the Thomas Cook airline company in London as part of ongoing contacts with British decision-makers to review travel restrictions to Sharm el-Sheikh amid demands by British tour operators and parliamentarians to resume trips to the resort.

The campaign will start in public squares and the famous streets in London,
Speaker's Corner?

I'll wait for it to come to Birmingham before I have my say.

Pushing Sharm and Hurghada, looks like Luxor will have to depend on day visitors. With the price of hotels here I'm not surprised.

Exit nearly any shop in Luxor you'll end up coming out looking like that, the barstewards of shopkeepers here even want the shirt of your backs when giving you ''the price.''

Yes "D" they do, and in doing so do themselves no favours whatsoever. But that is feeding through from the terrible mess the economy is in. Have rents gone up in Luxor to Europeans or have they not got round to that yet. With food, property tax, fuel, electric and water all doubling I would expect to see rents doubling too, to counter act.
