Egypt attracts tourists with an original New Year greeting

The coronavirus has dealt a tangible blow to the country’s tourism, and the authorities are trying every way to remedy the situation.

Egypt released an original video-congratulation with the year 2021, promoting the most popular locations of the country.

The video used the song of famous Egyptian singer Sherin Abdel Wahab “Egypt, land of beauty. The video shows all the attractions of Egypt and features of rest in Egypt. The viewer is introduced to the picturesque landscapes, beaches and archeological locations of the country.

It is worth noting that the pandemic dealt a serious blow to Egyptian tourism. Many hotels were left vacant during the season, and the total number of tourists decreased significantly.

The authorities of the country have staked, among other things, on cultural tourism, opening, for example, the Sharm el-Sheikh Museum, which was the first in the famous city, loved by many for its fascinating underwater world and sandy beaches. Egypt hopes that the country will be visited by 500 thousand people a month in 2021.

On the other hand, it is not so easy to restore tourism. The number of international flights in Egypt dropped by 72% in the first 10 months of 2020. The organization says that the country suffered losses from the pandemic 10 times higher than during the global economic crisis in 2009.
