Egypt is set to see a big increase in the number of people who visit the country in the coming months.

Egypt is once again set to see a big increase in its number of visitors in the coming months, as travellers become more confident in the country.

The country’s tourism ministers have announced they expect to see figures rise close to the 14.5 million visitors a year the country was experiencing prior to the revolution in 2011.

With peace once again restored in the nation, it is expected people will be happier to travel there and spend time among its iconic landmarks and famous resorts, including the pyramids and the diving resorts of Dahab and Sharm el Sheikh.

The signs for increased tourism figures are already positive, with a 40 per cent increase seen in the first four months of this year compared with the same period of 2011.

“The growth in tourism numbers this year will be driven by new products we are offering like the reopening of the Nile cruise from Cairo to Aswan,” said minister of tourism Mounir Fakhry AbdelNour.
