Egypt could be said to have six different
tourist super-sites. Each has its own flavor, and mostly each serves
a different purpose. Surprisingly, or perhaps not, most of these
tourist areas do not depend on ancient monuments to sustain them.
In fact, only Luxor is completely dependent on this trade. These
super-sites consist of:
and the immediate area around the City. It could in fact be argued
that this area extends to Marsa Matruh to the west on the coast.
The area has a Mediterranean feel about it, and the attraction is
the Mediterranean Sea, and to the people of Cairo, a somewhat cooler
Cairo and the immediate area around the City. Cairo
has everything. Cairo has great hotels, entertainment, restaurants,
all manner of monuments from throughout the history of
it is often the entry point for most people visiting Egypt. It even
has bowling allies and several golf courses to chose from.
and the surrounding area. Luxor is a living museum with vast numbers
of ancient Egyptian monuments. It is also highly oriented to tourists,
and might be thought of in the same regard as a theme park, where
the attractions just happen to be real monuments.
Aswan and the surrounding area. Aswan is probably the least of the
super-site tourist areas, but has great hotels, along with the huge
Lake Nasser just to the south.
Hurghada and the surrounding area, particularly
El Gouna. Not to far apart are El Gouna, Hurghada and Safaga, and
these areas contain just about everything a tourist would like to
have, with the exception of ancient monuments. They make up for
that with every variety of water sports, several golf courses, casinos
and more. The Red Sea area has less of an Egyptian feel, but not
as European as the Sinai.
3. Sharm El Sheikh
Sharm El Sheikh, and the surrounding area including
Sharks Bay. This is the Sinai super-site, again with most everything
any tourist might wish.
There are even some wonderful Christian monuments
nearby, and the water sports, as at Hurghada, are all inclusive.This
is not to say that there are many more tourist destinations, particularly
on the Red Sea and in Sinai, and on Egypt's mainland interior, the
However, in much of the rest of the mainland interior,
travel and destinations are limited. However, the tourist super-sites
encompass perhaps ninety-five percent of the ancient monuments,
and most else there is to do in Egypt.
