Cairo Named Among Top Travel Destinations For 2020

Amazing news! Cairo has been named as one of the <a href=”https://www.lonelyplanet.com/best-in-travel/cities” target=”_new”>top cities to travel to in 2020</a> by Lonely Planet, one of the largest travel guide book publishers in the world. Cairo ranked THIRD, right after Salzburg, Austria and Washington DC, USA. Describing Cairo, the Lonely Planet wrote: Egypt waved Tutankhamun’s treasures off on a globetrotting tour in 2018, declaring it the last time the pharaoh’s burial-booty would leave its shores. Want to gawk at ancient Egypt’s wealth in the future? You’ll need to visit Cairo’s Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM). The year 2020 is set to be the date – inshallah (God willing) – this state-of-the-art museum in Giza throws open its doors. Head here to marvel at a mind-boggling collection in what will be the world’s largest museum entirely committed to one civilisation. For Red Sea and Luxor holidaymakers, a Pyramids and GEM add-on will also become a doddle with Giza’s newly inaugurated Sphinx Airport set to operate domestic flights.
