What a great comment by the minister. I so agree with him. That is exactly the attitude I take at my own tourist accommodation. I don't try and be the cheapest but the best. I heard about a friend staying at a flat in Hurghada who was concerned about turning the air conditioning on as she had to pay extra. I include everything including free WiFi. I am certain that a better quality makes for better tourism and it seems the minister thinks exactly the same. Like the author I feel more optimistic about tourism in Egypt. How can we change the tourism map in Egypt? | Washington Times Communities: Egypt is perceived and sold as a cheap destination; I think it is very unfortunate result of bad planning, over supply of hotel capacity [in] some areas, Egypt deserves much more than this work to increase touristic services. We need to plan more carefully the touristic development, work on increasing the level of services. We should diversify our products; try to create a centre of excellence, a very high standard of services, commanding higher prices, raising the level of services all around it and contributing to change the perception of the world.
