Egypt tourism still struggling despite upswing: Industry insiders - Economy - Business - Ahram Online: Tourism to more 'cultural' destinations in Upper Egypt, however, has failed to pick up in the same manner.
Luxor, for example, the Upper Egyptian governorate famous for its ancient Egyptian heritage sights, has seen average hotel occupancy rates of only 20 percent, according to El-Zayat. Tourism activity in Aswan to the south, he added, was even weaker.
Only 30 out of approximately 280 floating hotels operating between Luxor and Aswan were currently active, El-Zayat elaborated.
