Travel to Egypt getting back on track – without the crowds | Washington Times Communities
Travel to Egypt getting back on track – without the crowds | Washington Times Communities: Travel to Egypt may be a bit more adventurous these days but for those willing to buck the trends, it may be the best time ever to see some of civilization’s oldest and most stunning relics. Gone are the lines to get into the dazzling tombs of Karnak at Luxor. Quiet are the sands at the Sphinx and Pyramids at Giza just outside of Cairo. Peaceful are the resorts along the Nile and coastal Red Sea where upgrades are easy and there are plenty of lounge chairs at the pool. Tourism to Egypt is as eternal as the obelisks that honor the Pharaohs. All that’s missing right now are the crowds.
