According to Frederick Kunkle writing on April 19 in the Washington Post, the drop in tourism after the Revolution has hurt Egypt's economy.
"In February, tourism was off 80 percent compared with last year, and it was down 60 percent in March. That is a crippling blow for a sector that accounts for one of every seven Egyptian jobs and makes up about 11 percent of the nation's economy."
Egypt is perfectly safe now. There are so many opportunities for people to shop, and to view this land of amazing contrasts. Come see the New Egypt. Save Khan El Khalili.
