A Pyramid of Positives: Egyptian Tourism is Back on Track Confirm Holiday Experts, DialAFlight

- Tourism is "Business as Usual" Comments Khaled Ramy from Egyptian Tourist Office

- Cameras Turn from Recent Revolution to the Newly Developed White Med Coastline

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - April 27, 2011) - What a year it has been for Egypt. Placed at the very epicentre of international news, it has been a whirlwind of political upheaval, instability and troubling stories. In the face of adversity, however, post-revolution Egypt has propelled itself into prosperity and become a haven for Middle Eastern tourism once again. Travel experts, DialAFlight, who offer a gateway to the Middle East – including flights to Dubai - are the best way to begin your Middle Eastern adventure.

Always at the forefront of international travel news, DialAFlight's YouTube Channel provides a fantastic source of travel information. In a recent interview with Peter Stephens, MD of DialAFlight, was Khaled Ramy from the Egyptian Tourist Office. In light of the political revolution in Egypt, Ramy squashed any concerns potential tourists may have about visiting the country. With so much culture ever-present in Egypt, there's no wonder that tourism never truly stopped. In March alone, there were 107,000 British holiday makers touring the sights and sounds of Egypt – a clear indication of the country's continuing popularity. Justifying Egypt's attractiveness with tourists, Ramy comments:

"We have the nearest Coral Sea to the UK, only 5 hours flying time...warm waters, even in winter we have sunshine all year round, value for money....state of the art resorts and you can do lots even outside the resorts – combining leisure with lots of culture."

In light of the recent political revolution, Ramy continues to explain how some of Egypt's tourist sites remained unaffected. The Red Sea resorts, for example, maintained their status as one of the world's most desirable coastal locations to visit whilst other popular areas of Egypt are now all back on tourism track. It really is "business as usual" notes Ramy in response to the rocketing resort sales for 2011.

Make Egypt your number one 2011 destination. A country so rich in culture, diversity and host to one of the wonders of the ancient world, there is no reason not to go. With flights to Egypt at great value all year round, it is difficult to pick an ideal visiting time of year. Described by Ramy as an "all year round destination" and with Ra the sun god out in force 10 months of the year, why not take a tour of Cairo and enter the pyramids, head down to Thebes to bask in the glory of the ancient Egyptian civilisation and then head to the White Med, 300km of pure white beach coastline? Politics may change, but the beauty and magnificence of Egypt will never subside.
