Cairo Named Most Stylish Destination by Chinese Travel Agency

Following a marked increase in Chinese tourists visiting Egypt, Chinese tourism giant, Ctrip says Egypt is their most stylish destination.

After the tourism drought that plagued Egypt in the wake of the two revolutions and the downing of a Russian airliner, tourists are starting to return, slowly but surely. While the Russians, who made up a large percentage of the tourists that visited Egypt in the past are still absent pending security issues, the Chinese have started to visit and they love what they see.

Al Masry Al Youm reports that Chinese travel company, Ctrip, have rated Cairo as their most stylish destination, which could explain the rise in Chinese travellers. China’s top public travel agency, China International Travel Service, reported a 58 percent increase in tourists flying to Egypt and spending the night compared with 2015.

Chinese tourists’ favourite spots in Egypt are the historical sites, with an increase of Chinese visitors noted in Cairo, Luxor, and Aswan as opposed to Mubarak’s time when Sinai and the Red Sea were the popular destinations for tourists.

There has been a noted increase in the number of Chinese, Japanese, and Ukrainian tourists coming to Egypt, with more of them coming to Egypt between October 2016 and January 2017 than the previous year altogether, according to Egyptian Federation of Tourism chief Karim Mohsen.
