Qalyubia is finally getting its lustre back.

Qalyubia governorate

The Egyptian government is currently working on a range of  developments in Qalyubia to attract more tourists and return the governorate to its former glory, as it was once a spot where royals would vacation during the reign of Mohamed Ali. 

Director of the Nile Walkway Project, Talaat Sultan, added that the project is coming to fruition at the behest of president Abdel Fatah Al-Sisi. The walkway – which will have kiosks set up - will be available free of charge to all citizens after its completion which will be within eight months.Qalyubia governorateIn a joint collaboration with the ministers of antiquities and investment, the government will be working on development plans for Al-Qanater as well as an international museum estimated to cost EGP 2 billion.Qalyubia governorateMoreover,  Al-Qanater, Qalyubia’s governor is meant to be meeting up with a Chinese entity run by the chairman of the Chinese Businessmen Association on Wednesday, in an effort to encourage investment, according to a Qalyubia governorate official.
