Luxor to Receive New Electric Vehicles for Tourists Along West Bank

The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities aims to integrate sustainable tourism practices in hopes of maintaining the environmental integrity of archaeological sites.

The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities aims to integrate sustainable tourism practices in hopes of maintaining the environmental integrity of archaeological sites. This marks the first in a total of 30 sites included in the project’s first stage.
