Britons Still Seeking the Mysteries of the Pyramids, say


LONDON, February 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

- Over one million UK travellers visited Egypt in 2011, making Brits one of the highest tourist nationalities in the 'land of the pharaohs', say online travel company -

UK travellers continue to visit Egypt in their millions, along with Russians and Germans, indicating the resilience of the country's legendary tourism industry, say leading online travel agency,

According to Egypt's Tourism Authority, the UK remained a large source market of tourists in the country, due to its renowned hospitality, value for money and year-round sunshine. Other lures reported were the exotic desert and unique historical relics that have attracted travellers for decades.

The report illustrated that UK holidaymakers spent an average of 11.45 nights in Egypt in 2011, and forecasts suggest that numbers will continue to rise this year. This may be due in part to increased air capacity, with flights to Cairo and other Egyptian destinations becoming more accessible to overseas visitors.

Mark Attwell, MD of, explained, "We're pleased to see Egypt is still a favourite destination for UK travellers. Whether you are looking for flights to Luxor or Sharm el Sheikh, there continue to be many convenient flight times from a range of UK airports. The climate is comfortable throughout the seasons - no matter if travellers want to go in winter or summer - and so it's ideal for a beach or scuba getaway.

"We compare flight and holiday offers from seven nights upwards so holidaymakers can get the most out of visiting Egypt. There are plenty of natural resources on the Mediterranean and Red Sea coasts, and of course, ancient attractions like the pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx keep holidays to Egypt on a lot of people's bucket lists."
