Where to Go Now: Egypt Offers Tourism Incentives

April 5, 2011 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

The Oberoi, Sahl HasheeshJet to Egypt this spring and you could have the Pyramids all to yourself... While many travelers are avoiding North Africa and the Middle East because of political unrest, a now-peaceful Egypt is luring visitors with all kinds of special offers- including discounted hotel rooms and airfares. The Wall Street Journal reports that the country is also "offering airlines incentives to fly to the tourism-dependent North African country as it seeks to stimulate demand and stop carriers from slashing capacity."
