Egypts welcome tourists after revolt
Popular sights in Egypt opened again on Sunday, as Egypt’s tourist industry tries to recover after the revolution that toppled Hosni Mubarak. Some tourists are taking advantage of the opportunity to see Egypt’s sights without the usual crowds.
The tourism industry makes up about 10% of Egypt’s GDP, and the unrest has cost the industry an estimated 1 billion dollars.
