As Brand Ambassador of Egypt, which are your favourite holiday destinations in Egypt?
Of course, Cairo is a truly remarkable city and the gateway to Egypt. I would certainly recommend exploring as much of the city as possible. I would also recommend Siwa Oasis. It is one of the most exotic places in the world. Geographically, it is breathtaking and its springs are renowned for their therapeutic properties.
With India emerging as a tremendous market, what is your view of a dedicated platform for the Indian traveller to Egypt such as the recently launched Namaste Egypt (www.namasteegypt.com)?
It is a wonderful concept. Egypt and India have many similarities. Both offer warm hospitality and have a rich blend of culture and cuisine. For the Indian traveller, Egypt provides the perfect backdrop for those seeking guaranteed year-round sunshine, value for money and the highest standards of accommodation and service. Indians would certainly feel at home in Egypt. The Egyptian tourism authorities should support such initiatives.
