Tourism Appears to Be Peaking With Endless Celebrities Visiting Egypt

It’s been a rough few years but it seems that Egypt’s tourism is getting back on track. There was a time, not so long ago, where foreigners were concerned to visit due to security issues. Thankfully, those days are long gone and an endless stream of celebrities are proudly, and safely, sharing selfies while celebrating our historical sites.

From international actors and musicians to athletes and travel bloggers, Egypt is the perfect destination for anyone seeking some sun and culture. We’ve recently had two artists; Solomun and Red Hot Chilli Peppers, rock Egypt’s stages. Mike Tyson is apparently co-filming with Amr Saad, and Game of Throne’s biggest warrior, The Mountain, was just spotted in Cairo, amongst many others.

While most celebs share Great Pyramids selfies, Egypt has some of the best beaches across the region. Hopefully, the Mediterranean and the Red Sea venues will get equal global attention.

Here are some of our favorite celebrities in Egypt who left us fangirling:
