4 Upcoming Luxury Hotels to Open in Cairo
Although the hospitality industry was hit hard during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been recovering strongly over the past few years. Despite the struggling economy, the Egyptian government is making great efforts to improve the investment climate in Egypt and promote tourism.
