We are honored to have been chosen as the Ministry of Tourism that has contributed the most to the global travel and tourism industry over the last 24 months. The award represents another year of strong growth for #Egypt’s tourism sector reinforcing its role as a driver of economic growth and job creation. The overarching objective of E—TRP is to have at least one individual from every Egyptian household work directly or indirectly in the tourism sector. We have demonstrated that setting policy frameworks is not a theoretical approach but actually executable, as tourism revenues accelerated reaching an all-time high in 2018/2019. It is also a testament to the efforts done by the Ministry of Tourism to contribute to the global tourism industry, with #Egypt taken as an example for resilience and the ability to reinvent itself. Tourism plays a major role in global economic activity, generating 10% of GDP and providing 1 out of 10 jobs worldwide. Since I took office in Jan 2018, we have been working relentlessly with global partners for development such as the @UNWTO, @wtandtc, WTO and ITC to create awareness on the importance of tourism, strengthening and realizing the potential of Egypt’s tourism, and maximizing contribution of the sector on Egypt’s economic welfare. Once again, Congratulations #Egypt. @WTMLondon مبروك لوزارة السياحة المصرية حصولها على جائزة الريادة الدولية للساهمة الفعالة في صناعة السياحة عالميا من بورصة لندن الدولية للسياحة 2019 ، للجهود التي قامت بها الوزارة على مدار الـ 24 شهرًا الماضية، لتحقيق عامًا آخر من النمو القوي لقطاع السياحة في مصر وصياغة وتنفيذ برنامج الإصلاح الهيكلي لتطوير قطاع السياحة.

Participants had to answer questions like whether or not they felt safe walking alone at night or if they ever got mugged or assaulted, and so based on their answers, the report proved that Egypt is indeed one of the safest countries.

Your Ultimate Honeymoon Guide to The Maldives PT I

Published

on

By

If Maldives is your honeymoon destination then congrats for you have picked one of the best and most dreamy places in the world! The Maldives have everything a couple look for in a honeymoon, from its white-sand beaches to the blue skies and mesmerizing turquoise waters.

But where do you even begin planning such a trip? Where to stay and where to go? Well, this is what this guide was made for and that is to guide you through everything you need to know for the perfect honeymoon.

Visa

Egyptians don’t need a visa for Maldives! Yes, you heard that right. You can obtain your visa on arrival for a stay up to 30 days, which can also be extended. Applicants must show evidence of return transportation and a hotel accommodation plus a sufficient amount of money.

When to travel

The Maldives is sunny all year round but the best time to visit is between November and April. The high season is between December and March and the monsoon runs from May to October. Stick to the dry season because during rainy days, there won’t be much activities to do, so it’s certainly worth the higher price.

Flight

Male International Airport is the Maldives‘ main international airport. It is located on Hulhule Island in the North Male Atoll, near the capital island Male.

The flight ticket is a bit pricey but keep in mind the heavenly destination that you’re heading for, prices of tickets during the season might start at 30K.

Getting to your resort

Transfers from the airport to your resort island are either by a domestic flight, a seaplane or a boat which are all pretty cool. It depends mainly on the distance, make sure to resolve this before traveling because if your destination requires a seaplane, they only operate in daylight hours. So if you arrive after sunset, you will have to spend the night in Male.

Don’t panic though and remember that the seaplane trip is an experience itself as you get to enjoy stunning views, so make sure you get a window seat!

Activities

The Maldives are a tropical heaven and are ideal for the couple looking to enjoy quality and alone time by the beach. There are lots of water sports that you can enjoy, the underwater life there is truly fascinating and thus is known to be a driver’s dream come true.

Most resorts will have quite the busy entertainment program for you but there are no sightseeing included, so if you’re not looking forward to staying all day by the beach and spending your days snorkeling and diving, then you should probably rethink having the Maldives as your honeymoon destination.
