Egypt's tourism numbers on the rise

According to Egypt's government statistical agency CAPMAS, the country received one million tourists in July, 8.3% more than the 936,000 it received the previous year, but still 300,000 less than in July 2010, largely as a result of the revolution early last year, Ahram has reported. Tourists came mainly from Western Europe, followed by Eastern Europe and then the Middle East, spending a total of 11.4 million nights in-country, 7.8% more than in July of last year and 10.6% less than in July 2010, the data showed.
