The number one world destination for Russian tourists is…EGYPT!
At a time when Egypt needs every tourist and every investment dollar or ruble, that’s rare good news. The down side is–most Russian tourists stick to the Red Sea resorts, seeking sun, sea and sand, not history, archaeology, tour guides and souvenirs. So they bring in a lot less income than other tourists would–but…WHAT other tourists? The pyramids still look like this–tourist-lite.
