Travel | No booze, no bikinis for Egypt tourists? | Seattle Times Newspaper
CAIRO — Islamists are dominating Egypt’s elections and some of them have a new message for tourists: welcome, but no booze, bikinis or mixed bathing at beaches, please.
That vision of turning Egypt into a sin-free vacation spot could spell doom for a key pillar of the economy that has already been badly battered by this year’s political unrest.
I’m not sure if that’s exactly the best slogan for the next tourism campaign. Given that most people like to indulge a bit on vacation.
