Holidaymakers are being urged to visit Egypt and be part of the positive aftermath of the recent revolution in the country.

The appeal comes from native Egyptians, particularly young people, who are suggesting that the revolution is "just one more reason to visit" and are urging holidaymakers to witness the happy state of "new Egypt" under new rulers.

The latest initiative to attract back lost tourism includes visits to Tahrir Square in the capital city of Cairo, where the main protests against the former regime took place.

Schoolchildren across Cairo have been painting buildings and tidying up areas in the city to welcome the fresh batch of tourists, according to a report in the Vancouver Sun.

However, it is urged that holidaymakers embarking on a trip to the region ensure they have comprehensible travel insurance so they can relax knowing they are covered for any eventuality.

The move aims to reignite people's desire to visit the legendary pyramids in the country, the River Nile, the Sphinx and the Valley of the Kings.
