Mubasher: Cairo was chosen among the best places in the world for this year by Time Magazine in a list highlighting top touristic destinations.

Egypt’s capital was picked on the World’s Greatest Places 2021 list due to its “new vantages on unique treasures,” with Time Magazine pointing to the highly anticipated opening of the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM), the largest archaeological museum in the world.

The magazine also mentioned the Ahl Misr Walkway along the Nile Corniche, which will provide a pedestrian-friendly outdoor space to check out the majestic river, as well as a number of hotels and other projects that will attract future travellers to Cairo.

The list of 100 extraordinary destinations to explore also included other major cities such as Athens, Berlin, Cannes, Las Vegas, Madrid, and others.
