Egypt apparently trying to combine more the "beach" and the "cultural" tourism:

"Marsa Alam incorporated into Luxor governorate in Upper Egypt" (Ahram Online, 21.08.2014)
Quote:
"... The governor said a new highway will be constructed between the two cities to connect Luxor's ancient temples with Marsa Alam's virgin beaches.

He added that the government is also studying the construction of a railway between the two cities.

"Integrating Marsa Alam into Luxor governorate will increase chances for Luxor touristic development and the number of sites visitors [can see]", said Eddine.

According to him, the aim of this step is to create a permanent integration between cultural tourism in Luxor and coastal tourism in Marsa Alam. ..."

Greetings, Lutz.
