Time Magazine, in its annual classification, added Cairo to its list of the top 100 exceptional destinations in the world for 2021.
A number of major cities were on the list including Athens, Berlin, Cannes, Las Vegas, and Madrid.
Cairo was selected, according to the magazine, due to the recent construction of the Grand Egyptian Museum, which will be inaugurated soon, as well as the “Ahl Masr” (People of Egypt) Walk on the Nile Corniche and a number of high-level hospitality hotels.
Time Magazine’s list is based on nominations from the magazine’s correspondents from around the world, with a focus on cities that offer new and exciting experiences.
This is the third year that the magazine has prepared a list of the best places in the world, in honor of the tourism and travel industry makers who, under exceptional circumstances, were able to adapt, build and innovate, in addition to highlighting creativity, revitalization and promotion of destinations around the world.
