Cairo, March 31, 2009
LINK Development in association with Microsoft Egypt, has launched a portal on Luxor.
The first official city portal in Egypt (www.luxoregypt.org), is endorsed by the government in Egypt and offers Egyptian, Arab and international visitors to Luxor an array of benefits.
At a click of a button, Luxor lovers will be able to read about the history of this historic Egyptian city, which sits on the banks of the River Nile.
They can also explore the many official directories available which will guide them through sites, monuments, temples and valleys, helping them plan their trip and to experience the marvels of the world’s first and largest open air museum.
'Trying to capture the magnificent history of the Pharoes in Luxor and what the town offers its modern visitors 7,000 years later, has been a fantastic journey for the LINK Development team and one that will attract additional interest and more tourists to the area,' stated Hanan Abdel-Meguid, chief of LINK Development.
'The fact that the city of Luxor houses one third of the world’s archeological treasures makes such a project even more important and valued for me and my team,' she added.
The portal allows visitors to search full official directories of the city’s activities; sound and light shows and timings, organisers and packages, leisure information and sight-seeing, local transportation, shopping areas and markets, travel agencies, hospitals, banks and ATM machines, emergency numbers, etc.
'The site reflects the magnificence of the city and the variety of activities available to its visitors,' added Karim Ramadan, Microsoft Egypt general manager.
Luxor is known to have been a premier tourist destination at the time of the last Dynasties and attracting visitors during the Greek and Roman periods, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
