Although radical Salafi Muslim groups have called for a ban on skimpy swimwear and alcoholic beverages, Hisham Zaazou is hoping that people will return to the region for a vacation in the near future.
“Bikinis are welcome in Egypt and booze is still being served,” the tourism minister explained at the United Arab Emirates.
That’s right. Just when you thought Egypt couldn’t rank any higher on your vacation bucket list, the whack-jobs running the asylum have bowed to the pleas of the tourism industry and bikinis will be allowed at hotel pools. And, as a kicker, it’s your choice of the alcohol you’d like to be doused with at your public square burning for wearing your Allah-offensive skin exposing swimwear. Book now before the high season when hotel rates in Cairo can go up as much as thirty-seven cents.
