On the occasion of the Egyptian National Day the Ambassador of the Arab Republic of Egypt and Mrs. Farahat hosted a reception at the World hotel Bel Air in The Hague. The National day of Egypt refers to Revolution Day, the Anniversary of the Egyptian Revolution of 1952 when the Free Officers Movement and Gamal Abdel Nasser undertook the militairy coup that led to the abdication of King Farouk. The reception was very well- attended and the guests could enjoy a wide variety of Egyptian delicacies. They also received a ‘goodie-bag,’ containing a typical Egyptian Scarab beetle and booklets containing extensive touristic information on Egypt. Egypt is a unique blend of timeless fascination and modern approaches to holiday making, which give it a very special place in the world of tourism.
