A recent online survey of 1,000 British photographers has named the Pyramids of Egypt as their favourite landmark in the world. The survey, which was commissioned by digital photo printing service, Truprint, asked the respondents to identify the most appealing international landmark from a list of ten popular monuments from around the world, including Big Ben, and the Statue of Liberty.20% of those questioned named Egypt’s most famous attractions as their favourite. While these results may come as a surprise to some people, industry insiders believe that these findings reflect the enduring appeal of Egypt holidays.

Ian Raine of online holiday firm says: “The Pyramids in Egypt are one of the Seven Wonders of the World, so it’s no wonder that they’ve scored so well. They also beat a number of other recognisable world sites to the top spot, such as Big Ben, which received 17% of the vote, and the Eiffel Tower, which scored 15% of the vote.”

The Pyramids, and other associated attractions, such as the Valley of the Kings, are just two of the reasons that thousands of holidaymakers book all-inclusive Egypt holidays every year. These important archaeological sites provide tourists with the opportunity to explore and learn more about the ancient Egyptians.

Raine continues: “Egypt enables tourists to really get lost in one of the most interesting and mysterious chapters of human history. This survey reflects the endearing quality of the Pyramids compared to some of the more modern landmarks on the list, such as the Sydney Opera House, which can be challenge to photograph. By comparison, the Pyramids offer keen photographers the chance to take a great shot while enjoying the many other delights that are available on cheap holidays to Egypt.”
