Egyptian antiquities officials have decided to re-open the tombs of Queen Nefertari in the Valley of the Queens and King Seti I in the Valley of the Kings, both of which have been closed for several years.

The tombs in Luxor will re-open in a month's time, and tickets will cost EGP 1,000 (approx. $113).The number of visitors is to be limited to around 100 to 150 people a day.

“This decision was taken in an attempt to attract more tourists to the valleys and Luxor after the decline of tourism that hit Egypt following the January [2011] revolution,” Minister of Antiquities Khaled El-Enany told Ahram Online.

Both tombs had been closed for restoration, required by the increase in humidity caused by visitors.

El-Enany also said that, at a Wednesday meeting of the Supreme Council of Antiquities which he chairs, it was decided that the ministry would be provided with more funds, as it is suffering financially due to the lack of tourism.

It was also decided that the rents of cafeterias and bookshops at museums and archaeological sites would be reduced.

“This decision would enable all shops and cafeterias owners to reopen them after five years of closing,” El-Enany said, adding that in the aftermath of the revolution the owners of these shops were not able to pay the rent and they had to close their enterprises.

The chairman board also approved a 75 percent reduction on all books published by the ministry, in order to increase archaeological awareness among Egyptians.

During the month of Ramadan, the Textile Museum in Al-Muizz Street in medieval Cairo is to be open at night.

Welja, gooi je topstukken maar meteen te grabbel voor anderhalve habbekrats *16 *16

Ik hoop dat egyptologen hiertegen verzet aantekenen, maar ik vrees dat zij dat (logisch, want anders kunnen ze hun reizen naar Egypte verder wel vergeten) niet zullen doen *19 Echt een idiote beslissing dit, zulke mooie tombes opengooien in de ijdele hoop op meer toeristen. Nog steeds lijken ze zich niet te realiseren dat de toeristen niet komen omdat het er a) gewelddadig en b) niet erg toerisme-vriendelijk is. Kap liever met dat ....-geloof van jullie, zou ik zeggen. Zet heel wat meer zoden aan de dijk *17

Het idee dat er straks van die halfdronken, totaal ongeïnteresseerde Britten en Russen enkel en alleen voor selfies die graven ingaan (om dan vervolgens te gaan rondbazuinen dat ze het graf van "Cleopatra" hebben bezocht) maakt me verdrietig en boos. Hoe kan Egypte zo kortzichtig zijn?! *16 *16
