Egypt Tourism (#208H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

In 2011, there was the Arab Spring, a revolution in Egypt that was quickly followed by the Arab Winter. Travel and tourism flatlined in the country. CBS News Travel Editor Peter Greenberg explains how this impacted Egypt and, more importantly, how does that impact you as travelers? Plus, Peter reveals his hidden gems of Baja California, with an insider's look at experiences in Mexico no one knows about, from wine, to cheese, to horseback riding. None of which is in the brochures! And, Travel Weekly Editor In Chief Arnie Weissman introduces us to some alternatives to staying in hotels. They include parked jumbo jets converted into overnight accommodations, abandoned missile silos, and a building crane suspended 500 feet in the air!
