The city of Luxor, Egypt, wants to help up to 12,000 daily visitors to its temples, tombs, and other historical sites get the most out of their trip, while supporting its tourism industry by helping visitors find tour guides, hotels, restaurants, transportation, and other services. In 2012, the Egyptian Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) launched the Luxor Mobile Portal, powered by Windows Azure and designed specifically for smartphones running the Windows Phone 7 operating system. Now visitors can now use a single mobile application to take virtual tours of historical sites and locate services in Luxor, and MCIT has helped support one of the most important segments of the Luxor economy.

Egypt - 
For the people of post-revolutionary Egypt, life in this transitional time is typified by a mix of optimism and struggle. The tourism sector has been deeply compromised, taking a serious toll on the rural community, where Azhar Youssef, a teacher of 10 years, and others had been dependent on tourism for livelihood. In an attempt to coax tourism back to Egypt, Azhar engaged her students to launch a promotional effort, an expression of the joys of Egypt through presentations, video, and photography. To help her students to collaborate, Azhar supplied Microsoft Office software. Azhar worked with students to build a website and encouraged the student population at large to participate, promote, and share in the project titled Welcome Back to Egypt. The success of the project led it to be featured in 2011 at the annual Microsoft Partners in Learning Global Forum.
