Whether it's for business or leisure, Egypt is a must-visit country. 

The land of the Pharaohs has long been a popular choice for Hollywood celebrities to come and relax, as well as a stunning location for big production movies. 

Egypt has welcomed giants like Elizabeth Taylor and Frank Sinatra; up until this day, big names are still making their way to this one big museum of an Arab country.

We've complied a list of eight Hollywood celebrities who've visited Egypt in the past decade.
