The Situation in Egypt: Is it safe to travel to Egypt?
Many tourists are now wondering whether holiday in Egypt is dangerous. They are afraid of visiting this country, because it is considered a no-go destination. In addition, the authorities of Egypt are going to prolong the state of emergency for three months. It is true that there are still areas, where the situation remains rather tense. However, the resorts, located on the shores of the Mediterranean and the Red Sea, are far from riots and demonstrations, so it is safe enough to have a holiday there.
Those who like to study foreign countries independently should remember that it is dangerous to travel alone in Egypt (not in the tour group). At the present time, it is also extremely undesirable to go on guided tours organized by local residents; there is a great chance to get into serious trouble.
