    Is it safe to go on Holiday In Egypt?

    Would it be safe to go to Egypt these days and stay there for a couple of days? I have heard this on news that these days the place isn't safe to go. Why is this so and when would it be safe to travel ?

    It isn't safe because the military is trying to maintain control of the country, and the people are fighting back. There is also the issue of radical Islamic elements invading the political structure. So there is bombing, there is shooting, and there is a lot of violent tension. I wouldn't go there - but keep an eye out and in a year or two see about going.

    As much as I'd love to visit Egypt again, I wouldn't go anywhere near it until the political turmoil is over. It's easy to become a victim in such a mess, and there is no way you'd enjoy your stay there. things will settle down sooner or later, but it is safer to wait and follow the news.

    I'd love to visit the pyramids, but it's very unsafe to visit that area right now. I have a friend who's husband is military and they were supposed to stay there for awhile but after a week they were sent to Washington state instead.

    Don't go. Certain countries have actually pulled started pulling their citizens out already, so depending on where you live you might not even be able to get a flight.

    Re: Is it safe to go on Holiday In Egypt?

    Definitely agree with everyone. While I've heard it's a great place to visit with some fantastic things to see, right now it'd be a really bad idea to go. I think the US even evacuated their embassy a couple months ago? Usually when a country is going through a huge unrest like that, it's very unpleasant for tourists anyways, or people from other countries. On top of that, all the unrest and demonstrations don't seem to be over yet, so you never know when it's going to blow up even more. It could all get far, far worse, and you wouldn't want to be there when that was happening. There's a lot going on. Egypt has declared a state of emergency, there's a mandatory curfew in effect in many major cities, and there's been some deaths. So over all, it's should definitely be avoided at this time.

    I've been to Egypt many many years back when things were calm and peaceful. Now is really not the best time to even consider a visit. The political scenario is too unstable at present and isn't safe for Egyptian citizens let alone tourists. Le things cool down...then you can make your plans.

    I believe that things will calm down. Give them some time to recover. I think even the most violent demonstrators will realize that tourism is one the biggest sources of income for the country and if they keep scaring away the tourists, then they just don't get any money. That's it.

    This is a very valid point. First they just need to figure out who should be in charge of the country, then they can get back to taking money from tourists.

    The most violent demonstrators have never seen a single, red dime from tourism and as such isn't going to care. You have to remember that things when to pot because the difference between rich and poor was so flipping vast. The rich lived in mansions and the poor built cities/homes/lives from the trash of the rich. So yeah... tourism isn't going to matter much until basic rights and such are dealt with.

    Yes, If Foreign Office says it's safe otherwise it's too dangerous.
    Egypt’s popular tourist resorts are currently deemed safe to travel by the FCO and so carriers and tour operators will continue to take bookings as normal and apply normal booking conditions to those holidays and flights in case of cancellation. The FCO has not changed its advice around travel following the recent knife attack in a Hurghada hotel on January 8, 2016.

    No place is safe in general. But if you have planned your journey and stay carefully then there is nothing to be scared of. Egypt is a beautiful country and you can go there with your whole family. I will give you detailed road map of Egypt.

    Well, I have been to Egypt recently. You gonna love that place. But if you are serious about the safety. Then I would say you have to go for a travel agency. I have also worried about the safety then an online friend recommended me a tour agency called ask-Aladdin. Their service is really good. You can try it or there are many other tour agencies on google. They will help you travel with safety.

    Re: Is it safe to go on Holiday In Egypt?

    Egypt has been trying to rebuild its tourism industry after last year's widespread unrest ended the long rule of Hosni Murbarak's military dictatorship and is currently under a similar style Presient Sisi military dictatorship, and therefore nothing much has changed in Egypt. It is the same as it was 10 or 20 years ago. Egypt has not changed much really since the revolution as it has gone full circle back to military dictatorship.In general, Egypt is a safe country to travel. Egyptians are very friendly - if you are in need of assistance they will generally try to help you as much as they are able, more than any one can imagine.
