Jump to last reply

For those planning to travel to Egypt

-Be aware of the protesters they are every where may be except in Sharm El-Sheik

-Be aware of the harassment especially for females egypt is the worst among Arab countries and one of the top worst 5 worldwide

-Be aware of the food and water there are increasing complain about this issue particularly Salmonella ,Typhoid and Paratyphoid

-Be aware of the police they killed over 7 tourists and arrest over 10 tourist and hundreds of those possess the foreign passport . I was there and saw the increase hate for Americans and British on the other hand we Germans don't have the same problem .

-Be aware of some places as Cairo , North Sinai , Alex and Luxur . The situation there is still bad but it get better also no one know when it will explode again .

-Do not believe the Egyptian government speakers just follow your own country roles and FCO

-There are increasing numbers in beggars they are pain in the ass .

- On other hand as a Journalist I follow the situation in Egypt from 2008 know is not the ideal time to visit this great nation it maybe better next summer but for those who are going any way and those who have to go . Just follow the advice above and you will be OK . I have written my own experience

- Have a good summer



This is the translation an German Journalist who travel every week to different country . I agree with all the points .
