Generally Egypt is a safe place to travel. Not nearly as bad as it used to be.

You will however experience a lot of “salesmen” trying to sell you something or some sort of service. A lot of them will try and befriend you and then later try and get some money out of you.

In general Egypt is very well equip for travelers. They have the tourist police that is always willing to help.

For ladies they might find some of the men bothersome, but just simply ignore them and move on.

  • What with recent events in Egypt, I’d check the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s website for advice on safety in particular areas:

  • Take the foreign office advice with a pinch of salt and a dose of common sense though, as they can be highly overreactive. Egypt is a very safe place to travel to. I was there during the actual uprising a few years ago, and I felt very safe then too, you know why? Because I didn’t wander into the very small part of the very large city where the protests were taking place!

    Although this article is about the recent protests in Bangkok, the advice is still very relevant to any country, including Egypt

    Also look here for some general advice on keeping yourself safe

    I hope it eases some of your worries.
