    My advice is that you assess the situation and decide what level of risk is acceptable to you and your circumstances. Here are a few facts that might assist you in making that assessment.
    Even at the height of the revolution last year things remained calm at the Red Sea resorts. While Cairo "burned" they were still serving cocktails to the sun lounges on the beach at Sharm.
    In the current unrest Cairo (particularly Tahrir Square) Alexandria, Suez, Ismailia and Port Said are places where there's been trouble. Sharm' has not been mentioned in any news reports (that I've seen).
    Is it guaranteed to remain calm? No. Is it LIKELY to turn nasty? Also no.
    If you're worried, call your hotel and ask them for an honest assessment. If you're still not happy about going, ask them if you can re-schedule till another time when it is calmer.
    Hope that helps.

    Sharm El Sheikh has a hot desert climate. The area within 40 km of this station is covered by oceans and seas (83%) and lakes and rivers (17%). yes is it safe. In the night the weather is amazing. So you don't miss the chance to go there. almost 5 years ago

    Actually safety has never been a problem in Sharm El Sheikh. And Egypt is getting safer as the new government is doing everything they can to restore order.

    So don't worry and enjoy your trip:) almost 4 years ago
