Is it safe to travel to hurghada, im thinking about booking over the easter holidays. Are there many tourists now?Many Thanks
even during the height of the revolution and the trouble (mostly in Cairo) the Red Sea resorts remained relatively calm. The British FCO even took the measure of excluding them from its travel warning about Egypt. of course it's even calmer now, so i expect you'll have no trouble at all (just keep one ear on the news just for safety's sake).
Tourism numbers were down significantly immediately after the revolution, tourism for the whole region is down because of the troubles. about 7 years ago
As most countries has dropped the travel ban to Egypt therefore tourism is resuming slowely but in Red Sea resorts the tourist numbers are quiet good and the occupancy rate is expected to reach more than 85 percent during Easter. As this region was away from all the troubles as Zaida said.
