Holidays in Egypt | Red Sea collapses the interest of travelers

The Foreign Ministry yesterday published the latest update on the situation in Egypt, in the meantime TripAdvisor certifies the declining interest of European travelers, even for destinations and resorts lying on the Red Sea, not directly involved in the riots. We advise against travel to the country to destinations outside the resorts located in the tourist resorts of the Red Sea, namely Sharm el Sheikh, Marsa Alam, Berenice and Hurgada, and in those of the north coast like Mathrou Marsa and El Alamein where there is no immediate record of critical elements although because of the continuous evolution of the events cannot be excluded the demonstration projects related to the situation of general instability in the country. This was written also recommending excursions outside the villages, especially in North Sinai.
