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.
The decline in traffic on TripAdvisor would be 36% on week 3 to 9 July, compared with that from June 25 to July 3. Clashes in Cairo are a strong deterrent. In less than a week the meta Egypt has collapsed, according to the statistics offered by the other sites of the international group. -33% in Germany, 20% in Britain, 35% in France, 28% in Spain and 13% in Russia.
In general, the bulletin issued at Saturday 27 July and currently in force traces the picture that the overall security situation remains extremely fluid. They are testing new demonstrations followed by incidents that have caused deaths and injuries which should continue to the bitter end in the coming days in the context of the protests that began on the occasion of the first anniversary of the election of President Morsi.
