WAITING FOR TOURISTS- PHOTO OF THE WEEK

The political upheaval over the last five years has reduced tourism in Egypt, but the crash  of the Russian plane over the Sinai a few month ago, resulting in  travel bans by Russia and the UK  has brought Egypt’s tourism to a collapse which stretches from the Pyramids to the beaches in Sharm El-Sheikh.

Maybe we should not let the news media scare us, because if you ever want to see Egypt without having to compete with other tourists  – the time is now – and you will have this man all to yourself – think about it!
More from Egypt soon

    Hopefully things will get better soon.

  3. You make a valid point, but – as someone who also lives in and loves Egypt – I feel it isn’t easy to advise potential visitors. “Safety” and “security” are loaded terms and one person’s perceived high risk is another person’s exciting “frisson”. Until today I would have agreed with you about the sadly empty tourist sites – the National Museum in Tahrir is now the place to go for long, leisurely views of its treasures undisturbed by tourists. But then, down in Midan El-Hussein this afternoon, we found the place thronged with Egyptians, especially from Upper Egypt, in town to celebrate the mulid (festival) of Hussein. The atmosphere was totally amazing!
