Egypt is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world. However, it has recently become unsafe for tourists. In 2015, Egypt has been all over the news, especially in the summer. There’s a high threat of kidnapping and terrorism, albeit many tourist areas are rather safe. When visiting Egypt, keep an eye and be very careful. Stay away from large crowds and any kind of demonstrations. The crime rate is generally low. Anyway, when travelling alone, you should take extra care.
