Hello fellow travelers –
My husband and I are considering visiting Egypt in March from the United States. We’ve always been fascinated by the rich ancient historty of the country and we would like to visit before the hot weather months. We have never been to Egypt. How safe is Egypt to Westerners? We checked the State Department travel warnings and it looks like Cairo and touristic areas by the Red Sea are mostly safe but extra caution is strongly advised.
Also, would you recommend staying in a downtown hotel or near the Pyramids? What difference does it make?
Thanks a lot!
