The on-going demonstrations in Egypt show no sign of abating.
Egypt is almost a year-round tourist destination, appealing to both the cheap and luxury ends of the travel industry. It’s also a warm destination when the weather here is at its direst.
The short term impact of these uprisings on tourism will be felt for a while but combined with the recent protests in Tunisia and Yemen, this means that the Middle East may end up being out of bounds for a little while longer still.
It’s difficult to predict where this is all leading but for now if you’re heading that way, make sure to check the Foreign and Commonwealth Office website when making your plans.
