Egypt is a transcontinental country located in North Africa extending into Asia due to it holding the Sinai Peninsula.

Egypt shares its borders with Israel and the Gaza Strip to the north-east, Sudan to the south, and Libya to the west.

The country is also surrounded by the Mediterranean and Red Seas and the gorgeous Nile river isn’t only a tourist attraction: it is an important economic factor for Egypt as well as its fertile well-watered valley.

If you’re planning on visiting Egypt, you already know that it is the cradle of the ancient Egyptian civilization.

You can enrich your Egyptian experience by visiting its temples, hieroglyphs, mummies, and pyramids.

Its capital Cairo offers a unique view into the original Egyptian feel with landmarks like Muhammad Ali Mosque and the Egyptian Museum.

This country keeps surprising tourists and travelers by offering them much more than they expected which is why it is still one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.

So... How Safe Is Egypt Really?

Egypt is generally safe to visit.

You might have problems with petty crime and scams, but that’s the extent of crime in this country.

Pickpockets definitely are a problem in Egypt’s major cities, especially in Cairo.

When it comes to violent crime, it is rare, and you shouldn’t worry too much about being mugged or robbed.

If you do end up in such a situation, don’t hesitate to yell “Harami” (which means criminal) and chasing the person who robbed you.

People on the streets will probably jump to your aid.

However, the biggest problems in Egypt are scams.

Scams are virtually everywhere around you in Egypt.

You will cross paths with Egyptians who starts a conversation with you in Cairo and Luxor, wanting to befriend you and show you around and then asking money for their services.

Basically, whatever the locals tell you, take it with a grain of salt.

And if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is

The biggest concern for the travelers is terrorism that has recently been occurring in this country.

However, you shouldn’t panic or delay your trip to Egypt as the odds of actually being affected by terrorism or low, and the areas that might be a reason for skepticism are backed up with extra security.

You can also see police officers armed with AK-47s patrolling and riding on camels in the Giza plateau, ensuring safety to tourists that come to see the crown of Egypt.
