Was just wondering if there is anyone on the ground in Luxor at the minute who can update with the current position and more importantly the general feel out there. We are due to fly out in mid September. Obviously, the travel companies are following current advice from the government so we understand there are no flights into Luxor at this time.
Are there any demonstrations there?
I believe the tourism industry in general in Egypt has been hit hard already this year. How stable does the tourism infrastructure appear ( are places starting to close down)?
We are hoping that if things remain reasonably calm in the provinces then the FCO will lift their 'essential travel only' advice for these areas, hence the request for an on the ground update.
Here's hoping the whole country manages the transition peacefully for everyone's sake out there. And from a selfish point of view, so I can have the holiday I have been planning for a year.
