I have been lucky enough to be invited to a friends Coptic wedding in Sohag on 1st Sept 2012. I am holidaying in Makadi Bay at the time. Would need to get transport for myself and 19 year old son then overnight accomodation. I am concerned about how secure this area is for us as a Mother and son and would like some information before I accept the invitation. Thanks

I cannot give any advice about Sohag. I would just ask whether you think your friend would have invited you if he/she thought that there was any danger in you attending?

Dont hesitate to go to Sohag! I was there last year and really enjoyed it! Its more relaxed then Luxor. I stayed at el Safa, it was very nice and not pricey
