Any change?

Post by Scottishtourist »

Has any ex-pat/tourist/citizen in Luxor noticed any changes in security there in aftermath of Sinai plane disaster and events in Paris?
Have you noticed any additional military personnel on streets?Have you been aware of any more police(tourist or other?)

Has there been any increase in tourist numbers?On account of the fact that numbers of tourists visiting Sharm are in decline?
And..have any of your friends who normally visit now changed their minds about visiting Luxor/Egypt as a result of the recent attacks on Sharm/Paris?

I think as in every Country, security levels have been raised, its not just Europe, it's other Countries as well, protecting their citizens and heritage.

I can only speak for Hurghada where the security on the streets has always been quite high. I can't say I've noticed much difference. Airport security re passengers has definitely sharpened up going by my recent transit.

Visitor numbers are well down, largely as a result of no Russians flying in.

I'm aware of 3 separate families who cancelled their holiday to Hurghada, specifically quoting the Sinai crash as the reason and long before it was confirmed as a terror attack.
