      Hi Queeny,
      I have spent a lot of time in Egypt and I have mixed emotions at the safety. Generally if you stay on the tourist trail it is fine. However, there will be a lot of men staring at you when you travel Egypt as a solo female. I have heard reports of groping. Do some research, read some blogs and if you feel uncomfortable, maybe join a tour. It depends on how you like to travel.

      I went last July, it was stinking hot!!! However I had no real troubles. I did stick to the tourist areas though. It might be worth doing that until you feel comfortable. Have a great trip 🙂
