Hi there

I can't help with recent info, but can say that I have always felt safe in Sharm. Sharm hasn't had the problems that Cairo and Luxor have had as it's just a tourist resort. You don't stay where you are staying, or whether you intend to do any trips? The hotels have good security.

I would say that it will be very hot, you will need to take the necessary precautions with a 2 year old. Please read the Tips at the top of the messages and the questions in blue down the right hand side, most of what you will need to know for your trip is there

We've just returned from a fortnight in Sharm and I can assure you, there's NOTHING to worry about.... well not from a security point of view anyway, some irritating traders alright but it's completely safe.
