No one knows that tourism industry is fragile and is affected directly what happens around it. The services and facilities are the country representative and its ambassador and if it is bad services tourism developing chances will be decreased. The opposite is right, if the services are developed, the results will be positive and the market will refer.

the case that I show that tourist and the Egyptian citizen safety, so feeling is a necessary thing and never accepts difference between who safety service is offered to whether at airports or by the hotels gates and others of the touristic areas that need to be safe… but what I saw, need to a solution, the Egyptian citizen in the airport differ particularly and generally about the other… one of the offers are easy service but the other faces difficulties and annoying… it seems a country different from another country, in addition the procedures that make the movement difficult in front of the airports when you enter, there are a crowed of cars and strong ring around each guest, questions and requests that we don’t find in any country of the world.

I’m a witness on two accidents happened with me and I’m working in the tourism sector, advertising for Egypt and go to the international exhibitions and have worked for four years in one of the countries that experts tourism to us, I have been to one of the biggest and the most ancient hotels in Aswan… when I entering the hotel, the security stopped me because I am not a guest in the hotel!

The second situation happened with announcer in the ”youth & sport” radio , when she tried to enter one of the hotel in Sharm El Shiekh … the security stopped her although she showed him her ID, she told him about her work and the reason of entrance was to meet the directors of the hotel!

Anther situation happened to me lately when I visited Luxor and read the report that made me happy because it is cancel ling of the land insurances in many areas and allow moving by land in any time.
I think that the reason who took that brave decision must to look askance in airport entrance of Sharm El Shiekh, Hurghada, Aswan and Luxor… hoping to get satisfaction of the tourist and the Egyptian citizen together.
