In the recent time the wave of terrorism overflowed the world touching even the most carefree corners of paradise. Unfortunately, during the last two years there were five terror attacks in Egyptian tourist destinations. They took place in Taba, Nuweiba, Cairo and Sharm El Sheikh. The bomb attacks in Sharm El Sheikh happened early on July 23rd 2005,when at least three bombs exploded at the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula, and on July 27th, when the car bomb went off at 11.00 am. The Hotel Gazala Gardens and the area close to the Iberostar Palace Hotel were badly damaged and completely screened off from vacationers. The presence of police in the streets increased, and a half of the holidaymakers fled the country, but then some of them returned back. In general, even right after bombing the usual holiday activities were going on and the locals and tourists were enjoying themselves as always.
Surely these events made lots of people hesitate about choosing the hotels in Sharm El Sheikh as their holiday destination. But many still encourage themselves to spend their long-waited vacation in the place of their dreams. After all, terror bomb attacks can happen almost everywhere in the world now. Do not let your fears ruin your stay in one of the most beautiful lands on the planet!
