It's fairly safe and you will always find lots of people around smiling and offering to help.and if you want to study here The American University in Cairo is the most prestigious educational institute in all Egypt. It offers a variety of courses including Arabic and Middle Eastern Studies. English is the instruction language.

Hello,
I would not be to worried about traveling to Cairo. I was there myself last week and everything seamed very good. I did all the tourist attractions and I felt very safe. I would travel to Cairo just not be Naive think ahead and be on your guard just as you would if you traveled to any other large city in the world.
Cairo is one of the safest place on earth. However, if you are staying for a while. You'd better think well about the clothes you are going to take with you. Since cairo is Middle Eastern country and Egyptians are not used to women wearing clothes that show much skin. Thus if you avoid this point you will enjoy your visit as the Egyptians are really friendly and welcoming, you 'll feel as if you were in your second country.
Hi - Cairo is indeed a safe place. Take the same precautions you would elsewhere - that is look after your valuables and just be alert to your surroundings. In the street if you need help ask a woman if possible. Egyptian men can be flattering and persistent at times in their attention to Western women, but if you are friendly but not "familiar" and are prepared to be firm when necessary you should not have any problems. Mind you, I married an Egyptian man :-)

Do take care with your clothing - it will be ferociously hot over summer and you will be tempted to wear very little, but you will be best served by wearing cotton or linen and long skirt or pants and three quarter or long sleeves.

You will see a large police presence and plenty of security around, Egypt works hard to make its people and tourists safe,the latest incident seems to have been unconnected with any major organisation and a small protest.

I do hope that you enjoy your stay, Cairo is a fascinating city with a lot to offer and if you get a chance you must also have a look at other great Egyptian destinations.

It is safe, i am traveling alone everywhere, I am also a female student, I visited a lot of countries in Latin America, which is worse then to go to Egypt. Do not go late by yourself, try to visit everything during the day, may be have a dinner somewhere near to your hotel. It is fine.

I went to Cairo last year for 6 weeks and I felt safe all the time in Nasr City, Downtown and Giza.

There's some other places where I don't feel too comfortable. Egyptians are very nice people.
look i think that the best thing thing is to ask someone visit Egypt and i am saying that it is very safe place not because i am living here but because i know many tourists and i see how they feel secure here in Egypt so you're welcome
