Week with the boys!!

by Jizjames

Is sharm / naam bay a good place to go with a group of lads? Just looking for a good week away!!! Cheers

Re: Week with the boys!!

It would be helpful for us to know what 'a good week away with the lads' means for you.

If you want sun and water activities, then yes Sharm might be good.

If you want loads of alcohol and 'interesting' nightclub activity then maybe not.

Re: Week with the boys!!

by Jizjames

Well a bit of both, but mainly the the nightclubs and other interesting activities!!

Hi Brouce here I am new on this forum and looking a good place to group visit. Thanks for your sharing your suggestion.:)

If it's nightclubs and 'interesting' activities you want then I suspect Sharm might not be the best place. I've not been there although I have been to Egypt. You are much less likely to find such 'interesting' activities in countries where the sale of alcohol is strictly regulated and ...erm....public-but-paid-for human behaviour is also regulated. Same with e.g. Tunisia.

If you are seeking heavy alcohol-fuelled evenings with lots of 'activities' involving ladies then I would advise you to look elsewhere.

Commodes of the Deep...

by kenmerk

Ive seen many things under water, but anytime you jump in the water, you invariably run across new sights. And my first visit to the Red Sea was no exception.

what was it, Hammerheads ? Whale Sharks ? Giant Octopus ? No, no, no... Twas a debris field of toilets apparently dumped by a ill-fated vesel some years ago on the south side of Ras Mohhmmed National Park...

While the wreck itself has since tumbled off the ledge into the briny abyss, the killing field of toilets remain to remind of all of its misfortune...

Save the corals' world!

by pikuu

Once again I put here picture of the coral. This is only small example of the very rich family of shapes, colors, forms, sizes. For me corals are ready to use decorations for Sci-Fi movies or fantasy stories. It is a very very big loss that - cos of people's activities - everyear the corals' populationa are smaller, and smaller, and smaller...

Tipping in Sharm

by mtcowgirl

There is one word that sums up tipping in Egypt "Baksheesh"!!! Don't leave your hotel without some small change to leave as a tip. If you use porters, parking attendants, the doorman hails you a taxi, use a public toilet you will want to have some small bills as tipping is customary in Egypt.

Tipping is at your discretion but the Ultimate Sharm Guide (available for sale at various locations for around 40LE) suggests the following tips:

Restaurants 10-12%
Parking Attendant LE1-2
Maid/Bellboy LE5-10
Doorman LE2-5
Ushers LE1-5
Bathroom Attendans LE1-2

The minimum tip if given is at least 1LE. Anything below that is a bit of an insult.

Remember tipping tour guides is at your discretion but if you have a good tour guide it is worth it to give a small tip!

Snorkelling

by Kaysta

Once you look into the beautiful red sea, it will be an automatic urge to want to snorkel or dive. You see so many people do it and the dive boats can be seen dotted around the sea. It is one of the best places to dive in the world...I'd reseach the fishes that you can see in the Red Sea before you go, make aware of the fishes to avoid such as the 'Lion Fish'. Plus it is fun to see a fish that you know the name of!

I have never snorkeled before, but i took the plunge and got addicted! It was amazing what you could see under the sea! Although the sea is crystal clear and you could see the fish from standing on a jetty...you get to see the real beauty when you are in the sea.

It is an opportunity not to be missed... You can hire snokel equipment - usually by beaches or dive centres. I'd recommend you take your own snorkel for hygiene reasons! Make sure you take a mask that has a fitted nose piece as when i went i just took ordinary goggles and i couldn't stand the water going up my nose. If you are not too confident in the water, don't fear you can hire a life jacket at Naama Bay beach.
