Travel Tips for Sharm El Sheikh

learn some arabic!

by johnnieaka2002

You should expect to be hassled to buy stuff anywhere in Egypt and Sharm is no exception even though it's nowhere near as bad as Cairo or Luxor. It's a really good idea to learn a bit of arabic to put off pushy salesmen as they'll think you're a bit more knowledgeable than the really 'green' tourist.

salaam = hello
la'a shockren = no thank you
fil mish mish! = in your dreams! (a good one to quote when you actually want to buy something but they're giving you a ridiculous starting price!)
kif halek = how are you.
don't be rude to salesmen they're just doing their job but don't get talked into buying something you don't want. be firm but polite is a good rule. don't get talked into going into someone's shop so they can write you out a business card or address of their family in england - it can get a bit embarrassing when you 'escape' when the realisation hits you that they're jus on the make. the people are lovely. Aside from the hard sell people are keen to talk to you and are generally very happy and hospitable people (even on an average wage of LE200 a month ($30) they manage to keep smiling). Our pool barman - Ahmed even took us out for a sheesha pipe and a coffee one night and fitted the bill for it. Top man! (He did make lots of tips off us mind you). Don't go over the top with tipping. Most places charge a 12% service charge. DO tip generously though when you get extra special service. Our house keeping guy - Essan was superb. We left him £10 english which was probably around 2 weeks wages. It felt nice and made his day.

PIcassofish - the nature freak

by pikuu

One of the most picturesque fishes I saw between Red Sea reefs. Eccentric shape with big - like women's - lips painted brillantly, colorful stripes on the head, eyes mounted on something like posts, small but very fast moving fins... This is really great artistic work of the evolution. Fish for neverending admiration:)

Shisha Pipe

by ratherton

The Shisha is a Middle East smoking tradition that began hundreds of years ago before the onslaught of cigarette companies.

The Shisha is known by different names in different countries. It is a pipe with a long, flexible stem. The smoke is cooled by being made to pass through water.

You can buy these all over the place in Sharm and there are plenty of outside cafes where you can try out first. Even our hotel had a tent where you could relax and smoke Shisha

Getting out into the desert.

by shizzler

You can book up excursions to go out into the desert, by camel, or quad biking etc. However you do it i recommend it as you'll get to meet the local Bedouin people and see how vast this great land is. Prepare to come back with as much dust and sand on you that you'd thought you'd have been stripping 1920's wall plaster down and refitting your house, but well worth it for the experience of a life time.
