hunghada

im going to hurghada December is it possible to go to luxor stay the night and come back the next afternoon as i don't think day trip is long enough to see everything and roughly how much would it cost

Re: hunghada

by hardeeblue

I wouldn't recommend to go alone by bus. This way you would have to arrange your own transfer and organise somewhere to stay. Until recently the buses went by convoy to Luxor for safety. I live in Hurghada, but would not travel alone to Luxor. There is companies that can take you for 2 days with everything included. One example is excursions4all.com.Look on the Hurghada excursion list and you will find it there for 115 sterling. You will be with a guide the whole time to give you information about the temples and the history of luxor. You will get the most out of your trip this way. Personally I don't know any other company that do the 2 day trip. Normally 1.
If you need any more info about Hurghada, please ask. Enjoy your stay.

Welcome to hurghada
it is better to finde a travel agent to get a prmission to travel to Luxor or to get a car with a permission to go to luxor because it is not allowed to travel on your own to Luxor for securisty and safty reasons

Re: hunghada

You need at least two days and one night to fully enjoy Luxor. I'd even spend two nights there if I were you, as being there at night is very nice, and Luxor is far more interesting than Hurghada and its half-naked tourists. As has been said before, a one-day trip to Luxor does not make sense.

Do not listen to the two touts on that forum that are trying to sell you their services. Going from Hurghada to Luxor is totally safe. The cheapest way is to take one of the public buses limking the two cities, or a taxi if you want a bit more luxury. Choose a nice hotel in Luxor from a guidebook, and once there you can go everywhere with a taxi or even on a bicycle.

Travel Tips for Hurghada

Emerald Red Sea

by Tanechka

First time in my life i tried snorkeling. I was deeply surprised by wariety
of underwater life . Trips to the coral islands are very cheap and if you are not so much
satisfied by your hotel beach , best decision is to pay 10$ and get a
paradise trip with dinner on a ship board.

what to pack

by LexiB

Swim suit
shorts
flip flops
summer dresses
khakis
sturdy shoes (if you plan on going on any excursions to Luxor)
hat (very important)

Although, it wasn't enforced, be sensitive to the culture and the dress code. I witnessed plenty of tourists (European) traipsing around the major sites in nothing more than bikini tops, mini-mini skirts, or Daisy Dukes shorts. . .and we're called "Ugly Americans"?? sunblock (the sun can be quite brutal in the summer)
imodium-AD (because you just might get the runs if you're not careful on what you eat) a disposable underwater camera was a great addition
plenty of film
camera batteries Camelbak hydration system. I can't tell you what a lifesaver this was. It beats lugging your water around in those cumbersome bottles when you can take that same bottle to fill up your Camelbak and sling it across your back. Yes, it is quite pricey, but it's money well spent. There are different sorts of bags that are sold; you can get the basic model or you can go all out and get one that looks like a rucksack but also holds your water resorvoir. believe it or not, PENCILS, they're great to give for baksheesh rather than money. I found it was very well recieved by the locals when I took their pictures. I brought 6 packs of pencils with me and was able to give most of them away.

People seem to be very sick here

by lotharlerch about Pharmacy, Apotheke, Apteka etc.

People living in Hurghada - both locals and tourists - seem to be very sick, at least if you look at the number of Pharmacies. About every third shop is one. They are the place to buy normal hygienic articles, you get much of that what you know from your home country. And I could read from many other VTers who built pages on Hurghada that they sell here very efficient medication to treat digestion upsets which might come from the food here. We were lucky, we got good food and never had any problem so we did not need these tablets.

What all the Pharmacies advertize - even larger than their own name - is Viagra. Four years ago in Cairo it were different mysterious things to help build up the muscles but this has obviously disappeared. Maybe this is the reason why they need Viagra now. It seems that you get the mysterious blue wonder here without a doctor's prescription - which is dangerous enough even if it might be close to the real thing but imagine it is not a placebo but a third world fake like the stuff sold via the web.... But I am sure it helps to them who believe in it....

I just wonder what the Egyptians are doing with all the Viagra - it seems that there are almost no local women living in Hurghada... Viagra fakes ????????

convoy

by TomorrowsAngel

The Egyptian government doesn't allow foreigners to cross the wide desert between Luxor and Hurghada without a convoy.
For security reasons, and fear of terrorism, this road is highly guarded. The convoys are secured and escorted by the submachine gun toting police.
Our group had to be at a certain place by 0700, which was when the convoy left. The convoy was made up of at least 50 buses and 4WDs. Police blocked traffic intersections and crossroads the whole way to Hurghada which made the trip pretty speedy.

Under water life

by Saladinos

If you are in the red sea area so one of the main reasons beside looking at the sea from the beach should be trying to live and unite with the nature.
Snorkling is a perfect idea in addition to glass boats. You will get the chance to feel some of the most attractive creatures in life. The colourful fish.
