What Next?

by pjnstuie

Hi-my husband and I will have approximately 3 days left over-after visiting Cairo, Alexandria and a Nile Cruise--ending at Aswan.
I keep reading "mixed" reviews about Hurghada and Sharm being very touristy.
We love the beach and need some ideas of where to go!
Thanks,
PJ

You didn't say when do you plan to visit .. in Autumn / winter Dahab may be a better option and less touristy .. Ras Sidr is also a good option .. if you are visiting in Summer then the beaches of Alexandria or Marsa Matrouh would be a good chioce .. all the best.

Hi!

I will be travelling to Egypt in December-January and I am planning to visit the White Desert as well, apart from the other places you mentioned. I am not sure about how the weather will be there in March but I think that you can search a bit more about it and if you like it, then go for it!

Happy travelling!

Travel Tips for Hurghada

Skip the Glass Bottom Boat...

by kenmerk

Since I was planning to go diving later in the week at Sharm el Sheikh, I passed on the chance to dive or snorkel here in Hurghada.

But I did want to see around the harbor and get a fish eye view of the town, so out on a glass bottom boat we go...

Don't bother, most of the coral out in the Harbor is pretty beat up with not much to see.... Also, the view thru the "window" was pretty pathetic...

Next time here I'll have to get out on a dive boat to try and get a more balanced assessment of what Hurghada looks like beneath the waves....

Electricity

by Saladinos

Toiletries & Medical Supplies:
Your only mediacal supplies would be pills for stomach problems and skin care and sun cremes. Medication is very cheap in Egypt but just get what you trust more. electricity in Egypt is a 220 volts so make sure not to use the 110. Get the transformer or buy it from Egypt (less than 30 US dollars).

One Stop Everything Shop

by Court94403 about HURGHADA STAR

Hurghada Star is a large souvenir shop, that kind of reminds me of a large discount store. It has all the gifts and souvenirs that the smaller shops in the area have. Hurghada Star is one of the largest shops on the Promenade. Hurghada Star sells T-shirts, sandals, leather wallets, Egyptian carvings, Shishas (Water pipes), children's clothing, scarves, souvenir cups and drinking glasses, luggage, post cards, candy, snacks, water, and sodas. This is probably the place to come if you can't find what you are looking for in the smaller shops. No Hassle so you will pay what is on the price tag.

taxi

by Aurorae

Taxi is extremely cheap in Egypt, for few punds it will take you anywhere! Be sure to bargain the price before you get into the cab, otherwise you'll be ripped off!
Sometimes bus vans can decide to operate as taxi, so make sure it doesn't have a TAXI tag on it if you want to take it as a bus. They will try to trick you into getting in pretending it's a bus, so you have to be attentive.

Moto saffari into the dessert

by nissem

The motor saffaris trough the dessert to a Beduin village was really nice. It was fun going on the fourwheeled motorcykles (beware that you have to have your head and face covered with something!) and the visit to the Beduin village was really interessting. It's impressive how they manage to survive in the dessert!
The trip ended with a beautiful sunset before heading back home. Everything was taped and you could by the film on VHS or VCD. The quality was not really good and some anoying music was put onto it but it's kind of fun to have anyway.
