    Hard Rock Cafe: Heavy publicity

    We live in a fun world!

    The most expensive t-shirt that we found in Sharm-el-Sheikh was the one advertising this bar.

    Why?
    Why would we pay more than for the same shirt with no commercial references?
    Shouldn't it be the opposite?
    Shouldn't they make a discount to the customer that, back home, accepts to keep advertising their business?

    We didn't buy. Of Course!

    Nameless shops: Small street shops

    Though too modern to hold a typical souk, we may find in Naama Bay a few areas where commerce follows the local standards and traditions. A few narrow streets in the modern construction of the touristy city, have some small shops and stalls, where the flavour of Muslim way of trading. Browsing those dark and narrow streets is a relaxing contrast to the organized and kitsch display in the touristy avenues.

    Na'ama Shopping: In the Centre

    by solopes Written Dec 11, 2013
    2 more images

    Right in the centre of the lively area of town, this shipping was a mandatory visit each night to the females of our group.

    We followed them, and could notice that it has a clean and organized view, with well presented shops, but I don't know how do the prices behave, in comparison with the small shops around it.

    Il Mercatto: Big Mall

    Il Mercatto - Hadaba

    A big shopping mall in Hadaba was in our way to and from the beach, but, too hot during day time, and a little bit out of the way at night, we only visited it once and quickly. Well, it has all that you may expect, and the ladies had fun trying several exhotic cosmetics.

    What to buy: The usual crafts

    Large shopping mall primarily to part tourists from thier money. All the big name stores to be found here in a mock Italian setting.
    Stumbled across the place walking home from the beach one afternoon, and while not spending much cash, it's not an unpleasant place, no hassle from sellers here and did have a reasonably priced beer!

    Duty Free Shop: For cheap spirits...

    by Classic73 Updated Jan 18, 2011

    Hendricks Gin is by far my favorite brand of gin, and it just so happens that they sell this spirit at the duty free shop i Naama Bay. At a measly 19 $ even, which obviously compares quite favorably with the 46 $ they charge at the airport (and back home in Denmark)!!!

    Don't think twice, and remember to buy within 48 hours of arriving in Sharm! :)

    Drinkies: Another alcohol shop

    by mr.small Updated Sep 25, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is an off licence or beer and wine shop if you are not from the uk and the thing that is special about this one is that they deliver,mainly for free.They may only deliver in the Hadaba,Om el sid,old town side of Sharm though I do not know this for sure.There is now a Drinkies in Naama bay,at the end of the main pedestrian street,at the side/rear of the Movenpick hotel (opposite end to the Naama centre).Drinkies got a refurb in sept 10 and now stocks a lot more wine,mostly egyptian but a fair few from abroard as well.

    What to buy: The local Stella at 7.5LE for 500ml(4.5%abv) and Sakara gold LE7.5 for 500ml(4%ABV) are two of the highlights/lowlights,but whilst out there in Aug 06 we came across a new champion by ABV beer,the Sakara King,10%,blimey. They now stock a bigger range of alco pops,all locally made,10% I.D. edge being the pick.They also do wine and now do spirits,local stuff only but pretty cheap.

    Beyond Limits: Dive gear in naama bay/old market

    by mr.small Updated Sep 25, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Beyond Limits

    For a town that is such a mecca for diving it was surprisingly empty of proper dive gear shops.Everywhere sells the cheap mask and snorkel sets but if you want a shop with a wide variety of top gear then this is the best one we found.

    What to pay: We found that BCDs,computors and regs where about the same as in the UK,suits where more expensive and masks and fins where cheap.

    Me shopping in Naama bay

    Again this is not a review on one shop its various shops in an area for good shopping. We went shopping in naama bay 4 or 5 times through out the holiday in the day and the night. Its the biggest shopping area we went to on our stay. There are shops selling pretty much everything. Also plenty of bars, food resturants on the trip around. The place seems to come to life after dark though.

    What to buy: Food, Drink, Clothes, Jellewery, Shoes, Gifts, Pictures, Art , Models

    What to pay: Good price but remember to haggle with them

    This review is not for one shop but various shops within one area. Its North Dahab area. We visited after snorkelling at the blue hole. We had a full afternoon in this area where we went round with a tour guide. There was many different shops within this area.

    What to buy: You can buy clothes, shoes, glasses, fruit, food, drink, gifts, smoking pipes etc etc. There is pretty much every thing here.

    What to pay: It was cheaper than naama bay area for items like clothes, gifts etc.

    San Peter (shop 60): Best gift shop in Naama Bay

    by clueless83 Written Jul 24, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    View of Hard Rock and Naama Bay from Naama Center

    In Naama Bay you WILL get pestered by everyone offering you everything from taxis to "free" gifts to sand sculptures. I am recommending this shop because the store owner will not bug you.

    We went into the shopping centre (Naama Center?) in Naama Bay (close to Hard Rock) and wandered about. I wanted to buy a fridge magnet and when we were escaping one of the pesky sand art people we found a shop which had magnets hanging in the door frame (it was behind some rug sellers too if you wish to find it).

    Anyway the guy approached us and told us all magnets were just 10L.E. and left us to it. He made a point of saying it was like shopping at home. I asked the price of some photo albums but in the end I just bought the magnet. Being a girl, once we leave the shop and lose ourselves in the maze of the shopping centre I decide that actually I do want the photo album. We head back and the guy waves at us as we walk past. We went in and he gave me a discount on the photo album plus another fridge magnet as a free gift! He also gave me his business card which was very useful because then I can write this tip. Thanks Osama!

    What to buy: There are lots of trinkets and gift type things here. This is the place to go for a Sharm el sheikh souvenir.

    What to pay: Magnets were 10 L.E. (£1 UK sterling)
    Photo album was only about 50 L.E. but I got a discount ;-)

    What not to Buy: Snorkeling Gear in Sharm

    by om_212 Updated Jul 16, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: I was not sure where to put this tip, but since it is connected with the shopping experience, it put it here. and I would call it "what not to buy" :)

    it's better to bring your own snorkeling gear to Egypt rather than to buy it in Sharm. first of all the price would not necessarily be cheaper, second you might end up with a pretty disappointing quality. my friends bought 2 pairs of fins, while in Sharm, and one of them cracked after the first swim. it was a hassle to return it to a vendor. he simply refused to return money. after a while, he has finally agreed to exchange them for two T-shirts, a total rip off, taking into account that a pair of fins cost $20.

    so I would definitely advise to invest in your own equipment, especially if one is into snorkeling.
