    Sheraton Street: The most famous street in Hurghada

    by HebaM Written Sep 1, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sheraton Street is one of the most famous streets in Hurghada. When I asked the receptionist at my hotel where to go for souvenirs shopping he recommended Sheraton Street! There you can find all kinds of Bazaars and unlike Khan El Khalili in Cairo street vendors and shops owners are not pushy and back then it wasn't crowded. I enjoyed shopping there, The ambiance of the street is cool and safe! it's easy to get there by Minibus or Taxi.
    There where lots of fast food joints but didn't feel like eating junk food!

    YES! There's Macdonald's

    by Lobinha Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although perfumes shops in Hurghada are thousand this one is a special!!! For sure you will ask what makes this one so special? The answere is easy- pure, natural, without any mix Essences- the heart of the perfumes. Once you try you will buy all :). The first time I visit shop I new that egiptian hospitality and pleasure from chatting with tourist are like a national trasure but I have to be cearfull and spend all my money. After a magic hour I new everything about perfumes, aloe vera mask ( great for sun burn) and I also gained a knowledge about tradition, I was invited for family dinner and much more. Since that time if I can I buy perfumes only at that shop, for my family, friends and myself. The perfumes are that great cause they are nothing but pure essence- the note of head, heart and soul :) You should try!!!
    The owner Bob Ali and the rest of the team:Hisham, Ahmed, Mohamed, Walid

    What to buy: In the offer are silver, coral and other stones jewellery and as my number one -perfumes. If you preffer the eou de toilet, guys will teach you how to make it. One more thing ! You have to ask for the beautifull, hand made bottles and with a little bit of good luck they will give you one for free :)

    What to pay: Of course as a tradition you have to bargain a little :) but compering to other shops ( a specialy the ones that are in the hotels) the prices are not expensive. The originall smell for sure you will have for less than the one from Paris ! Dont worry if you have no money on you, they will give you and wait for the money.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can find many souvenir shops at the Airport, it´s packed with stuff. BUT It´s really really expensive and they will not bargain (lower their prices) so It´s buy it or leave it. Remember this, don´t buy the souvenirs at the airport you will pay the double then in Hurghada.

    What to pay: To much......

    HURGHADA STAR: One Stop Everything Shop

    by Court94403 Written Nov 11, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    What to buy: 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.

    What to pay: No Hassle so you will pay what is on the price tag.

    Pharmacy, Apotheke, Apteka etc.: People seem to be very sick here

    by lotharlerch Updated Jul 25, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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...

    What to buy: Viagra fakes

    What to pay: ????????

    Valid for all shops: General shopping hints

    by lotharlerch Updated Jul 25, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Egypt is clearly NOT a shopping paradise. As soon as you are walking anywhere where shops are crowds of touts will try to talk to you in every language they suspect it might be yours. The best is just to ignore everything and pass the shops as fast as you can and enter a shop only if you are 250 % sure that you want to buy a clearly defined item. You will hear an absolute utopic price for it. Make your offer about 50 to 80 % below that what you are willing to pay. Ignore every tea or something what might be offered to you and just discuss about the price. If you dont get your item for that what you are ready to pay just leave the shop - there are more than enough others. And if you leave the place and even Egypt without having bought anything - dont worry, you did not miss anything. Maybe the only thing you might really need to buy is a bottle of a drink. Be sure to pay a multiple for it compared to that what locals pay.

    It does not help too much if you go to any sorts supermarket where you pick the items yourself from the shelf and put it into the basket - at the end they will sum up fantastic prices. It is a good idea to learn the Arabic figures to be able at least to read the price if there is any written. They will be shocked that you can read it and maybe argue that it is the price of last week/month/year and they only forgot to change the label...

    And if you are asked where you are from just dont answer the right. It might be best to say that you are Romanian because the Romanians are known here to have not much money and are rather unwilling to pay the high prices.... Maybe you hear then: I make a good price for you, Dracula, you are my friend...

    What to buy: Sparkling mineral water in bottles with unbroken seal.

    What to pay: always too much, whatever you pay.

    by Court94403 Updated Jul 23, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is one of the classiest shops in Hurghada, located on the on the Promenade at the strip of resort hotels. This shop is more like a one-of-a-kind art gallery. The items here are from all over Egypt and beyond. Morgana Gallery is more than just an average gift shop. The owner, Mr. Mohamed Abd Elgawad is an honest and kind man. He has has regular clients that come in from all over the world when on holiday in Hurghada. Shoppers come in to check out his new and everchanging high-quality inventory. This gallery is not a hard sell shop you may find in the market. The staff is friendly and courteous. Everytime I stop by here I always have to make extra room in my suitcase for the items that I buy. If you are ever in Hurghada, stop in.

    What to buy: Wooden carvings, wall hangings and lamps. My favorite gift to buy is the wooden giraffe carvings

    What to pay: 15-30 USD and up but well worth it! (or you may be able to bargain)

    Shop assistants are storytellers

    by betako3 Written Aug 26, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Shop owners are such story-tellers! They will tell you anything just to keep you entertained so that you actually buy something in their shop. I remember my first shopping in Hurghada. It was a parfume shop, and we entered not because we wanted to but because at that time we didn't quite know how to refuse. We thought we would just have a look round and leave, but the owner seated us on that incredibly comfortable sofa and started to spin yarn; he was talking about the parfumes, letting us smell and test them on our skin; he asked us questions, about our names, our country, our impressions of Egypt; then he would serve tea and start talking about himself, and our eyes opened wider and wider as he talked abour his wives, his travels, his university diplomas, etc. We were spellbound, we actually believed every single word. The guy won our hearts. And of course we did buy some parfume. It was only after a few stories like this that doubts began to set in. We started to take everything in with a grain of salt but still found it hard to distinguish between a story and the truth.
