Old Town Sharm Tips (8)

Old market

I enjoyed the visit to the "old market" though clearly understanding that "old" means not so new as the rest. The ambiance gets closer to what we should expect in that area of the world, and commerce more diverse.
The kitsch use of a natural hill deeply transformed helps to enhance that ambiance, and the animation was interesting.
We don't imagine the dust that it is permanently in the air, until the night, when we decide to use flash...

Sharm old market

Funny name for a place built since 40 years only in Egypt of 7000 years history, but this is true as Sharm El Sheikh is a newly built city artificial in land but very old underwater and desert treasures, as it was just a little fishing village, but since 1967 it started growing till now became biggest touristic city due to the diving activity and many other tourism activities around
Old market is the biggest commercial area in Sharm El Sheikh, where you find from DG clothes to 1 Euro Cotton T shirt, original Breitling Cockpit 9K Watch or same one fake for 30 Euros jewelers, souvenir shops, Papyrus shops , perfumery, "real herbs" shop.vegetable shops, pharmacies herb shops, clothes shops, bazars, fresh fish shops

Old town Sharm.

Go to old town Sharm and get your bargains. You'll find most things here alot cheaper than in naama bay and taste the locals side of Sharm. You can get a blue cab from naama bay for about 3-4 quid. Make sure you agree fare before you get in cab, and make sure you agree that it's the price for the car full, not per person as the cab drivers can be funny and try to pull a fast one on you. When in old town you'll be in the market area, and the locals can be a bit more pushy than in naama bay, but are ok and don't overstep the mark. Get in the spirit of the local side of life and haggle to get a good bargain. I'd alwys say that you should pay abput half to 2 thirds the starting price. If you don't get it at that price remember, there are plenty more shops and stools to go into. Plus when you walk away and they think no sail, they'll probably chase you and let you have it at your asking price anyway. Fantastic cultural day out.

Old Sharm

Have a look around here, you can get a taxi here easily for very about 10 LE. Its nothing like Naama Bay so be warned , but its definately worth a go.Its where all the workers lie and a more "traditional "side of Egypt. There are lots and lots of bazaars and restaurants here, and some great street vendors selling filafel mmmm. Here you will find excellent value ( not luxury) restaurants that serve an abundance of food at just a few LE.

Old Sharm

This is an old caravan passage, its more than 2000 years old, and some of the buildings are about 1000 yers old, it is well worth a visit, it is a bit cheaper here, but take care! the locals are a bit more rough here.
On the pic You can se the shop for animals - to eat - it is evening and the pic is not what it should be, but....
They kill the animals on the street and the blood floats in the gutter -Uurrkk!
