I’ve just got back from a week in Sharm el Sheikh, it was fantastic. We decided that we didn’t want to travel to Giza or the Valley of the Kings as we wanted to chill out. We stayed at the Hilton Sharks Bay hotel which was good but it was the excusions that made it great.
Ras Mohammand National Park was breath taking, the coral dropped away up to 25 metres and we were surrounded by fish of all colours and sizes. Apparently its the 2nd best diving in the world after the Great Barrier Reef.
We also went (via camels) to a Bendouin camp in the desert at night where they talked about their culture, cooked us food and then invited us for a dance!
The best though was the Quad Biking through the desert, the scenery was magical.
The people were generally great, friendly and genuine. The odd person offered to buy my wife but other than that we had no problems.
I would highly recommend a visit, we are definately going to go back, probably on the west coast of the red sea so we can get easy access to the pyramids.over 6 years ago
