      Gift ideas for my new Egyptian family

      Egypt Sep 13, 2015 at 1:53 PM

      Hello, I'm traveling to Cairo in a few weeks to visit my fiancé family. I have not met them before!!! I am already very nervous about meeting them so I really want to make a good impression. I know how important it is to get on with his mother so I want to bring a few gifts with me to break the ice. Whenever I ask my fiancé what to bring he just tells me "to bring yourself" and that is enough. Any ideas would be most appreciated especially from someone who has been through a similar situation or if any Egyptians can offer advice. Thanks!

      Meeting locals

      by succotash Online Now Jun 29, 2011 at 5:19 AM

      As previously independant travellers we've been seduced by a bargain flight/b&b at a resort hotel at the end of July.
      If the boys (15 & 13) want to escape the compound and take a bus into Dahab to find some lads for a kickabout, is there a piece of open ground where the sporty locals tend to hang out? Alternatively are there local housing areas within walking distance of the gates of the Hilton?
      Assuming they need to carry ID, I take it that a photocopy of their passport and a contact number of the hotel sufficient? Are there public phones on the streets if they have a problem and if so what change do they need to carry to use them?
      The boys only have a word or two of Arabic, but do they teach either English or French in schools here?
      Apologies for the jumbled myriad of queries and thanks in advance for any help you can give.

    • Sea Pioneer Dive Center - Dahab

      by rinoa Online Now May 16, 2009 at 4:52 AM


      After checking and exhcnaging emails back and forth with several dive centers based in Dahab, Sea Pioneer Dive center offered the cheapest prices. They were also very kind and replied positively to our personal request for the diving. So before deciding I wanted to ask if any of you knows this place? Is it as good as it looks? Any other recommendations? I all checked some popular centers such as penguen, fantasia etc but didnt like their options.

      Sinai Divers also offers a good price (35 euro per person for introductory dive), would you recommend this one?

      thanks in advance

    • Where to go in Gulf of Aquaba

      by spacecandi123 Online Now Oct 11, 2007 at 2:53 PM

      Hi I hope to travel to Sharm El Sheihk in a couple of weeks. Its a last minute trip and I haven't really got much of a clue what I'm doing so any advice would be really appreciated. My plan is to get there, spend a couple of days relaxing, learning to dive and hopefully some yoga. I'm flexible where I go but want to avoid any really touristy, over developed and degraded areas. I'll pop over to israel for a few days and then come back for more sea, sun and swim afterwards. I don;t really plan to do any major hiking around as I only have about 8 days there.

      Can anyone advise me on the best area to head for. I'm a woman travelling alone so somewhere relatively safe and welcoming would be good. Is dahab the best place on the coast?

      Does anyone know how long it takes to travel from Sharm airport to Dahab? and Dahab to Eilat? and finaly, is it a better idea to book accommodation in advance or search on arrival?

      I really hope someone out there has got some advice for me.

      Thanks for your help!

    • beaches in dahab

      by marina53 Online Now Mar 8, 2007 at 7:15 AM

      I am a very beach person, not interested in snorkling, because I cannot snorkle. I am planning a trip to the Read Sea area, and I would like to know if the beach in Dahab worths going there. It looks quite brown in the pictures! Is Sharm more beautifull? I hate package tours and it seems that this is the only option for Sharm. Could anybody advise?
