    • Royal holiday resort and Sharm El Sheikh

      Egypt Aug 26, 2015 at 10:25 AM

      Hi,

      My boyfriend and I (aged 20) are thinking of visiting Sharm El Sheikh in October, staying at the Royal Holiday resort.

      Before we book this, I have a few queries:

      1. Is it safe? I've seen a few postings on here regarding safety and just want a little bit of reassurance on the level of security. I'd hoped to also visit places such as the pyramids and my boyfriend would like go on quads/buggys in the desert, is visiting these sorts of places safe?
      2. Has anyone visited this hotel that can offer us a review or give us any tips?
      3. Does anyone have any recommendations for places to visit, restaurants, things to do during the day etc, this is only our second holiday abroad and I want to be as prepared as possible.
      4. Any other general tips would be welcomed.

      Thanks in advance,

      Jane

      Airport to Giza using bus then metro, how to?

      Cairo Aug 19, 2015 at 9:02 AM

      I have all day in Cairo and was wanting to take the metro to Giza then back into downtown but I'm uncertain about which metro station is nearest the airport. I assume a bus would run to that metro station or I could take a taxi to the metro if need be.

      If this sounds like a bad plan feel free to tell me :)

    • Travelling to Dahab in October

      Egypt Aug 6, 2015 at 1:27 AM

      Hi there everyone,

      I asked this in another thread but lost it so i through i would ask again. I am travelling to Dahab in October to go scuba diving. I arrive late at night (very late) and my hotel has organised to collect myself and my friend a from Sharm airport. When i am going home, my flight is very last again. I am quite apprehensive about travelling at night from Sharm to Dahab and well a bit worried over all about going as there are many FOC warnings about the region. I was hoping to get some honest advise on whether the holiday is a good idea. I really want to go because ive heard some amazing things about Dahab, the people there and the scuba diving but again im just a bit worried about the situation there. Can anyone help me? has anyone been there recently and can advise me on what its like at the moment? I'd really appreciate some help :)

      Thanks so much!

    • Solo female traveller

      Hurghada Aug 1, 2015 at 2:37 PM

      I am travelling to Hurghada alone in 6 weeks time. I guess it was a sort of spur of the moment booking, but now I cant wait! I have been to egypt 5 times already, butthis is my first time travelling abroad alone, and I really want to experience more of the real egypt. . I've done nightlife, sitting by the pool in a resort, swimming with dolphins, go karting, watersports, I've even had a tattoo done across there. But I want to see the stars in the middle of the desert at night, I want to see dolphins in the sea where they belong.... Basically, i'm only staying a week this time round, I'm not on a huge budget so any trips involving flying are out the window this time around.This is more of a test the waters trip to see how i go travelling alone, but i'd like to squeeze in some adventures, just wondering if it's safe to do it alone as a 28 year old scottish female. I plan to only book through tour guides going in groups, I wont be out wandering anywhere alone, I'm quite a sociable person I dont intend to spend a week in silence hiding away.There are so many scaremongers out there, and I've already been told a million times how "dangerous" egypt is, but from past experience there, its nowhere near as bad as people think as long as you are sensible and careful. Anyway, If any of you lovely people can suggest some fun, must do/ must see/reasonably priced adventures I can squeeze into my trip, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance :)

      hello I am travelling to Hurghada soon, will be staying for 2 weeks with wife and son.
      could anyone give me a rough idea of spending money needed?
      we are staying all inclusive but will not remain in the hotel for the full 2 weeks.
      Also I understand that we can only take £5000 LE each in to the country so guessing the country is relatively cheap.

      thanks for your time.

    • Avoiding hassle.

      Sharm El Sheikh Jul 29, 2015 at 10:55 AM

      Hi, I came to Sharm for the first time a year and a half ago. Myself and my family went for a walk in the evening we were constantly hassled then my daughter fell a man from a perfume shop offered to help us. To cut a long story short he locked the door and was pointing to my husband's wallet for money and trying to sell us different products. In the end I had to get quite angry with him and demanded he let us out I gave hime $2 for his help for my daughter if he opened the door. Last visit at Easter my children didn't want to leave the hotel because of this. I'm coming in September with my husband for our second honeymoon we would like to explore a little we are in the Hadaba area. Any advice how not feel harassed all the time?

      Has anyone recently returned from Egypt ? Do people feel safe ? Due to go at end of July with husband and 3 children aged 8 and under. Not feeling like I will be relaxing on the beach! How are people feeling there. Am I over reacting. Yes I know we have no control over these things but booked in jan and too close to change. Regardless of how the holiday goes I won't be booking holidays in that region of the world again unless there is a sudden change which I can not foresee.

      Hi me and my girlfriend are in Sharm for the first time in mid October. Not going to ask the usual clichéd questions about the safety as we have already read plenty on this. Would like to know what to expect weather wise? I don't like to trust Internet averages or travel agent statistics would rather find out direct from people who experience it regularly. What can we expect temperature wise and sun strength? I love the sun but my partner has to be a lot more cautious due to her skin type. Any info would be great.

      Is Sharm safe (concerns after Tunisia attack)

      Sharm El Sheikh Jun 29, 2015 at 1:00 PM

      Hi, I am travelling to Sharm in 3 weeks with friends and our young children. We are staying at the Coral Sea Aqua resort and have been excited for some time. We are slightly concerned following Fridays horrible attack in Tunisia and are looking for some assurance that the area is safe. I understand that the hotel in Tunisia had a private beach and was frequently used by British tourists so although its is many miles away, is not dissimilar. I would never put my family at risk at any cost so hoping someone could assure us as to the safety measure of the hotel and resort.
