    • Moulid Abu El-Haggag

      Luxor May 4, 2015 at 1:54 PM

      I'll be in Luxor the first week in June (hot!) and came across some information about the Moulid of Abu El-Haggag. I understand that it's a huge celebration and, if I'm counting back from Ramadan correctly, it should occur about June 4. Does anyone know if that's correct? And is it something that I want to reconfigure my travel plans to Dendera and Abydos to see? Thanks

    • Egypt 2015 trip concerns

      Hurghada Apr 30, 2015 at 2:30 AM

      Hello! Me and my boyfriend are planning to go on holiday to Hurghada in June 2015 but I’m a bit concerned about whether this is the best time to go to Egypt specially because we also want to visit the pyramids in Cairo. We are thinking of joining an excursion from Hurghada to Cairo by bus and according to what I read it’s 7 hours distance and I am a bit scared of what could happen during the journey.
      Anyone who have been recently to Hurghada and Cairo can tell me if it is safe to visit? Did you witness the downsides of the political distress and protests?
      Also, provided that we do go to Egypt in 2015 do you recommend buying activity packs from UK agencies or by contacting the local ones?
      Many Thanks!

      Meeting locals

      Kawm ad Dahab Jun 29, 2011 at 3:30 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.

      Christmas time with children

      Kawm ad Dahab May 12, 2009 at 5:55 AM

      I am planing my christmas holiday and am thinking about going to Dahab with my 15 and 8 y.o. sons.
      We like to swim and snorkel, eating seafood and pizza, playing soccer on the beach, do some shopping.
      Do you think that Dahab will be the place for us to spend christmas and new years days with out daddy.
      We are used to travel solo in Nicaragua and South America. I made the pady open water in swiss lakes and haven’t been diving for 10 years, perhap will try it again.
      Do you know a small hotel, bed and breakfast on the beach, near the town center, that is children friendly, with a small swimming pool? We would also like to make the one or other excursion to the desert, not specially with camels, but perhaps overnight stay in the desert, or will december be to chilly?

      Thanks for your help

    • No Smoking in Dahab??

      Kawm ad Dahab Feb 21, 2009 at 6:05 AM

      Here's an interesting (and, for us, important) question!

      We're spending about a week in Dahab end March/early April with bed & breakfast at a small hotel in the Assalah area.

      We're both non-smokers and as a mild asthma sufferer, my wife finds cigarette smoke particularly unpleasant.

      Anyone know any Non-Smoking restaurants nearby? Presumably at this time of year the evening temperature will be too cool to eat out-of-doors?

      Help, please, for two difficult travellers!
