Hello. I am coming to Sharm next week from the U.K. and staying at Sea Club Aqua Park, Nabq bay. I have not yet arranged what I am going to do about getting my foreign currency. I have heard that I would probably get much better rates of exchange in Sharm itself rather than in the UK. Is this true? (Post office is currently offering exchange rate of 10.06)
Would I be better bringing UK Sterling and exchanging what I need in Sharm? If so are there plenty of bureau de change's around nabq bay?
Many thanks for any replies.

Hi, Ive just booked 10 days at the Sharm Grand Plaza with my Mum. Hoping to do some day trips, sightseeing, diving, dolphins, any suggestions or tips greatly appreciated
I have the chance to holiday in Sharm El Sheikh at the Verginia Sharm Resort from 10/10 for 7 days. (without Transfers due to this being a cancellation should I accept)
As it will be myself, I am concerned regarding the recent troubles.
The FCO in the Uk have "advise against all but essential travel, with the exception the Red Sea Resorts including those in the entire region of Sharm el Sheikh" with that said, I am under the impression that there has been recent troubles such as a car bomb near to the area. - Can you please advise if this is true?
I believe that the Holy Month of Ramadan starts during the time frame of the holiday.
As a British (non religious) man, is there any special requirements that I would need to observe?
Hi guys, Just wanted someone to confirm....there has been talk that there was a bomb explosion in Sharm yesterday/ today????
just wondering how busy the resort and this hotel is at the moment, we are due to arrive in sunny sharm on the 10/10/13

How much would I expect to pay for a guided diving trip ? (I do already have my padi but not dived for 10 yrs)
Is there a good snorkelling spot close to Sea Club Aqua Park ?
Is there any nightlife close to our hotel ?

Does anyone know what is the code of dress for St Catherines Monastory for women please?
I am travelling to Sharm in a couple of weeks with my friend and would be grateful of any information you could give me regarding the situation in the resorts at present.
I know a lot of tourists have been forced to pull out of their holiday due to their country's restrictions but as British women we are assured it is still safe to travel. I'm happy about this as I love Egypt and have visited many times in the past, I know the Egyptians will look after us :)
I am just wondering if the resorts are a bit empty at the moment. We both like company and a happy atmosphere, so are a bit concerned we wont have other people to spend time with :/
Also, I am a bit confused about tipping. Some people have mentioned that women shouldn't tip men as it is frowned upon and we certainly don't want to offend anyone. On the other hand it wouldn't feel right not to reward good service. I would love to hear your opinion. Also, as I have previously travelled with a man he has always sorted out the tipping .. how much should I give to someone who cleans our room to two weeks and should I tip before or after the holiday?
Hope you can help us, we are a bit confused to say the least.
we fly out on the 9th anf finally looking forward to going thanks to all the help from everyone on here will give feedback when we get
Arriving at Sharm tomorrow and really looking forward to it now. Just a quick message to say once we are back from our holiday I will post an update on our holiday and maybe ease any concerns people may still have although it's died down a lot over the past few weeks.
Also, if anybody is out there the same time as us, drop me a Private message and we can sort something out.
we are going to egypt next week and really confused about tipping and we cant get any small egyptian notes can we give pound coins
I'm looking to book a last minute holiday to sharm el sheikh. I understand it is safe from the uprising but have been told by friends that tourist excursions are cancelled.

Would appreciate if anyone can confirm as I don't want to book a holiday where I won't even be able to ride a camel!!!!
