NIGHT LIFE:

NIGHT LIFE In the space of a few short years, Hurghada has gone from being solely a diver's destination to the teeming hub of the Red Sea's nightlife. Even world-class resorts can't hold a candle to the sheer variety of entertainment on offer here, from Sekala's late-night clubs like Ministry of Sound and the Hard Rock Cafe to pleasant pubs and pool bars that might be your local on a very hot day! There's also plenty of barbecues and shacks on the beach, plus trendy cocktail bars from which to chill by the turquoise waters of the Red Sea and relax. For a bite, head into downtown El Dahar, the Old Town, for some international cuisine that is a testament to Egypt's cosmopolitan life. Alternatively you could spend the night out in El Gouna and spend the night cruising the shops and cafes.

Eating out:

Eating out Eating out is inexpensive you will pay about  £5.00 a head with a drink. A big mac meal from £2.00 and a top restaurant like Hard Rock Cafe will set you back around £10.00 with drinks. El Joker Sek

Landscape :

Landscape Hurghada's jaw dropping seascape includes twenty miles of beachfront paradise abutting the turquoise Red Sea, from where you can cruise out to the islands offshore for some of the usual diving and swimming, or trek inland on safari; around the breathtaking desert mountains and canyons by car or camel, or on foot. A walk up Anfish Mountain is perfect for sunset panoramas of this amazing region, the city below you dwarfed by the blue expanse of sea and sky beyond.

Culture Vultures:

Culture Vultures Aside from a possible safari trip to Bedouin villages in the area, to see how these desert tribes-people knead bread and ride horses and camels, you can also get to grips with suburban life, especially in El Dahar, home to bazaars and jewellery stands in it's bustling streets. Stop at the street stalls also to sample some local delicacies of seafood and fruit confections, and roam through the lively roads by minibus. Surely the best time to catch some local partying is in February, for the fortnight-long mayhem of the International Festival with street gatherings, carnivals and marathons
