Cheap Holidays to Hurghada in Egypt

Hurghada has been home to fishing communities for centuries and remained unchanged until the 1990’s when tourists discovered this idyllic village. With wide stretches of beaches along the coastline, sea waters that were relatively safe and great for watersports, the city was, and still is, ideal for tourism. Today, it is a busy, sprawling town divided into two main areas, the Old Town Ad-Dahar to the north, and Sigala to the south. Each affords a wide range of hotels and restaurants catering for all tastes and tourist attractions.

Hurghada, known locally as Ghardaga, has grown from a small fishing village to an internationally renowned holiday resort town on the Red Sea coast of Egypt, famous for its underwater life and diving and snorkelling opportunities. Popular as a European package holiday destination, the town of Hurghada boasts first class hotels and all-inclusive resorts, as well as a highly vaunted nightlife.

South of the town is the resort strip with hotels packed along a 12-mile (20km) stretch of beach, while within the town there are many bars, restaurants, shops and a variety of accommodation to suit all types of budget. The town's central location on Egypt's coast provides a gateway to prime diving sites throughout the Red Sea.

Like so many of the towns and cities of Egypt, Hurghada as well as Luxor and Marsa Alam are living history museums. These three cities are positioned as three corners of a triangle in the Eastern Desert with plenty to offer both together and separately.

There is plenty of choice when dining out in Hurghada, Luxor or Marsa Alam. Restaurants that feature international cuisine such as Italian, French and Chinese can be found everythwere. If you want to experience a true Egyptian experience you should try koshari, a local dish made from pasta and tomatoes, or dishes such as hummus or fuul made from mashed beans. If you are unsure, try a meze (selection) of different dishes.

In this historical environment you can easily find a nice café and just sit and relax. Enjoy a nice cup of coffee and maybe a delicious Egyptian sweet.

Most lounges and bars are located within a hotel. There are many lovely places to sit down in the warm evening air and enjoy a nice, cooling drink.

If going clubbing until early morning is what you are looking for, Marsa Alam might not be the place. You can ask at your hotel for more information.

Without doubt, it is the bazaars that offer the widest selection of local crafts and artefacts, while designer goods can be found in the larger stores. But to experience the true shopping experience in Luxor, as well as Hurghada and Marsa Alam, head for the bazaars along the coast roads. Here, traditional souvenirs like copper ware, brasses, rugs and carpets, crafts such as glass vases and little perfume bottles, leatherwear such as belts and sandals, and handmade jewellery can be found, along with masses of colourful textiles. Most bazaars will have stalls selling herbs and spices like cloves, saffron and turmeric, which give them their characteristic aroma.
