Sharm el-Sheikh and Hurghada
Good morning, those who are going to work, and are quite good to those who decided to go to the nearest travel agency for a ticket. Today we will talk about the most popular winter holiday destination – Egypt, and about what the two most popular resorts differ from each other – Sharm El Sheikh and Hurghada.
Hurghada appeared on the shores of the Red Sea the very first, and hotels were originally clogged to the old fishing settlement. Until now, in the center of the resort, there are mainly 20-year-old hotels. They are not so comfortable, but it was already time to miss her greens, and moreover, in the evening you can go straight to the center of Hurghada, sit in the restaurant, dance on the disco and even go to the water park.
The farther from the center, the more contemporary and above the level of hotels, the more spacious territory.
In Hurghada, very little hotels located on the second line from the sea. Hotels are most built with a chain along the sea, they all have spacious sandy beaches with a convenient entrance to the water. The only drawback of the Hurghada is the wind, which in the spring blows quite strongly. Many hotels on the beaches even have a special barrier.
Sharm el-Sheikh, unlike Hurghada, was built much later, just 10 years ago, and in general, hotels there are more modern. The resort consists of isolated bays, in which several hotels stand, and the whole resort life is concentrated in the center – Naame Bay Bay, where cafes, restaurants, bowling.
The main drawback of Sharma is an uncomfortable entrance to the water. The fact is that the water area is full of corals, which are protected by law, and therefore hotels simply reckon through reef pontoon bridges, from which tourists are already peeling into a decent depth. But right next to hotels can be swimming with mask and flippers or immerse yourself with scuba directly to the dicked underwater world. The climate in the resort is softer and the wind is not particularly felt.
In general, all Egypt hotels offer system service "half board", That is, breakfasts and dinners, and only individual hotels, usually standing away from the center, offer the system "All inclusive" – True, it is much poorer than in the same Turkey.
