Originally a fishing village, Hurghada is bordered by the desert and the Red Sea. Tourists can stroll through the older markets, stopping to drink tea with the sellers, or bargaining their way to a hand-woven carpet. Or take a drive through the outskirts of the town and see camels and sheep walking in the streets, older men sitting in small cafes smoking water pipes, or the vast variety of local food vendors selling items that we in Scandinavia are just not used to. All of these cultural differences are what make Egypt an exciting destination.
Hurghada’s origins in the tourist market lie mostly in its quality as a diving destination. Numerous coral reefs and islands that fill the sea in the surrounding area provide you with a choice of some fifty different dive sites, within the range of the powerful daily diving boats.
Hurghada is an excellent destination for those of you that wish to experience more of what Egypt has to offer topside, as well as for non-divers and families.
