      What to do in Hurghada?

      1. Giftun Island. Who hasn’t dreamt of swimming with dolphins? Well, you can on Giftun Island! Prepare yourself for an unforgettable excursion. You can go snorkelling (underwater diving in shallow water) for a look at the sea bed of the Giftun Islands national park, or just relax on its magnificent golden beach.
      2. Mahmya Island. You will be literally entranced by this heavenly island. Mahmya means “nature reserve” in Arabic. This is a unique opportunity to marvel at the magnificent coral reefs where multi-coloured fish and turtles live.
      3. Abdel Moneim Riad Mosque. Located in the El Dahar district, this is Hurghada’s most important mosque. It stands proudly in the city, offering visitors an opportunity to find out about local rituals and customs.
      4. The markets. There are several small markets where you can buy fruit and vegetables. If you go to the old port, you can also find a fish market. It’s best to go in the morning so the fish is still fresh and there’s more choice!
      5. Quad bike excursions in the desert. What better than a short ride across the Egyptian desert on a quad bike, away from the hustle and bustle of the city? This excursion near Hurghada is a chance to visit an authentic Bedouin village, where you can learn a little more about the local culture and way of life. A camel ride and tea tasting are also included.
      6. Desert Breath is a work of art in the heart of the desert that will take your breath away! It has been the root of many theories, each more incredible than the last. But in the end, it’s really a work of art made by humans. You’ll need to be quick if you want to see this 100,000 m2 installation as it is slowly disappearing. Its many spirals are a good way of measuring the passage of time.
      7. Luxor and The Valley of the Kings. Hurghada isn’t far from Luxor, so don’t miss the opportunity to see the largest outdoor museum in the world. You’ll find some unique remains, such as the Luxor Temple, the Colossi of Memnon, the Karnak Temple, and even the Mummification Museum!
      8. Cairo. If your thirst for Egyptian culture hasn’t been quenched, escape to Cairo. There are so many monuments on which to feast your eyes you won’t know where to look. Indeed, the famous Pyramids of Giza await you, including that of Khufu, the 7th wonder of the world ... no less! If you need to cool down, the Nile is never far away. In fact, with a length of over 6,800 km it’s the longest river in the world, alongside the Amazon.
      9. Mini Egypt Park. If you don’t have a chance to go to Cairo or Luxor, don’t worry. Thanks to this park you can visit the whole of Egypt in just a few hours. All the country’s historic sites are represented in miniature here. It’s a perfect outing for the family. Whether you’re an adult or a child, you’ll love it.
      10. Hurghada Marina. Whilst you’re in Hurghada don’t forget to come here. Walks, Egyptian dishes, lounge bars, jazz, and boats define this idyllic spot perfectly, where the time will fly by!

      What to do and not do in Hurghada?

      • Egypt means markets, and therefore haggling! Here is some useful information to help you become an adept negotiator:
        1. Don’t enter a shop with a guide. It’s better to be on your own.
        2. Don’t show too much interest in the item you wish to buy. If you do, the shopkeeper will only give you a small discount.
        3. Take care never to mention the price first, but leave that to the salesman. This is a basic principle in negotiation. Don’t be afraid to tell your life story before returning to the item you’re interested in.
        4. Dress appropriately in keeping with the local culture.
        5. It is always appreciated if you use a few words in Arabic as a sign of respect (see the list below).
        6. If you manage to negotiate a reduction of more than 50%, that’s a good price.
        7. If you don’t agree on the price, walk out of the shop slowly to give the salesman time to approach you one more time.
      • Showing signs of affection in public, such as kissing, is greatly frowned upon by the Egyptians. In short, as a mark of respect for the Egyptian culture, dress appropriately. Away from the beach, do not wear short skirts or shorts, and never appear without a shirt or suitable covering!
      • You can pay in euros or dollars in most restaurants! If you intend doing some shopping, take several types of currency as this can be useful.
      • If you dream of visiting the pyramids at Giza or the temples at Luxor, don’t forget that Egypt is a huge country and the distances from one city to another can be significant. If you want to transfer to Cairo or Luxor, plan in advance, and consider flying there, instead of going by bus.
