It needs an extra touch

Well, Its a good place but it needs to be filled with its historical events, it also needs to be lightened at night...I guess it might give a great view and an image for Egypt... read more

Well, Its a good place but it needs to be filled with its historical events, it also needs to be lightened at night...I guess it might give a great view and an image for Egypt especially that it is seen from the countires around it.

From the Taba Hilton you can visit the place by boat more times a day. The island is surrounded by nice coral reef with many kinds of picturesque coral fishes. The mask, snorkel and fins you will receive complimentary on the boat. Nice trip!

Here you will see the huge old castle on top of mountain. From top of this castle you can see all Cairo. There are many museums and mosque.You can spend a very nice day there without spend any money. Sure it's a trip you have to do it.

How did they build this years ago in the middle of the water and it is still there. Beautiful view of the castle, quick boat trip, amazing water around the castle. Better to go there early in the morning or afternoon, sun is very hot there.

Fascinating and well worth the visit, it was pleasing to see that restoration work was taking place and they they appeared to be succeeding in drawing tourists in. Cairo itself whilst interesting leave's a lot to be desired; again unfinished buildings, rubbish everywhere etc but it was a pleasant change to see manicured gardens and a bit of pride in... More
