This partialy completed complex in the middle of the desert is a trap fro clients of the Livaboard diving boats coming in every thursday night. The whole place is built out of nothing and the variuous shops hassle you as you walk along. Unless you have to dont bother visiting this place.

There is a street running along the back of the harbour area which is full of shops with many many people asking you to... More

Went here when staying at The Hilton Nubian Resort. Nice bars, lots of shops but be prepared to haggle. Good restaurants if getting bored with your Hotel food and the bars do pints of Heineken!!!

Though it's said it's a great place to shop and it's beautifull and there are adverts even at the airport, it's only one short street with 4 shops repeating. You can buy fake brands and regular stuff and a couple of other things there, but I expect a true egyptian shops, some thrilling experience when trying to get the best... More

The shopping area a little like 'the lanes of Brighton' all selling the same stuff and being cheeky e.g. 'Asda price' 'cheap as chips'. The inlet with moored cruisers very photogenic.
