“El Dahar!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

El Dahar is the locals shopping district. There are Mini Markets that sell thing a lot cheaper than you would get at your hotel or surrounding area of your hotel. If you are looking for diners, bars etc then this isn't the place for you you should be further down the road at Sheraton Road, where this is more for Tourists.

“The real McCoy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

If you really want to see hoe real Egyptins live and shop and pick up bargains then this is the place to be its wher real people live. If you just want to stay in your cosy little all inclusive bubble that gives you all your free drinks and food then forget it you don't really want to experience the real thing which makes us wonder why you came here at all unless it was purely the sun which is boundless but you are really missing the trick of being here In the first place. Its ,wonderful and vibrant and full of kind lovely people who ok are strapped for cash at the moment, but they have hearts as big as buckets! These wonderful warm people live work and shop here and it's great ! If you are lucky enough to grab a heavenly home in the sun here then you will find all you want for it here and good prices with a smile and a welcome to match. Intimidated ? , never .Feel threatened? Not once in all the 8 years of traversing its narrow streets and shops made welcome ? Every time and often we are the only Europeans who delve further than its first couple of streets . Feel safe ? Totally if that's not up your street and you aren't prepared to haggle then forget it and stick to El Memsha ( village road ) or Sekalla where bars and clubs and alcohol abound want to sample true local Egypt then come on board it's great

“Experience locals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

A very vibrant local centre, with many chances to speak to real Egyptians. It may get very tiring, however, as you are being approached every 7 metres to buy something... Great for learning about Egyptian life - it is very poor and often dirty.
