Nothing much to do or watch. A strand of boring shops and restaurants but the Marina is packed with great boats. Merchandise and souvenirs mostly Chinese goods but there are some shops in the "artificial" khan that sell Egyptian crafts and papyrus. Probably it is best go around sunset to have good views of the marina and boats. By night... More

The port although very stunning when the sun goes down. It is very quiet. This gives the shop keepers many opportunities to hassle you. There is a nice perfume shop with a nice chap selling perfumes called Kenzo perfumes. He is multilingual so it helps trying to negotiate a good price.

Went in taxi through hotel, really not worth bothering about, nothing to see. Waste of time when you could be relaxing at the cocktail bar at the hotel.

After being to Sharm on a previous holiday we were expecting something similar so quite disappointed really. It was a £12 bus ride each which took about 10 minutes to get there. Although it was a very beautiful area there really wasn't a lot to do. One little row of about 15 shops and a row of bars. Not really... More
