I've backpacked quite a bit by myself over last couple of years but due to the exams looming after xmas, i have booked a flight to Sharm el Sheik and staying for a week of diving, sun, watersports and r & r etc.. I was planning on staying and diving in Sharm but now I'm having second thoughts as I think it will be too westernized and cultureless. Dahab sounds more chilled and less developed. My only concern is that the diving in Dahab won't live up to the hype of diving in the Red Sea (everyone raves about diving in Sharm).
Any suggestions? Anyone been to both? or been diving at either one?
By the way I'm an Advanced Open Water diver but still relatively inexperienced.
