The city of Hurghada is divided into three specific areas in the South is Village Road where you will find the major Brand Hotels, nightclubs and more touristic shops, this area is the most modern part of Hurghada and i find not to be typical of the city in whole, although you will find plenty of facilities here and plenty of shops it has really been geared up for the tourist and nothing else, just south of Village Road and heading towards Safaga you come to the Sahl hasheesh Road this is where you will find the majority of Resort Hotels such as the Titanic Beach the Dana Beach and the Sunrise Garden Beach, this part of the city being some 10Km south has some of the best hotels in the region and, you will also find numerous shops in an arcade that runs along most of the Sahl Hasheesh Road, coming north and back towards the centre of Hurghada and just north of Village Road you come to Sheraton Road and the district better known as Sekalla, here you will find numerous shops and plenty of fast food chains including Pizza Hut and McDonalds, who have their own make on Egypt, also in this district you will find some good restaurants and bistros walking along Sheraton Road and heading north you will pass many 3 and 4 Star Hotels all that have their own beach front position, at the very far end of Sheraton Street you will come to Shedwah Road walking east on this road brings you to the Hurghada Marina this is a relatively new development that has may fine bars and Restaurants this is where you will find Papas Bar this is a must for anyone visiting Egypt, to the North and west of this district you will come to El Dahur this is the Old district of Hurghada and is where you will find many of the traditional shops of Egypt and in general is where you will find the locals shopping, this district although really set up for the locals is really worth a visit and you may well find a good bargain to be had, as with most parts of Egypt Haggling is a way of life and if you are prepared to Haggle you will get yourself a good deal.
Overall this city has much to offer the tourist from fine beaches to excellent cuisine and shops to suit every pocket, there are very few downsides to this city apart from it being fairly spread out that can be a drawback, but with taxis being cheap and a small shuttle bus connecting Village Road, Sekalla and El Dahur getting around is not a problem, communication between the other cities in Egypt is also easy as there is a good network of coaches that operate daily to Cairo and to Luxor in the Nile Valley, there are also flights to Cairo and to the Sinai that operate daily and a regular passenger ferry to and from Sharm-El-Sheik, overall this city just about has everything a tourist needs and i would recommend it as a destination for your next holiday.
Although there is a local bus service in Hurghada this is limited to one specific route in the city operating from El Dahur in the North to Village Road in the South, but does run at regular intervals throughout the day, there are also Taxis (Blue and Orange) that will take you to any part of the city, but please arrange your fare for your whole party before getting in and finally there are micro buses these vehicles normally hold around 12 passengers and is the cheapest mode of transport in Hurghada they operate on various routes around the city and the driver will slow down and hoot to see if you want to be picked up once you have done your journey pay the driver around 5le per passenger and leave the vehicle .
In this part of Egypt there is no Railway service and the only mode of transportation apart from hire car or taxi is coach this again in fairly cheap and you will find that there a various destinations covered from Hurghada including Cairo Luxor Aswan and Suez there are various companies that operate these services and normally you will find that services operate day and night.
Ferries operate daily between Hurghada and Sharm-el-Sheik but are subject to both sea conditions and during the winter months is reduced to three times a week.
Finally Hurghada airport does operates domestic flights to Cairo and Sharm-el-Sheik it also operates international flights to the UK France Germany and Russia amongst others, the domestic flights to Cairo can be booked in advance or 24 hours prior to travel, the airport is situated to the west of the city and access to the airport can gained by taxi at a small premium charge.
