One to Remember

sunny -38 °C

ra.jpgSharm El Sheikh, in my opinion, is one of the most beautiful places that you should visit in Egypt. It is situated at the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, between Mount Sinai and the Red Sea.


There is a mix of fantastic things to do and see. Starting with watersports which are literally the main thing to do there, if you’re at the Red Sea you should actually get in the sea. The top diving spots in the area are the Ras Mohammed national park, Ras Om El Sid and the Gulf of Aqaba. Also, it has the best underwater view, but it is necessary to take a longer boat trip. From my experience, I took a full day trip, which will include lunch, as we stopped a couple of times throughout the trip. In addition, you can organize scuba diving tours through plenty of diving schools to book a tour. I remember the colors and fishes that surprised me just after putting my head under the water, which I won't forget.
Then Saint Catherine's Monastery, which was carved from the rock at the base of Mount Sinai. It's one of the world's oldest Christian monasteries and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In addition, to discover the Sinai desert by camel. This one of my friends recommended it to me. They are available both day and night but I would vise at day.


My trip was planned in the middle of July, as it was very hot. If you don't like hot weather I would strongly advise avoiding the months of July and August as it will be very, very hot. Also, The winter months are too cold to enjoy the beach. The best months are October and November,caus it's warm and sunny and average temperatures of .. are ideal for outdoor activities like camel riding and desert excursions.


Furthermore, I would STRONGLY advise you to Try Egyptian food since your in Egypt it's a one time experience. Don't hesitate I can assure you it's safe. So, mainly barbecue dishes like kofta, kebab, and stuffed duck, or dine on Middle Eastern cuisine in Na'ama Bay.
