Hurghada which is also known as Ghardaga in Egypt used to be a simple fishing village in the past but now it has became one of the famous tourist destinations in Egypt because of its crystal-clear water, multitude of ship-wrecks and untouched-reefs. The town reflects a typical Egyptian life with its mosques, bazaars and the lively atmosphere. The desert-mountains located further inland are perfect for having a desert tour. What people expect most from their holiday is mostly sunshine and relaxation, and that’s what you get from Hurghada so you can book an advance cheap flights to Egypt and take the first step towards getting there.
The town is also famous for its extensive-nightlife as club-land giants like the Ministry of Sound Egypt and Hed-Kandi Beach-Bar operate parties seven nights a week and are immensely successful starting their operations since June 2008. Over eighty shops, fifteen restaurants and seven bars are also hosted in the new Hurghada Marina Boulevard. You can also get a chance to visit the Egypt’s only Bungee-Rocket at the Marina’s entrance standing proud of it.
You can find a chain of hotels spread along the beach stretching more than twenty KM. It doesent really matters if you are a scuba-diver or wind-surfer or like desert safaris because the town offers almost everything a visitor might want. It’s entirely up to you to choose whether you want to stay in one of the finest five star hotels of a simple economical guest house. Hurghada is also very famous for hosting some of the best diving spots in the world which can be reached just in a couple of hours from where you are staying. The dive sites are known to astound even the most experienced of the divers.
You might find yourself tempted to discover and explore when you reach the offshore islands and enjoying a delightful submarine-ride and viewing the marine life in a way that’s not only unique but also gets you closest to the life under the water. Temperature usually is dry and warm like the desert climate accompanied by steady breezes. Make sure you are protected against the direct sunlight as summers are quite hot while in winter the temperature ranges from 20-25 degree Celsius with water temperature varying 20-22 degree Celsius.
