Hurghada has been popular among tourists for several years. It is absolutely no wonder. This friendly town combines a tourist resort and Egyptian spirit. On the one hand, we have great hotels, a marina, and on the other, Egyptian local streets, markets.
Unfortunately, you won't be able to see any monuments in Hurghada. Hurghada is a very young city. It was only in the early 1980s that it began to develop with the influx of tourists. Previously, there was a fishing village here, and in most of the areas where today you can see hotels, shops, mosques, not so long ago there was a desert.
Nearby Hurghada are such places as: El Gouna, Sahl Hasheesh, Makadi, Safaga, Soma Bay. Keep in mind that these are not neighborhoods in Hurghada, although some travel agencies represent them in this way. This is especially important for people who fly to Hurghada and plan to use optional trips, because most of them have an extra transfer fee.
While on vacation in Hurghada, it is worth seeing Egyptian everyday life. Hurghada, in addition to its plethora of hotels, also has very local places such as the Dahara Market (souk) and the fish market that are well worth visiting.
