Great catch! I went on the 20th JuneRay Finkle said:I took this one of G-OZBE in June.
What was Hurghada like? We're thinking of taking the kids for their first holiday abroad next year and Egypt is a possibility.
Hurghada is really nice! The views are absolutely stunning, and the people are so friendly there, they are all so welcoming, such as every new person you would meet who were from Egypt, they would say "Welcome to Egypt my friend". We stayed in the AMC Royal Hotel, which is kind of out of the way of Hurghada, but it's about a 15 minute drive which is not to bad. There are plenty of hotels in Hurghada, but I'd suggest one closer to the town :good: . The only problem we came across, which wasn't about the country, or the hotel, but it was the other tourists. There was a handful of nationalities such as Russian (mostly) Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Poland, but not many English. Even local shop owners asked why there wasn't many English people, I just replied saying the airline Monarch just started flying here with fair prices, as other airlines like Thomson and Thomas Cook are quite expensive to fly to Hurghada. But the other guests who were staying at our hotel, they were really rude. They had no manners, and were just generally rude, like they would push into a queues. Other than that, I would go back to Egypt, even Hurghada, but next year were looking at Sharm el Sheikh as we always like to try somewhere different :good:
