Nuweiba & Taba
Sharm el Sheikh
I have just returned from
alone and am a young woman. I had no problems -- it's a lovely place. Just dress conservative. Yes, you are stared at and hassled a bit, but just say you're married and your husband is working and always say you're busy and goodbye. This worked for me. Garden City is a safe and quiet area for ladies alone. Go for it -- I did and it won't be my last time.
is a nice place.
is filthy. Get in and out. The people hassle you nonstop. The sound and light show at the Karnak temple is a waste. Go see the sights on your own in the daytime. Also, you don't need guides for the valley of the kings. Cabbies will try to get you to pay 100 LE to take you around the sights -- you can get it for a lot less if you just get cabs as you need them. Hotel packages are therefore a ripoff as they usually charge at least 80 to 90 LE per person. Don't let anyone lead you to the currency exchange -- they'll come in and get a commission off you at your expense in the form of a greatly reduced rate and the same goes for hotels. Overall it's a super cheap city.
is considered a upperclass neighborhood, which I found to be safe and friendly. This area of the city is provides a central starting point for tourist and business people alike, and is within walking distance of great shopping, banks, and dining.
For the best pizza in
, head to Quick Pizza. All pizzas are freshly baked in front of you and so are wonderfully fresh. For dessert, leave room for fateer -- Egyptian pancake which you can have with fruit, mixed nuts or -- delicious -- honey and cream.
is the best place in Africa.
