Dive Sites: Shaab Saiman, Ras Disha, Abu Haschish, Malek Disha (all Drift Dives)
I had a great time with my German dive buddy Tanja. We saw our first big sharks and lots of barracudas. Of course there are better dive sites in the Red Sea than theseones around Hurghada.
But we booked a dive & cruise package. During the river Nile cruise we visited all the famous temples of the old Pharaohs along the Nile from Luxor to Abu Simbel. It is unbelievable how they could build these huge monuments more than 3000 years ago.
Diving & culture - a good combination!
