El Sheikh, or brief "Sharm",
is the place that most people talk about if going to Sinai.
It is situated at the bery south of Sinai, right next to
the famous Ras Mohamed.
It is a place that in the late 60ies still consisted only
of only a very few people, but within very little time developed
to a booming tourist place for many nationalities.
Talking about the destination Sharm El Sheikh, most people
will find themselves probably not even there but in Naama
Bay, which is the next "village" so to
speak, but, in a way it is a part of Sharm. And, living
in Naama Bay or in Sharm actually doesn't really matter.
For visitors that like to snorkel a lot, Naama Bay might
still be nicer, since hotels
have been built later over here and the coral
reefs right in front of the hotels are in a
still better condition.
Normally, visitors go to Sharm or Naama
Bay at nights. There are plenty of shops, restaurants
and agencies that have open until late night. Plenty of
shisha (traditional water pipe) places can
be found next to the pavements, and people smoke their shisha
while chatting about the experiences of the day. Tobacco
for the shisha exists in various flavours, such like apple,
strawberry, vanilla etc. and it can be baught in many shops
for a very small aamount of money.
