In early March, I went to Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt for a week in an all inclusive deal. I went on holiday with my family with the first of many to come in the future. The resort I stayed at was Aqua Blu Resort where it is know for its aqua park for other tourists and locals. It is the largest Aqua Park in Sharm with 44 slides to have so much fun. The usual temperature around the first week of March is around 23-29 degrees with the sunset about 6pm. Winter was ending and it was time for the temperature to get a bit more hotter.
Knowing the food and drinks (obviously alcohol) was all included, we knew we would have a good time by not worrying about going any where for drinks and not having to cook ourselves as it was a break away from the usual at home. As we landed in Egypt, we were greeted with our holiday rep and he guided us to our shuttle bus to taxi us to the resort. The resort was 20 minutes away and majority of the roads were main roads and going past popular location Naama Bay.
Here are some photos of the holiday that I am sharing with you all.
The view from the room we stayed in and the main building.
The swimming pools around the resort and the slides. There was a children’s area to play in the swimming pool which my nephew loved.
The sunset behind outside our room door as you can see the hills of the sand.
I went to the Old Market were a lot of spices, fake garments, fruits and vegetables and local products were sold. This place is one of the tourist attractions if you do not like the shopping malls and like to see the street seller in their stalls. I brought home a souvenir with one of the guys using sand to make a camel in the desert with my name on the bottle. It’s great to see people with talent in what they do. It did get quite annoying to see fake designer hand bags and wallets but that is what people sell for a living. Also, they could easily recognise who was a tourist and they would approach you to buy and when it came to buying things, haggling was a skill to have.
We decided to go to Soho Square, this is the modern and western part of Sharm were there are restaurants, shops and tourists. It took about 25 minutes from the resort to go here and it was in the evening we went. Every hour there is a fountain display with music and lights which is exciting to watch for 10 minutes. We went to the Indian restaurant called Bombay.
Here are some food and cakes photos that was available at the resort but there was an Indian/Chinese, Mediterranean and Italian restaurants. Also, there was a food court that served pizzas, chips, pasta, noodles, burgers and hot dogs. As well as another stall were ice cream was served. Not to mention there was a bar outside and you could get drinks from all restaurants and food courts.
The resort provided a shuttle service that would take you to the beach. The beach was called Terrazzina beach.
