Keen golfers might enjoy a round at Maritim Jolie Golf Course, while further inland it’s worth making a trip out to Jabal Mousa, a mountainous nature reserved believed be the place where Moses received the 10 Commandments.

If you’re keen to learn a bit about Egyptian history while in town, King Tut Museum makes for a good afternoon. Equally, Al-Mustafa Mosque and the Heavenly Cathedral are architecturally impressive and well worth a visit for something a bit more cultural.

The Old Market is also a must to immerse yourself in local culture and experience the hustle and bustle – plus a spot of haggling too.

By night, Sharm El-Sheikh’s casinos, cocktail bars, booming nightclubs, karaoke hotspots and even traditional belly-dancing shows provide the entertainment.
