    Anyone been to egypt?

    I am due to go on 30th Aug to sharm el sheik (sp) I have heard alot of good and bad things about this resort and egypt.

    So if you have been, any bit of advice would be great.

    Cheers

    I've been for a day...went to Cairo...museums, pyramids and sphynx were amazing!

    ...if you go to the desert and someone offers to take you on a camel ride...dont do it...its been known that people get robbed and battered...umm...make sure you have all your jabs done

    enjoy the trip pics are a must!

    ive been to sharm el sheik for two weeks last year, bout a month after the bombs.

    Beautiful place, couldnt fault it, went to egypt for a day to cos u jus have to see the pyramids!!!

    Make sure all your excursions are done through your resort as they are a lot safer and there are a lot of excursion companies that are a bit dodgy.(ie not turning up to pick u up).

    Oh yeah and also, they cant drive. The taxis are mainly old peugeot estates. make sure you wear your seatbelt and hold the doors in cos they could easily fall off.

    All in all one of the nicest holidays i have been on. Oh yeah make sure you go diving and quad biking too.

    cheers guys.

    Yeah i have heard that there are some dodgy people out there, also they like to hassle you alot.

    One of the common things i have heard from egypt is the tummy bugs everyones seems to have.

    I will try and go c the pyramids, also quad bikin sounds fun

    Any more advice or experiences appricated..

    As dip says, Great place.

    I've been there for the past 3 years now. Locals are all friendly enough, Nice, Hot weather.

    Steer clear of the local food, and salads etc or You may get a case of the squits!

    Oh and you must go Diving too
