Sharm El-Sheikh is gifted with natural beauties of the Sinai , including its idyllic beaches, rare and beautiful reefs, crystal clear water and surrounding mountains. This city is located the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula on the Red Sea, close to Jordan, Israel and Saudi Arabia. Sharm’s is best known as one of the number one diving sports world-wide. On the diplomatic front, Sharm has been nicknamed the "City of Peace” because recently it has been a main spot for peace treaties and conferences. The city itself is a metropolis of entertainment where one’s wallet goes a long way. Since its primary commerce is tourism, it is not a town for those seeking the ‘off-the-beaten” track experience; during the day, Sharm bustles with people selling textiles, goods, diving tours, sports activities and adventure trips. However, sharm’s culture is alluring as people relax outside or in restaurants, smoking ‘shisha,’ the equivalent to smoking tobacco, which is available in a variety of fruit flavors, smoked from a large pipe. At night, the city comes alive with lights and live entertainment as the streets fill with tourists with tans and locals displaying their talents, art and performs musical or theatrical shows.
Part of Sharm El-Sheikh’s mystic is that it is exotic yet European at the same time. It has first-class facilities and amenities and some of its hotels are friendly to the pocket while offering the equivalent to five star hotels in other parts of the world. There is a mix of quaint, intimate hotels with modern designs, as well as larger international hotel chains.
