    Sharm El Sheikh In July

    We're off to the Red Sea for first time in July. Understand it will be rather warm.

    Anyone else been? Any tips on things to do, (not do) places to see?

      Will be very hot in July ! It's all about the scuba and relaxing, oh and never buy anything without a good haggle.

      Where are you staying ?
      The quad/buggy desert tour is good but do the sunset one it's beautiful.

      I second this. Do the quad bike evening tour taking in the Bedouin meal / dance. Best thing that we have done on holiday. My 18 year old daughter loved it and she doesn't like anything.

      If you want to go shopping go to Soho Square. They're not allowed to hassle you there.

      If you do go to Soho Square the food court is good value. Avoid the Pub at the entrance, its very very expensive.

      Enjoy

      Don't plan on doing any trips outside of Sharm.

      Do NOT bother with buying a visa (unless you are staying longer that 15 days or travelling outside Sinai or Ras Mohammed) when you arrive at the airport, no matter what people say. You will receive a free Sinai entry permission stamp on arrival.
      Do not use ice in drinks unless you are sure it is made with bottled water.
      If you handle Egyptian money, wash your hands ASAP. Most places will take £ sterling.

      If you do get the shits, buy stuff from a chemist (doesn't cost much). Immodium or other bought at home is normally of no use.
      We used to bring their stuff home with us, then send it to someone we know. She then sent it out to her husband in Afghanistan when he was serving out there.

      in which he beat six or seven players before unleashing a fierce drive that rattled the crossbar"

      Antinel I think it's called, take this for the shits and you'll be right as rain within the day.

      Take a bullet proof vest or go to the Cotswolds instead
      You know I'm right

      That's the stuff. Works wonders, so I'm told.
      Never needed it myself after about 20 trips.
