Hurghada is a city in the Red Sea Governorate of Egypt. It is a tourist center located on the Red Sea coast.

The city was founded in the early 20th century, and since the 1980s has been continually enlarged by Egyptian and foreign investors to become the leading seashore resort on the Red Sea. Holiday villages and hotels provide aquatic sport facilities for sailboarders, yachtsmen, scuba divers and snorkelers.

Hurghada stretches for about 36 kilometres (22 mi) along the seashore, and it does not reach far into the surrounding desert. The resort is a destination for Egyptian tourists from Cairo, the Delta and Upper Egypt, as well as package holiday tourists from Europe, notably Italians, Russians, Czechs and Germans. Until a few years ago it was a small fishing village. Today Hurghada counts 248,000 inhabitants and is divided into three parts: Downtown (El Dahar) is the old part; Sekalla is the modern part, and El Korra Road is the most modern part. Sakkala is the relatively modest hotel quarter. Dahar is where the town's largest bazaar, the post office and the long-distance bus station are situated.

Hurghada is a Small city. so you wouldn't really expect much. now that a HUGE resort is linking up called sahal hassesh is under construction the city is doubling it's capacity and it's quality. It's the next Sharm El-Shiehk.

Beautiful resort city! Didn't know about it, impressed.

Now see how investments can transform a place, we have the Red Sea and yet not a single of our cities can compete with Hurghada, let alone Shar el Sheikh! :eek:hno::eek:hno::eek:hno:

Bravo Egypte! :)
