LOCAL
RECOMMENDATIONS

THE PERFECT DAY

MORNING

For a perfect morning, you can start with a jog on our tropical pathways and invigorate your body before it gets too hot. Take a quick refreshing shower and then at 8.30am have a traditional Egyptian breakfast so you're just in time to catch the first trip to Salah El Dean Citadel at 9am. This takes you to visit the main sea defence point of this area, which is quite impressive. Then you can check out beautiful Pharaoh Island and do some truly fantastic snorkelling, marvelling at the schools of exotic fish darting through crystal-clear waters.

AFTERNOON

For the afternoon, head back to the mainland and then pop to the Waterworld Diving Center. Have a few delicious snacks at the on-site restaurant and then, after allowing your food to digest, take your pick of the exhilarating aquatic activities on offer. Fantastic diving trips and courses are available. You can windsurf and water-ski, soar above the ocean parasailing, or even have some childish fun in a banana boat or crazy doughnut. Why not, eh? You only live once.

EVENING

After a hectic but satisfying day, use the evening to totally relax and head to Castle Zamman, just 20 minutes from Taba. Here you can enjoy the beautiful view of the sea while your meal of succulent meat and slowly cooked vegetables is painstakingly prepared. Your meal can take between one and three hours, but while you wait you can explore the underground treasure room, sip a cocktail by the bar, or if you really want to unwind, get a heavenly massage.

INSIDER TIPS

LOCAL CULTURE

CULTURE

Try not to sit with your legs crossed as showing the sole of your shoe can be considered an insult to others.


CUSTOM

When attending a dinner at an Egyptian friend or associate's residence, always bring some kind of gift with you as a mark of respect, such as chocolates or flowers.


Culture

Dressing modestly would be appropriate and is more respectful of local culture. However, this is not to say that you need to adopt native clothing.


PEOPLE

People of the same gender may interact with far less physical distance than you are used to, so much so that it may conflict with the western notion of personal space. Egyptians are a very warm people and will tend to stand quite close to you - please be aware that moving away may be seen as a sign of aloofness. Conversely, men and women stand much farther apart from each other when interacting.


DID YOU KNOW ?

Alcohol

Alcohol is allowed in certain licensed outlets but drinking in public areas is prohibited.


Borders

From Taba's unique location you can see three different countries' borders: Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Israel.


Communication & Behaviour

Women should wear modest clothing in public. It is a good idea to keep a scarf handy to cover your head, especially if visiting a mosque. When inside a mosque, your arms, shoulders and legs should be covered. Please also remove your shoes.


Language

Arabic is the official language of Egypt. However, the Arabic spoken on the streets differs greatly from the standard Arabic written in newspapers.


Taba Location

Taba City is a part of Egypt but is actually in a different continent. Most of Egypt's towns are located in Africa but Taba is located in Asia. From Taba's unique location you can see three different countries' borders: Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Israel.


WHAT TO PACK

Egyptian Pound

The Egyptian Pound is the official currency in Egypt. However, US dollars ($), euros (€) and pound sterling (£) are generally accepted everywhere.


Money

We recommend that you exchange at least some money - enough to cover airport incidentals and transportation to the hotel - before you leave home, so you can avoid unpleasant queues at the airport ATMs.


Sea shoes

Remember to bring sea shoes for use while swimming, because some of the coral can be quite sharp.
