  • Hi Mix magazine readers, Im Zane. Ive been working here in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el Sheikh as a tour guide for many years. My job means I am responsible for ensuring my guests take home the best possible memories of our beloved Sharm. I have been kindly asked by Mix magazine to share some of these insights with you. So here goes

    Below is a quick and easy guide to make sure your holiday runs smoothly, trouble free and most impor-tantly enjoyable!

    Travelling:-The safest way to reach Naama Bay, Old Market or any other destination is to use your hotels shuttle bus. However, when shuttle buses are not available there are three alternative ways of travelling:

    Rent a Car you can rent a car by day, week or month and with or without a driver. Rates start from 150 EGP per day depending on the rental company, the cars kilometer limit, make/model of the car and the rental period. International companies are usu-ally more expensive than the local ones, but please always ensure if using a local company, that the car is fully insured. This option is best for those who like to discover the area by themselves and are aware of the driving style in Egypt.

    Cars drive on the right hand side. Please put on your seatbelt at all times although it is only compulsory for the driver and the front seat passenger. The speed limit is 60 km around town. Dont use a mobile phone whilst driving and stay fully focused as the behaviour of other drivers in Egypt can be rather erratic!

    Taxis blue and white saloon cars holding a licence number are the official taxis licensed to carry foreign passengers. They are meant to have a working me-ter but I wouldnt count on it! Thus, the best practise is to agree on a price before you get in. There is a minimum charge of 10 EGP. Going from Naama Bay to Old Market (approx. 5 km) costs a maximum of 15 EGP and never agree on an AC supplement. Once you agree on the price and reach your destination, leave the taxi first and then hand the money over through the window. Try to carry small notes such as 10 or 20 EGP to avoid waiting or negotiating for change. I dont advise ladies to sit in the front pas-senger seat and if alone, always sit in the back and try not to answer any questions concerning your name, marriage status or nationality etc. Never accept a lift from a private car even if the driver offers you a taxi service.

    Mini-bus also blue and white. They go up and down the main Peace Road for as little as 1le. They must be hailed from the roadside as there are no designated bus stops. The Mini-buses go all the way to Old Town Sharm and then onwards to Hadaba. On the in-ward bound trip they go from Hadaba direct to Naama Bay and onwards towards Sharks Bay, the Airport and Nabq. The Mini-buses are generally used by the Egyptian staff but tourists can still use them. Expect each bus to be full by the end of the journey. Please dress appropriately as you will need to bend to get in and out. Simply shout Henna Kwais (heres good) when you need the Mini-bus driver to stop anywhere along the route.

    The PeoPle:-Take a look around you. You will notice more Egyp-tian men than women living in Sharm. This is because most of the mens wives and families live in Cairo, Alexandria, or the country. Sinai is home to many Bedouins. These people are historically nomadic and have a rich culture different from Egyptians. The Egyptian and Bedouin societies are conservative when it comes to dress sense and public behaviour. Women will wear clothes to cover themselves, some-times wearing a head scarf (hegab). Even the men are fairly covered, sometimes wearing a Galabeyia (an ankle length long cotton shirt).

    love and romance:-Oh the bliss of a holiday romance but here are just a couple of tips which might help. First, if you meet an Egyptian local and fall head over heels, you can-not simply head off into the sunset. Egyptian law states that an unmarried Egyptian cannot share a hotel room with you unless he/she can present your marriage papers.
