Once we reached our hotel cum hostel cum backpackers delight to our surprise the city was awake,Dahab is a wonderful place on the mountain foot with Red Sea embracing the coast. Best part you can hear the Sea waves all light up with the moonlight and Sky with stars shining enough to make you realize what you Miss in Cities.Dahab is famous for it's amazing diving which you can book in advance or can book on the spot. It has Beer/alcohol and good food to offer from around the world. The City center is a shopping hub if you can bargain you won't regret.The small artistic restaurant run by locals and foreigners are a must try. There is a small shopping mall for all the daily necessity(You will need it trust me..especially the water and toiletries). Once you are done with diving you can enroll for the Dinner in the desert which we Miss unfortunately.Places to visit : City center,Blue hole,Red Sea and Dessert.Caution : As Dahab is on the seashore the water is way to salty so you may need and extra bottle of water for rinsing yourself after bath.
Before travellers stumbled upon Dahab in the 1990s, it was a low-key, isolated coastal town inhabited by a few local families. On the weekends and during summer, Bedouin (nomadic Arab) families would come to fish in the Red Sea, spend time watching the waves go by and head back re-energised, munching on dried fish and dates.
That was then. But this idyllic, laidback Egyptian destination couldn't have stayed hidden for too long. Some independent travellers came upon Dahab and it became a hippie heaven in the 1980s. They fell in love with life by the sea, an intriguing landscape with both the Sinai Desert and the Red Sea, and the relaxed vibe all around.Almost 40 years later today, Dahab, which is Arabic for "gold", is the destination of choice for open-minded, adventurous travellers. While those who can afford it, stay at the cluster of resorts around the Blue Lagoon area, backpackers hang out in Assalah for economical great beachside hotels, reasonably priced food at beach shacks and all kinds of water sports such as diving and snorkelling.Visa
