Where to go in Hurghada

Post by Whatever » Wed Nov 17, 2010 8:52 am

Arrived yesterday, bored. heard enough Russian for life and byond. Where can I go for a cold beer? talk to people who speak English. I think it is a mistake to travel to Hurghada solo. BORING

I forgot to mention that i am staying only till Saturday afternoon. In a flat behind Sea View Hotel but willing to go anywhere in Hurghada if it means hearing English and nice company

Whatever, sorry you are bored there is a lt to do, , snorkellin, diving, riding etc, you could go to Dahar ( my little place of choice ) and most of the bars and resturaunts there are very good , and Englsh people frequent them, or how about a drinkie in " Limeys " all cab drivers know where Limey's is, all the guys and gals there are Brits :)

It closed 28th November 2010 at 20.30!!!!! How about that Christine :lol: can't be more precise than that ;)

It was quiz night, everyone was preparing for the quiz, when suddenly the owners started arguing, it got louder and louder, then they just closed up. Nobody paid for their drinks or food because the owners left. They have no plans to re-open either.
