– Union Day in Sharm El Sheikh

From: DirectRooms
Published: Fri Dec 17 2010

As Union Day falls on 22nd February 2011, it is at time when Red Sea resorts are busier as the temperature at this time is considerably warmer than on the Mediterranean. It is also at the height of the tourist season when there are countless European visitors here. The holiday does place a strain on Sharm El Sheikh hotels resources and visitors are advised to make a booking before travel.

Clement weather, good tourist infrastructure, sandy beaches, crystal clear warm water, eclectic marine life species and coral reefs, and historic attractions draw holidaymakers from northern Europe, especially in winter. Na'ama Bay is nearby and offers a full range of watersports and the opportunity for snorkelling and swimming.

Dive boats for trips out to Ras Muhammad Natural Park provide scuba divers with the opportunity of diving near coral reefs and seeing some colourful fish. Mt Sinai is a taxi ride away and is a major religious site. Walkers taking the meandering trail to the 2,300m summit of the mountain will be walking in historic footsteps and will be rewarded with excellent views.

Lek Boonlert, marketing head of DirectRooms commented: "Sharm El Sheikh receives visitors from all over the world and has numerous accommodation options for them. At national holiday times, such as Union Day, the resort sees extra tourists, and this can create a surge in demand, which visitors can beat with a little online browsing."
