Before going to Hurghada, tourists should know the following:

Egypt’s city of Hurghada is on the Red Sea, about 500 km south of Cairo. I think that everyone who goes there should use everything it has to offer. Even though this village on the Red Sea was almost unknown twenty years ago, it is now visited by people from all over the world and locals. Hurghada is the capital of the Red Sea governorate and a popular place for tourists and divers.
