Tourist Egypt. El gouna
Rest in Egypt is no longer a luxury. Many Russians love this country, its traditions and customs, hospitable resorts, including the resort town of El Gouna – still young, but already quite popular. This private resort city was artificially designed. On the one hand, the city is bordered by the Red Sea, and on the opposite side it is surrounded by fabulous purple desert mountains. El Gouna is located 25 kilometers north of the famous resort city of Hurghada (about 30 minutes by bus).
This city is known as one of the most famous Egyptian resorts and is famous for its beautiful beaches and scenic nature, which stretch for ten kilometers along the Red Sea coast. In addition, the city itself is interesting for its diverse and bizarre architecture, quiet and cozy atmosphere.
The main feature of this quiet town is an unusual layout of the city. The city consists of several islands interconnected by artificially dug canals, passages and bridges. Thanks to such a plan, the city was once dubbed the “Venice of Egypt”. Moving around the city is carried out by a trip by minibuses or through the canals on small boats, and all trips are free for tourists.
HOTELS EL GUNA
Here, tourists can not live in the usual high-rise hotels, and in the cozy low-rise houses scattered around the islands. Also, in addition to small houses, tourists will be offered luxury beach hotels. In total there are 14 hotels with a common entertainment infrastructure, which have the same owner. Two of them overlook the sea, and from the rest you can get to the beaches provided by transport. Classes of hotels are mostly 4.5 stars, but there are hotels of 3 stars. Since the hotels belong to one owner, then for a symbolic surcharge, living in one hotel, you can use the services of some other.
