Despite what all the travel sites say, we all know there is nothing worth going all the way to Sinai for except maybe to sit in a resort in Sharm. Seriously, what is even out there anyway?

 

The beaches are seriously disappointing.

The color of the water is just so blah.

There is nothing interesting to look at while sunbathing.

Can you even build a sand castle out of that “perfect” sand? What a waste of effort.

Anyone interested in diving should just not come.

There’s nothing to see in the waters of Sinai.

It’s like the sea life just disappears once it hits the coast of the Sinai.

Anyone who wants to do new and edgy sports also won’t find anything to do.

There are basically zero opportunities for wind surfing and kite surfing.

There’s just basically no adventure to be had in Sinai khalas.

Even when you go to the city, it doesn’t even feel like civilization.

Overall, if you are looking for a great getaway, the Sinai is not the place for you.

Obviously, this article is a sarcastic way to show just how amazing Sinai actually is. It’s a wonderful place that should be on everyone’s list to travel to. The diving is not only some of the best in the region, but in the entire world. The history is fascinating, the views are incredible, and it’s a great place to get away from it all. Happy travels.

    Despite the fact that egyptians who are worthy to know about Sinai already know about Sinai for several years now and it doesn’t really need to be advertised internally , it’s a great article <3
    although you forgot to mention that it's also a sacred land due to the holy events happened there in the past which makes it full of energy and peacefulness.

    Bad impressions and then you throw LOL, I was just kidding. How stupid and unproductive is that to give that much shirty feedback and what makes you think that everyone is going to continue reading the whole pathetic article. Talk about
    our country to impress the rest, not to make us fade away!

    • Raghda A. El Sayed

      your lack of sense of humor is what’s letting us fade away.

      Your picture for sale? 🙂

      • Might be. Does it matter? My picture taken without credit – I am a writer for open source and strongly believe in sharing stuff – but my only ever rule is CC-By-SA and that could be respected I guess if you don’t pay for pictures

  • Jayda El Zarka

    This is disgusting. You just put amazing photos and put bad comments. If you are Egyptian you have to defend your country , you are looking on the bad side look on the bright side this is God’s creation. And the sea is one of the things that shocked me , what is the meaning of blah ? You people MAKE ME SICK??

    • aya

      Seriously relax, this is a SARCASTIC article showing all the amazing things in Sinai in a SARCASTIC way. And if you even bothered reading the article under the pictures you would’ve known that already…don’t be so quick to defence!

  • Diana Brauch

    Love the sarcasm! Makes people reconsider going regardless of bad comments because of the political situation. Smart move.

  • Sarah Amin

    I loved the pictures but the titles is baaaaaaaaaaad .. I only clicked on it to bash it in the comments .. I get the sarcasm and all but bear in mind that if it’s not an egyptian checking the titles , you’re only bashing your country

  • Yasamin Badiei

    Beautiful 🙂

  • christianalbertmueller

    to be true, i loved this article. i lived 10 years in dahab and the writing is kind a style how ppl feel and talk there. “we know our ugly dahab” or ‘if the trash would be gone from our streets it wouldnt be dahab anymore’ is just kind a funny talk.
    For sure just taking photos without credit was not the best idea and you should ask before. would be similar someone copies your article and put his name bellow.
    Anyhow we are all not perfect (like dahab) .. and hope the good vibes of beautiful sinai will spread for some love and peace around the world.

  • Nice Collection of Pics i love it..
