Additionally, there is a fleet of blue and white tuk-tuks, which are essentially miniature buses with varied degrees of roadworthiness that are used to carry inhabitants about Sharm el Sheikh. These are the most cost-effective mode of travel in comparison to taxis, which are rather pricey. They operate on a set route from north to south, including a detour to Hadaba’s expat/locals neighborhood. To hail a tuk-tuk, just wait beside the main street and wave your hand as one approaches. When you board the bus, enter the vehicle, pick a seat, and simply hand your money to the driver (with the help of other passengers if you sit in the back). Never should the fare exceed 3LE. If you begin negotiating the price, the driver may very possibly attempt to charge you far more than necessary. Make no attempt to make payment in foreign currencies. When you reach your location, utter the phrase ‘hinna quiis’ (here is good). Take note that Naama Bay is referred to as Marina (despite the fact that there is no marina!).

Assemble a collection of little coins and notes to pay your journey.


Taxis in Sharm are often new cars from Hyundai or Chevrolet. Avoid using the taxi meter; it is likely that it is no longer functional; they quickly break down due to the dust and would cost more than the “set” costs. Always keep a record of the driver’s identification number. The tourist police are really useful if you get into trouble or suddenly realize you’ve left anything inside, but they just have the cab number. Assume they do not have meters. Locals assert that they do not. Assure that you have transportation ready for you, since Sharm el Sheikh airport is the most difficult section of Egypt to get an affordable cab. They will want between 150 and 400 LE for the ten-minute journey to Nabq. It’s simple to reach the main road, call a taxi, and pay between 50 and 100le. Otherwise, you will feel violated as a result of the event. Consult your hotel to see if they provide a pick-up service. Ascertain that you have modest notes available to cover the fee and never pay before reaching your location, ensuring that you pay just the pre-arranged amount. Ascertain that the driver understands that you are paying in Egyptian pounds, not in British pounds. Taxis dislike accepting currency.
