Celebrating March 8 in Hurghada
On March 8, I decided to buy a ticket for a week-long vacation to Hurghada as a gift to my wife. However, I did not do this through a travel agency, but actually I decided everything myself. But for this, I began to prepare long before March 8th.
I wanted to find a flight to Hurghada for a direct flight, it is on the schedule, but as I understand it, these are charters. But for the dates that I wanted there were no tickets, so I bought airline tickets with a few hour change in Istanbul.
The issue with the hotel did not take much time, and the visa, as you know, is issued directly at the Hurghada airport. Although I recently read the news that you now need to apply for a visa in advance, this seems to apply only to individual travelers.
The last question I needed to solve was health insurance, when I came to the agency I was offered a million types of insurance, in the end I took a standard insurance policy that covers only one trip.
On March 8, I presented my wife, whom she was delighted with, and in the evening on March 9 we sat at the Boryspil airport and waited for the flight, unfortunately the flight was not direct, but with a transfer in Istanbul. But in Istanbul, the transplant lasted less than two hours, when we arrived in Hurghada I took care of the transfer to the hotel in advance, because I did not really want to take a taxi.
March 8 in Hurghada
Hurghada is considered the second most popular resort in Egypt, but I can say that the resort is far from poor in attractions. Most of all I liked the mosque of Abudulhasan Elshazi, we were not lucky to go there, because we were too “openly” dressed for such a place. This week-long rest was a real salvation, since in Kiev at that time it was still cold and snow lay in some places. I also came to the conclusion that it is quite realistic to organize a trip to Egypt on your own, without going to a travel agency.
