I went there last week. We wanted to have a more authentic shopping and cultural experience. Dahar is where you are completely taken away from big beach resorts and fancy shopping areas. It was hot and sticky, the locals just going on about their daily...More

If you want to get away from the beaches, go to Dahar, typical egyptian life. Explore the souks, and haggle. While we were there we visited the Coptic church which is within walking distance of the souks.
