Hurghada how long to stay?

Are planning a visit to Hurghada, Egypt after a lengthy trip around Europe. Wondering how much there is to do. We definitely want to lax out on the beach and swim but other than that how much is there to do? Need to know as we are wanting to incorporate Cairo, Luxor, Aswan into our time as well.

Must admit not much unless you want to fly to Cario or Luxor to which each of those will take a couple of days each. Hurgahda is ok for shopping but not much else

I have heard this is the peak time and also that lots of UK tourists visit. I'm not really wanting a holiday in the UK

The vast majority of visitors to the Red Sea resorts are Russians and Germans with a good number of Italians in the southern region. I have been travelling extensively from the Sinai down to Marsa Alam over the past couple of years and hardly met any British at all. The British seem to favor Sharm El Sheihk but even there they do not represent the majority .

What a plonker!!

It looks like he is from one of our far flung colonies and will be the type to complain that there are too many Egyptians in Egypt. and if he hasn't encountered the Russians on holiday, he is in for a treat.
