Sharm El Sheikh could easily become one of the trendiest destinations of 2013, and that would make a great boost for this stunning place. The city offers a wealth of vacation opportunities, with active travel choices for adrenaline junkies; breathtaking oasis resorts for those seeking a place for romance; and enough to do for families with kids.
A mix of traditional and modern, and ideally located on the edge of the Red Sea, this charming city is exotic and fascinating.
