Ra's Gharib Vacation Packages
Cairo, which is the national capital, is situated 160 miles (257 kilometers) northwest of Ra's Gharib.
Of course, limiting yourself to only one place, regardless of its popularity, can only ever give you a narrow window into the wider natural and cultural makeup of a region. So schedule in some time to discover Egypt's other natural and man-made attractions. You'll also find El-Tur, 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the west, and Santa Katarina 55 miles (89 kilometers) to the west.
If the weather forecast isn't that great, take a trip to Egypt's art galleries, art museums and history museums. For a glimpse into the spiritual side of Ra's Gharib, be sure to spend a little time at the area's many temples.
See Egypt in a completely different way. Rise up above the landscape and have a go at parasailing. Why not spend some time with a good local guide and sign on for a specialised tour? City walking tours and wildlife spotting tours are popular here.
Often, the most rewarding travel moments are to be found in a region's eating establishments. Fava beans as well as rice are regularly used in meals here. Follow the hungry locals and order lamb kofta or mezze. Egypt desserts such as umm ali (raisin cake in milk) are also great to try. Sit back and relax with a glass of Luxor, a popular beer in Egypt. Why don't you indulge in a wine to have with your food? Rubis D’Egypte rosé and Chateau des Reves red are two popular options. Coffee is a refreshing drink in this area.
When planning your vacation to Ra's Gharib, it's handy to remember that the nearest major airport, Sharm El-Sheikh International Airport, is situated in in Sharm El Sheikh, 85 miles (137 kilometers) away.
