The offbeat town of Dahab is away from the maddening tourists and is not visited by many. Locals also prefer to go to Dahab instead of its expensive neighbor Sharm-el-sheikh.. It’s the best place for water activities like scuba diving & snorkeling. Also trekking enthusiasts can hike the highest point of Egypt starting from Dahab.
