Apparently this was the old town of Hurghada, so I was told by an old Egyptian man. I studied photos of Dahar of past times and how clean and fantastic they look. Personally, I can’t keep away from the place. Although today it seems completely...More

I wouldn´t recommend if you are visiting hurghada and want to see only the clean places. This particulary is dirty and cheap place to buy tasty fruits etc. :)

We took a city tour and visited this area, has a fruit and vegetable souk, also a market if you go evening time. This is mainly where the locals live.

Bustling by day megga bustling in the evening. Over-run by taxis who can be a little pushy, however, a quick NO usually does the trick. Dahar is the local area of Hurghada and contains the huge fruit and vegetable market that not only sells giant...More

Worth a visit. Experience the local area of Hurghada. Safe to walk through the streets. Very friendly people willing to assist with anything, good food and shopping (not as great as Cairo but worth it).

Do you mean fake brands? then you have to goto Sheraton street in downtown with many shops. how to get there, best way arrange taxi from your hotel if not. Always make sure to agree about the price before your trip.

You should use A1 taxis as they are the most less expensive and use the meter. I would think maybe around 30 le, I use the small buses going to Dahar, they are about 1 and half le, very safe no hassle. Get A1 number from the... More
