Whats up at Christmas and New Year

From dec 24th to dec 31st is high season in Dahab – a lot of tourists from all over the world flee from their cold and misty weather into the sunny climate of Dahab. Daily temperature reaches 22 degrees, diving and surfing is still possible for water freaks. Sitting in the sun, you can easily wear T-Shirts and short trousers – and wait for the Christmas eve under palmtrees.

The Moslem inhabitants of Dahab don’t celebrate Christmas – but they accept it as a big event in the life of the Christian tourists and decorate the streets and shops with silver lametta and artificial Christmas trees. Martin Luther’s “christkind” has no chance in Dahab – People here love Santa Claus, smoking Sheesha.
Around new year even the Moslem people celebrate a big event, the “feast”, 50 days after Ramadan – for sure without alcohol.
We collected for you all the bigger locations who offer special programs at Christmas and new year:
