Holidays are supposed to be fun and relaxing, a chance to see the world and forget your cares of everyday life and a holiday to Sharm el Shiekh is one to remember. For adults they want to see beauty, culture, history. Kids though, kids just don’t care most of the time. Unless it is something they are specifically interested all they care about is fun. As well they should, but this makes it hard enrich children while on vacation. This can be hard in a place like Egypt, one of the world’s oldest traceable civilizations; there is so much history here you can’t pass up the chance to enrich as well as have fun!
Glass Bottom Boat Ride
A fun way to teach kids about the diverse sea life of the Red Sea is to take them on a glass bottom boat ride. Not only do they get a fun boat right and to see the life below them like a top down aquarium, but you can have a guide there to tell them about the different kinds of life and what they see. Nothing is more interactive than real life, in real time and you lose the museum feel that aquariums can have. This is ideal especially for younger kids that can’t scuba or snorkel yet.
Ras Mohammed National Park
This is an aqua park, full of reefs and sea life. If you want to do anything water related, and check out the Red Sea. This is the place to go scuba or snorkeling. If your family loves the water, boating, snorkeling or just floating around this is a great place to go, kids get the fun of water, and the education of what lives in it, how reefs are made and how to protect them. It is one of the best parks you can go to in Sharm El Shiekh.
There is so much culture and history in this land that you can almost just pick a direction and go a day and come back and you will encounter something. Giza is of course one of the most well-known sites to go see. However, it is not the only one, St Catherine’s Monastery is right near the city of Sharm El Shiekh and is one of the oldest and first Christian churches in the area. This can be hard to do with younger kids or teens though since it is a historical site, but if you are getting a little Closter phobic in the resort a day trip or two to a site like this could be just want your family needs.
Ok this one is not really educational, but it is fun. Holiday trips should be fun, and if you do nothing but educational events and attractions you will very quickly burn your kids out and they will end up hating the trip and not take anything from it. So some just pure fun once in a while is a good thing and this massive water park is just the ticket. Let them run around and zip down slides, tire themselves out so the next day you can do something more laid back, like a relaxing museum maybe.
