Egypt: Dahab

Laid-back backpacker's haven
Tuesday 18 December: The slow ferry docks at Neweiba, Egypt's gulf port, at 5:00am - that was quick. But, we are kept on board for a further two hours until the customs officers arrive, it's not the ferry that's slow! Eventually I get a shared taxi south to the laid-back beach resort of Dahab where independent travellers are still the rule rather than the exception. The restaurant-lined beach is back-dropped by the desolate desert mountains of the Sinai Peninsula, and the Bedouin run compound-style Golden Star Hotel is my kind of place, I'll stay a couple of days.
