Meeting locals

As previously independant travellers we've been seduced by a bargain flight/b&b at a resort hotel at the end of July.
If the boys (15 & 13) want to escape the compound and take a bus into Dahab to find some lads for a kickabout, is there a piece of open ground where the sporty locals tend to hang out? Alternatively are there local housing areas within walking distance of the gates of the Hilton?
Assuming they need to carry ID, I take it that a photocopy of their passport and a contact number of the hotel sufficient? Are there public phones on the streets if they have a problem and if so what change do they need to carry to use them?
The boys only have a word or two of Arabic, but do they teach either English or French in schools here?
Apologies for the jumbled myriad of queries and thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Christmas time with children  (2 Answers)

I am planing my christmas holiday and am thinking about going to Dahab with my 15 and 8 y.o. sons.
We like to swim and snorkel, eating seafood and pizza, playing soccer on the beach, do some shopping.
Do you think that Dahab will be the place for us to spend christmas and new years days with out daddy.
We are used to travel solo in Nicaragua and South America. I made the pady open water in swiss lakes and haven’t been diving for 10 years, perhap will try it again.
Do you know a small hotel, bed and breakfast on the beach, near the town center, that is children friendly, with a small swimming pool? We would also like to make the one or other excursion to the desert, not specially with camels, but perhaps overnight stay in the desert, or will december be to chilly?

Thanks for your help
Jacqueline

No Smoking in Dahab??  (4 Answers)

Here's an interesting (and, for us, important) question!

We're spending about a week in Dahab end March/early April with bed & breakfast at a small hotel in the Assalah area.

We're both non-smokers and as a mild asthma sufferer, my wife finds cigarette smoke particularly unpleasant.

Anyone know any Non-Smoking restaurants nearby? Presumably at this time of year the evening temperature will be too cool to eat out-of-doors?

Help, please, for two difficult travellers!

I am looking forward to doing some walking daily, ideally around 5 - 10 miles.My question is - is it safe to walk outside of the town, either along the coast, or inland on your own? If not are there any organised walks in the area?

What is there to do/see around Dahab?  (1 Answer)

Hi, I'm in Dahab for another two weeks or so and I was wondering if someone could suggest things to do or see around Dahab besides diving and windsurfing.

Please note that we are traveling with a baby so shaky jeep or camel trips are out of the questions... the only thing I have found is the St. Catherine's monastery.

Anything else?
