|Subject: Re:Sinai Peninsula Tips? Sharm El Sheikh and Dahab|
In Feb. 2000, as part of a group, we stayed at the Sonesta Beach Resort (5*) in Sharm El Sheikh and at Catherine Plaza (4*) in St. Catherine's (very near Mt. Sinai.) Both hotels were lovely. The advantage of staying in St. Catherine's was that we were able to get to Mt. Sinai for the early morning climb to see the sunrise at 5 o"clock, go back to the hotel for breakfast, and then return to St. Catherine's monastery which at that time was open only from 9-12. The climb on Mt. Sinai and the visit to the monastery (especially the original library with its rare manuscripts) were unforgettable.
