Shopping-tips:

A: Not far away from the ProCenter in Hurghada we have a big mall (Senzo Mall). There you will find a pharmacy, a big supermarket, a lot of brand shops (Reebok, Adidas, Tommy Hilfiger, Levis, Mango etc.) and more Cafés and Fast food restaurants. Popular shopping’s and souvenirs are decoration, spices, carpets, T-Shirts, shishas, decorated glass perfume bottles, slippers, hammocks/hanging chairs, towels and a lot of other things…

Nightlife:

A: At the ProCenter in Marsa Alam (Hotel Equinox) we organize our legendary BBQ and Beachparty on demand (min 8 persons). The nearest town, Port Galip, is approx. 30 minutes drive away by taxi. However the nightlife there is not comparable with Hurghada.
Hurghada (almost) never sleeps! You can do something at 11pm or 4am, there are always some restaurants, bars, clubs and discotheques, that are still open. The staff of the ProCenter will provide you with good restaurant and party tips!
