Hurghadah International Airport
Hurghada is one of the most important cities in the Red Sea Governorate in Egypt. It is one of the country's main tourist centers located on the Red Sea coast. It was founded in the early 20th century, and until recently it was a small fishing village. But since the 1980s, Egyptian and foreign investors have continuously expanded to become the unique coastal resort on the Red Sea. Hotels and resorts provide water recreational ways to practice windsurfing, yachting, diving, and snorkeling.
El Quseir is one of the Egyptian gateways, and one of the oldest cities on the western coast of the Red Sea. In the events, it was understood by various names, such as "Thought" in the pharaonic era, Leucos Limen (white port in Greek) in the Hellenistic and Ptolemaic era, and Portus Albus in the Roman period. In the Islamic period, it was given the nickname El Quseir, which means"a small palace or fortress".
Quseir is positioned between Marsa Alam and Hurghada and is considered an essential port. Several travelers went to get ivory, leather, and fragrance. During the Islamic and Ottoman periods, Egyptians and Muslims from North Africa traveled from Qusayr as pilgrims to Mecca. It was also the only port that imported coffee from Yemen. During the French occupation of Egypt, Qusayr served as a point of arrival for Arabs and Muslims from the Hijaz to Egypt
