|Beach of Magawish Resort, Hurghada, Egypt|
This week, it was difficult to avoid discussions about the opening of Egypt's first alcohol-free hotel in Hurghada. Hurghada, a major tourist city along the Red Sea has some of the most beautiful beaches in Southern Egypt. Not only is this new hotel alcohol free, but it also houses a woman's only section in the hotel. Of course, this leads to much gossip and speculation about the future of tourism in Egypt. Is this the next trend of tourism? Will the bikini, or even women, be next to be forbidden from these beaches?
