Wie man 2 Tage in Dahab verbringt

Organisiert von Theodora SutcliffeA freelance writer and recovering nomad, Theodora divides her time between Britain and Bali. With bylines including CNN, BBC, the Guardian, Discover, Lonely Planet, and National Geographic Traveler, she’s working on a book, still blogs once in a while at, and spends far too much time on Twitter.

With two days in Dahab, you can sample the Red Sea’s wonders, go on a desert adventure, and spend time with the Bedouin. You can also venture farther afield, to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of St. Catherine’s Monastery—and Mt. Sinai, a mountain many believe is the place where Moses received the Ten Commandments. Here are your options.

Day 1: Morning

Discover the Red Sea’s pristine visibility, vibrant coral, and many aquarium fish. Ride in a submersible or glass-bottom boat, or join a snorkeling or scuba diving tour. Signature sites include the Blue Hole, the Canyon, and Three Pools, some of which can be reached by camel safari along the coast.

Day 1: Afternoon

Embark on a miniature desert adventure, by horse, camel, or all-terrain vehicle—or in a 4WD with a scarf-clad Bedouin at the wheel. Roaring through on a 4-wheeler or lolloping along on a camel, don’t miss the area’s rugged slot canyons, or “wadi,” including the popular Colored Canyon.

Day 1: Night

With a small-hours departure planned for tomorrow’s sunrise climb, enjoy an early dinner, perhaps a seafood feast at a waterfront restaurant with views across the Red Sea. Watch the sunset tint the tranquil waters pink and purple, then catch a few hours of sleep before your trip to St. Catherine’s begins.

Day 2: Morning

Reach Mt. Sinai in the wee hours, and hike to the 7,497-foot (2,285-meter) peak in the cool of the night. Savor epic sunrise views across rolling mountains as you sip hot, sweet tea or coffee. A tiny chapel marks the spot where Abrahamic religions believe Moses communed with God.

Day 2: Afternoon

Descend Mt. Sinai and explore St. Catherine’s Monastery, a fortified edifice with a history dating back to the fourth century and a library of precious manuscripts. View a wealth of relics, including a plant that’s allegedly descended from Moses’ Burning Bush, before returning to Dahab for a lazy afternoon by the pool (or on the beach).

Day 2: Night

Spend your last evening in Dahab in a traditional Bedouin encampment in the desert. Feast on flatbreads, Bedouin barbecue, soft drinks, and sweet tea around the fire, then savor the absence of light pollution as a million stars bloom before your eyes.
