Mohamed Abu Shady, the minister responsible for investigating supply crimes, said that offenders could be fined up to LE2000 and sentenced to between one and five years in jail for ignoring the price controls.

We just returned from vacation in El Gouna.

There are fantastic all inclusive deals right now in Gouna and I would recommend the Panorama Bungalows Resort as it is fantastic.

Book through the Hotel desk itself to save commission fees on agents on

They had about 30% occupancy with English and Russian and German tourists.

The prices for Gouna and Hurghada are a lot cheaper than Sokhna right now so if you want the Gouna Experience get it now before prices return to normal.
