The Egyptian coastal resort of Hurghada
has received a massive winter boost with European tourists looking to escape the chilly weather, according to a report.
Russians, Germans and Brits have all been flocking to the Red Sea resort in their droves, according to All Headline News.
This has led hotel managers and resort operators to claim that the resort is booming thanks to its more temperate climate.
However, one resort manager has claimed that it is the welcoming and relaxed atmosphere of Hurghada that is pulling in holidaymakers.
Ashraf Ahmed, from the Dana Beach Resort, told All Headline News: "This is great for hotel and for Egypt because at a time when we usually do not have that many visitors, the temperatures in Europe are very cold so people want to come here and get some warm weather.
"They have everything here that they need. What makes it easier and more appealing to them is the fact that much of our staff speak their language."
Mr Ahmed added that this gives holidaymakers "an easier trip" and ensures that they get the most out of their time in Hurghada.
