Yesterday airflights.co.uk reported an upsurge in cheap flight enquiries and holiday bookings for the island of Malta in the Mediterranean as clubbers look for somewhere else to get the party vibe but without the sky high costs of visiting the world famous clubs of Ibiza. Another growing party hotspot is Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt. The Red Sea Resort on the Sinai peninsula has become a favourite for holiday makers looking for year round sunshine, suburb hotels and fantastic value for money particularly for those who choose one of the many All inclusive hotel packages say airflights. Sharm has great beaches, stunning hotels, year round sunshine with winter temperatures in the mid twenties and hitting highs of forty degrees in the July and August school holiday period. That serious sunbathing say airflights, and care should be taken not to overdo it. The Sinai peninsula is a free zone and a free visa stamp on arrival is all that is needed providing you aren't leaving Sharm, however if you choose to leave Sharm perhaps to sample one of the many excursions to the Valley of the Kings, or Cairo to see the Pyramids then you will need to pay on arrival for the tourist visa which is approximately £15 per person. This also applies if you intend to go on a Dive boat to the legendry Ras Mohammed national park which offers spectacular scuba diving. AS well as family holidays Sharm is getting a reputation for clubbers who as with those choosing Malta are looking for somewhere else to enjoy a vibrant club scene without the high costs associated with a clubbing holiday to Ibiza. Sharm has the benefit of being a year round resort as well say airflights.
