Sunrise, Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt

Sharm El Sheikh is a beautiful resort town near the southern end of the Sinai peninsula in Egypt. It's also considered one of the best diving and snorkeling destinations in the world. Sadly, events have caused a severe downturn in tourist visits to Sharm and other Egyptian resorts.

The uprising against Hosni Mubarak is considered the main source of the problem, which created a great deal of uncertainty, and uncertainty is not good for tourism. Sadly, tourism still has not returned to pre-revolution numbers. A couple of shark attacks near Sharm El Sheikh is considered only a minor contributing factor. (!)
