Hurghada wants to develop like Venice
The authorities of the Egyptian resort city of Hurghada presented a plan for its development for the next 30 years
Hurghada is a major city in coast of the Red Sea, the capital of the Egyptian province (governorate) of the Red Sea. The city has long been famous as a center of attraction for tourists; up to 5 million guests come here every year. But the local authorities do not want to stop there.
It was decided to create a high-speed metro in the city and develop a railway connection. In particular, it is planned to build a railway to Hurghada from Cairo (about 400 km). In addition, the city wants to equip berths for yachts and helipads in each of the hotels.
Also in the plans: an amusement park, a safari zone, an opera house, a congress center, a university. Another idea is the creation of bulk island resorts, like in Venice, in a large lagoon of the Red Sea.
