The beginning of El Mamsha-promenade
El Mamsha is a beautiful walking boulevard. It’s a place where both locals and tourists shop and spend time. It’s a perfect place for a nice evening stroll. While walking by the Mamsha, you can do the shopping and enjoy the atmosphere.
There are big souvenirs shops with fixed prices and smaller shops right next to each other at the beginning of Mamsha. A good place to start shopping in El Mamsha is Mc Donalds (location). There are also good shops at the end of Mamsha boulevard.
If you like to walk, start walking from Mc Donald’s and walk to the end of Mamsha. This is what I do often.
El Dahar bazaar (Souk)
Everyone visiting Hurghada should visit in El Dahar. It’s the oldest part of the city and there you can experience real Egypt. From El Dahar you find a big souk, which is filled with things from household appliances to scarves.

Shopping malls in Hurghada
In case you don’t feel comfortable with haggling, you can still shop in Hurghada. There are a few big shopping centres in the Hurghada area, where are fixed prices. I personally prefer shopping in shopping centres, since I don’t need to buy any souvenirs or other touristic stuff.
Senzo Mall Hurghada
For me, Senzo Mall is the best place to shop in Hurghada. It is a shopping centre, located about 15 kilometres away from the city centre (location). It’s open every day from 10.00 am. until 12.00 pm.
You can get there by taxi, by microbus or Senzos own shuttle bus. I recommend Senzos own bus. Shuttle bus between Senzo Mall and Hurghada operates daily from 10.00 am. to 12.15 pm. (00.15).
Senzo bus goes through Hurghada, from El Dahar-Sakkala-Mamsha to Senzo mall and back, between 30 minutes. You can stop the bus anywhere. Last time I used it it was 4.75 Egyptian pounds/person/one way. Compared to taxi it’s very cheap.
Last time when I went to Senzo Mall by taxi, I paid 70 Egyptian pounds from Sakkala to Senzo. Getting there by taxi is much easier than coming back. Orange taxis are not allowed to drive inside the parking area, so they wait outside next to the gates.
Coming next: Restaurants and shops in Senzo Mall
When you leave the mall and want to take a taxi, first you have to negotiate with a taxi guy, who gives you prices. The prices they ask for are ridiculously high. Of course, they ask at least double compared to what you paid when you came. This is the only place to get a taxi away and they know it.
This is why I recommend you to use Senzo bus. Buses are usually full, but there is always room for everyone. Bus leaves from the door, closest to Kidzo kids playing area. When you go outside, you see the place.
Restaurants in Senzo Mall
In case you get hungry while shopping around, you find the international fast-food restaurants and other restaurants from Senzo mall. It’s nice to eat something and continue shopping.
Shops in Senzo Mall
Like said earlier, the shops in Senzo Mall have fixed prices. No need to haggle. Some of the shops are really expensive, but there are shops at affordable prices as well. My favourite shops in Senzo Mall are Mango, Ravin’ and DejaVu.
There are also a big toy store and KIDZO playing area for kids. Kids will enjoy the Senzo mall.
