All these camps were struck hard by the lack of Israeli tourism after the Taba Ras Shaitan bombings in 2004 and the later Sharm and Dahab bombs. The places that used to rely on Israeli visitors can seem almost dead and you have a high chance of solitude by the beach in this area. Get in By Boat Ferries run regularly from Nuweiba across to Aqaba in Jordan, bypassing

See The sunrise in the east, rising over the hijaz mountain-range of Saudi Arabia and the aqaba gulf is probably the most spectacular sight in this area. Otherwise, the area is low on historic sights, but offers plenty of interesting mountain landscapes.

Several public bus lines serve the station, including the number 18 and some number 4 buses. Taxis are reluctant to use the meter and will demand high fares of ¥30-40, though with bargaining ¥15 may be possible. Be aware that taxis are not easy to come by in Lijiang.

On 1 August 1843 the settlement was elevated to the category of Vila (town), and received the name of Vila Formosa da Imperatriz, chosen for the beauty of the area and to pay homage to the Empress Teresa Cristina. The municipality of Formosa was only created on 22 February 1844. Other important dates

One of the most beautiful trees, the ipê roxo (tabebuia), or purple ipê, is especially beautiful in the dry season. Sadly most of this vegetation has been eliminated by the need to find hard woods for fenceposts and other uses. Even the typical cerrado vegetation has gradually disappeared and been replaced by vast expanses of soybeans or cattle pasture. See List of plants of Cerrado vegetation of Brazil

Bobo-Dioulasso

– ask someone sitting in the street if you can’t find him. Eat Restaurants Most larger buvettes have eats in the afternoons and evenings, but here are a few notables from the recommendations and favorites of Bobo Stage Goers: * '''La Pacha''' – Personal favorite – has pizzas, Middle Eastern food French cuisine, and is on the pricey side. It faces the Gare by the Marche de Fruits. * '''Sidwaya''' – Hard to miss, as it is right next to the giant train station “Le Gare

Sprawling tables set in a garden space – prices are not outrageous and it is mostly general Burkinabe restaurant fare (some salads, brochettes, sandwiches, soups, rice plates, french fries, plantains, and other such side dishes, and a selection of beers, soft drinks, yogurt available too). * '''Campagnard''' – Noted for it’s brochettes, also has the best salad in Burkina Faso—piles of grated beets and carrots, avocados, hard-boiled eggs and delicious dressing

is the swimming pool – ah, Heaven! Even if you aren’t staying here – shell out the 1000cfa price to go for a dip in the pool. It is worth it. Connect * '''Post Office''' Hard to miss – right off of the Place de la Nation. Operating hours are from 7:30AM–11:30AM and 3PM–5PM. The stamp-selling ladies always seem to be snippy – and matronly. If you need a package wrapped, or need envelopes, or other stationary supplies – there is a mini librairie with nice relaxed people
