Dahab is today best known for being one of the most exquisite diving destinations in Egypt and the world. With stunning turquoise waters, colorful sunsets and a low-key and laid-back environment, Dahab has established itself as a must-visit Red Sea resort town.
Yet, Dahab, which translates to ‘gold’ in Arabic, wasn’t always a sunny tourist village. The town was once a Bedouin fishing village, with its beaches scattered with huts and a diverse local community.
In an attempt to highlight just some of the beautiful people of Dahab, from Bedouins to expatriates, the video ‘Alhamdulillah| About a village called Dahab’ above was filmed two years ago and has recently resurfaced on social media.
