Originated Hurghada in the early twentieth century as a gateway for the valleys of desert, inhabited by Bedouin Egyptians working in the fishing and nomadic Arab Arashndi and Juhayna from the Arabian Peninsula and Alababdeh on the coast of the Red Sea and began to grow the discovery of oil in that region in 1913 but that the mutation occurred in the early eighties eighties of the century when began to identify as a magnet for scuba diving enthusiasts, the accelerated growth in the next two decades to become one of the most important tourist cities in Egypt.


 The city of Hurghada is divided into three main neighborhoods: neighborhood scaffold (port) south of the province, which included most of the working population to fish; inspired Dahar and that he includes building maintenance and other government agencies and the commercial market; neighborhood neighborhoods north is an isolated area inhabited by people who had been working mostly at the National Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries, which was created in 1930 or the youth center next to the Institute.

.Hurghada has evolved in the past years developed rapidly due to its transformation to a major tourist city on the coast of the Red Sea. The province was experiencing in the years prior to the spread of tourism from the weakness of key services, where the city was suffering constantly from a lack of fresh water which was being transported from the provinces of the south in tankers of water, as the city was suffering from blackouts outlet, as well as the suffering certain areas of isolation full and particular area of ​​aquaculture and given the focus of all services in the neighborhood of Dahar and the lack of public transport linking the area in the city, was the population and children rely primarily on vehicles transporting the sand to go to school or markets in the city.

And is considered by many residents of Hurghada that period that preceded the emergence of tourism, which was the population live under difficult conditions as much better than the current period, where the transformation of the city of Hurghada to the city to attract tourism to the high prices of services and higher housing prices and the proliferation of speculative prices of land and apartments and the spread of favoritism in the distribution of land and the spread of crime because of the steady increase in population and the spread of moral corruption which he links to many of the conditions of work in the field of tourism.
