Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, is reportedly Mubarak’s new home. Aside from having a some outdated vacation resorts, and being the new digs for President Hosni Mubarak, is a popular resort city on the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula, in South Sinai Governorate, Egypt.

So what has Mubarak reportedly left Cairo for? Maybe a burger at the Sharm el-Sheikh Hard Rock Cafe just sounded really good.

Sharm el-Sheikh features quite a few major hotels such as Four Seasons, Marriott, Sheraton, Ritz-Carlton and even a Holiday Inn.

Tourists from Egypt, around the region, and the rest of the world visit for Sharm el-Sheikh casinos, diving, long swaths of natural beaches, year-round dry and temperate climate, and discos.

What better place for an embattled President to “retire”?

This won’t be the first time Sharm el-Sheikh has garnered attention for something other than being a resort city. The 2005 Sharm el-Sheikh terrorists attacks killed 88 people, mostly Egyptian tourists, and significantly set the local economy back.

Egypt’s tourism industry is suffering because of the current turmoil, but with reports of Mubarak resigning, even if it is to Sharm el-Sheikh, it isn’t unreasonable to assume this popular tourist destination will rise again.
