Qatari Diar spend in Egypt tourism, realty crosses $6bn
Al Saad
Al Saad

Qatari Diar’s investments in Egypt have exceeded $6bn, making it one of the largest investors in the African nation’s tourism and real estate sectors.
Among Qatari Diar’s major projects in Egypt is the $1bn Nile Corniche development in Cairo. The company is currently developing three other projects also: a $450mn resort at Sharm El Sheikh, an industrial area and free zone at Burj Al Arab and a 35sq km development (Hurghada Project) at Sharm el-Arab on the Red Sea.

Speaking at Qatari Diar’s office opening at Cairo, chief executive officer Ghanim bin Saad al-Saad said the company’s projects in Egypt have a special significance as it was initiating signature developments and facilitating vibrant new communities on an unprecedented scale.

“These will help in creating permanent and temporary jobs in the region in addition to reinvigorating the tourism industry that has driven the Egyptian economy for decades,” al-Saad said.

Spectacular diving on the wreck of the El Arish El Tor, Safaga

Arish Deck
Arish Deck

Captain Karmi starts the two outboards and the speed boat ‘Mimi’ roars to life. It takes only a few minutes until we reach the site. A back roll gets us into the water where we descend on the line.
All I can see in the beginning is blue water and a school of fusilier but as I continue down, at 17 metres we reach the wreck. She came to rest on her starboard side and we start our dive right at the bow. The name ‘El Arish El Tor’ is still legible and the anchor chain is covered with soft corals.

We dive past what has once been the bridge, descend further to 35 metres and shine our torches beneath the vessel. The orange rescue boats are tucked underneath and life vests are hanging all over the place. It’s an eerie scene, but fortunately the sinking of this ship did not cost any lives.
On the chimney we discover the logo of the Sayed Nasr lines and I spot a blue spotted sting ray that has made its home here while a very large school of soldier fish attempt to hide in the wreck.
We swim through what once was a shaded seating area. Now only metal frames and the roof of corrugated metal are left; fire sponges and purple fan coral give it new life. As we round the stern the two enormous propellers are silhouetted against the surface, covered with huge soft corals and I stop to take a few pictures. On our way back we encounter thousands (!) of yellow tail barracudas that are forming an actual layer of fish over the top of the wreck, sweeping back and forth as some large mackerels shoot through them in pursuit.

It’s time to ascend and during our safety stop we watch a group of Indian mackerels fishing for plankton, their mouths wide open as they swim in synchronised splendour. As we finally break the surface the captain is ready to help us with our kit and during the swift ride back we start to discuss all the things we’ve see on this dive! We continue recalling more and more details all the way through the beautifully cooked BBQ at the Safaga Beach Club restaurant until it’s time for our next dive.

Protection Against Sun
Body and Soul



Protecting your skin from the rays of sun is an everyday necessity. The best way to keep your skin looking younger is, habituating to apply sunscreen lotions before going out. Following are some simple steps to follow on everyday basis to protect the skin from sun's rays.

Apart from the sunscreen solutions there are some other factors, to protect your body from the sun's rays. Following are such of it's kind.

1. Avoid wearing Synthetic wear in summer. Cotton dresses help our skin by absorbing the Harmful UV rays from sun.
2. Light colored clothes are advisable to wear, as the dark shades absorb easily the UV rays. Light colors really helps you looking better in hot summer…!
3. To help reduce your risk of skin damage from sunlight, try to minimize your exposure to the sun between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., when the sun's rays are strongest.
4. Those who are under medications need to avoid getting exposed to sunlight. This is because; most of the drugs start reacting to the hot sun's rays, when the body gets exposed to sun.
5. Drinking black tea…. helps your skin really! Black tea has an astringent and its tannins are great soothing sunburns.

Helpful Hint on sun care:

Your sunglasses provide some eye protection. Choose sunglasses that block maximum of UV light. Note that polarized lenses and mirror-coated lenses don't necessarily reduce UV absorption unless specifically labeled. All sunglasses offer more protection for your eyes than offering only style to your eyes.
