Often people ask about the spirit of Dahab, its not something that is easy to explain. Dahab is not a big tourist resort, it is not full of multinational companies or multi-story hotels. It is small and peaceful.
Many people have passed through Dahab, intending to leave and ending up making it home. I was one of those people. I first visited Dahab to complete my PADI Divemaster qualification, the first professional level in Scuba Diving. I returned a year later to work my first season. I met a boy.
Ten years, marriage and two children later Residence Arabesque was born.
This is a wonderful short video by Michael Zomer which captures the spirit of Dahab so well.
