@Yehuda
When crossing to Taba:
Bring a pen.
If you have luggage israel might make you pay the 106 shekel exit fee. You can receive a refund on your way out if you save the stub and show your hilton reservation.
When leaving egypt you need an exit stamp and (currently) they give you those in the arrivals hall.
The hilton is usually cheap or 5,000 hilton points.
Everyone knows your jewish.
The casinos use USD and have exchange places in them.
You can also use visa/mc for a 2% fee.(purchase, not CA)

I am looking for a place for a friend to rent for a few days not near the beach but near a shoul  any idea what area to look for ? and where is there a place to daven and learn ?
Most of the hotels have shuls but they probably dont have active minyanim this season. There is a chabad that has active minyanim and shiurim all year. Dont exactly remember the location but u can google it

Planning a drive to mitzpe Ramon, timna park and on to Eilat.  Any specific routes better than the other? In terms of view and ease? Also any recommendations of anything specific else to stop and see?

There are multiple chabads, but some are not chabadish, just have a Chabad rabbi but the shul is entirely safardi or mizrachi.
I'm not who you think I am.

Sounds like a pretty good route. Another option would be to take the back entrance to Eilat and on the way do the Red Canyon trail which is close to the Egyptian border but its not as good as Timna.
