    • Moulid Abu El-Haggag

      Luxor May 4, 2015 at 1:54 PM

      I'll be in Luxor the first week in June (hot!) and came across some information about the Moulid of Abu El-Haggag. I understand that it's a huge celebration and, if I'm counting back from Ramadan correctly, it should occur about June 4. Does anyone know if that's correct? And is it something that I want to reconfigure my travel plans to Dendera and Abydos to see? Thanks

    • Egypt 2015 trip concerns

      Hurghada Apr 30, 2015 at 2:30 AM

      Hello! Me and my boyfriend are planning to go on holiday to Hurghada in June 2015 but I’m a bit concerned about whether this is the best time to go to Egypt specially because we also want to visit the pyramids in Cairo. We are thinking of joining an excursion from Hurghada to Cairo by bus and according to what I read it’s 7 hours distance and I am a bit scared of what could happen during the journey.
      Anyone who have been recently to Hurghada and Cairo can tell me if it is safe to visit? Did you witness the downsides of the political distress and protests?
      Also, provided that we do go to Egypt in 2015 do you recommend buying activity packs from UK agencies or by contacting the local ones?
      Many Thanks!

      Hi everyone,

      With the ongoing political stresses and terrorist threats is Cairo safe nowadays for tourists? What about a bus tour from Hurghada to Cairo? Would that be safe?

    • eclipse

      by EgyptEclipse Online Now Mar 5, 2006 at 1:09 PM

      Hi Eclipse People,
      I too am going to see the eclipse. I've been thinking about this eclipse ever since 1999 when i tried to see the eclipse in Europe but it was cloudy. I'm very excited.

      Does anyone know yet if we will be able to be on the plateau west of Sallum? If not, can we get a special permit? Can we just hike up there and camp? Does anyone want to join me?

      Will

    • Hotel for Eclipse 2006

      by mikebrinn Online Now Aug 16, 2005 at 10:58 AM

      It looks like the hotels in this area are filling up fast for this event.

      Anyone know of a three-five star hotel with availability MArch 28-29,2006?

      Or alternatively, how long is the drive from Alexandria to Saluum, and how about a good hotel in Alexandria?

      Thanks!

      Mike
