    • Halfaya Sollum War cemetary

      Egypt Jan 4, 2017 at 5:33 PM

      I am considering a trip to Egypt maybe in the next year or so. I will most likely do an organised to see the pyramids and the Nile, etc. While I am there Inwould also like to visit the Halfaya Sollum War cemetary as my great uncle is buried there. (He was killed in action in WW2)
      I know you can get buses from Alexandria or I was also considering staying a night at Mersa Matruh which is closer. I am just not sure about travelling there on my own as it's very close to the Libyan border. Has anyone been there or have any suggestions?

    • US citizen transiting

      Egypt Dec 31, 2016 at 1:48 PM

      Do I need to obtain a visa in advance? I am flying from Johannesburg to Copenhagen via Cairo. Plane lands at 5:35 a.m. and next flight leaves at 10 a.m. US citizen. I have read differing reports that say I need to have a visa but cannot determine if it can be obtained online ahead of time or upon arrival. I know the policy changed effective May 15, 2015 saying you had to obtain in advance but then that was changed until an electronic system was to be put in place.

      Two nights in Cairo

      Cairo Dec 25, 2016 at 6:07 AM

      Before joining a Nile cruise I'll spent two nights in Cairo. While the days are planned for the major sights, I wonder, wether there is something to do in the evening... Makes it sense to visit some of the other sights (especially the coptic or islamic ones, which I can't visit during daytime) after sunset? Or what would you recommend to do in the evening?

      Safety - Query

      Egypt Dec 27, 2016 at 7:57 AM

      Egypt is not going away from mind and we have been waiting for a while for safety to return. It is concerning reading an incident on 11th Dec. However, wanting to know from anyone who travelled recently how is the experience. We would limit Cairo now but has always been interested in visiting Luxor too - what are best options?

      Safe travel in Sohag for a single woman??

      by swings Online Now Mar 19, 2007 at 6:22 AM

      Hi All,
      Well, now that I've just finished posting that Cairo is a pretty safe place for single women, I'm trying to figure out if it's safe for a single woman to travel withing Sohag. I'm convinced that the 1st class trains are probably ok for women, although my husband isn't so sure. But IF I got myself to Sohag, then is there any safe mode of transportation within Sohag?

      And has anyone had experiences with hotels in Sohag? IS there a hotel in Sohag (I know there are in Akhmim, but that is pretty far away from where I want to be)? I think there is a hostel, but I wouldn't want to stay in a hostel.

      Thank you for your help: I know there is always someone out there who has "been there: done that"!
