    • 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?

      a day in Port Said, Egypt

      by crazyman2 Online Now Jun 23, 2011 at 12:31 PM

      Hi

      We're on a Princess cruise in July/August and one of our stops is Port Said in Egypt.
      Now, Princess offer excursions down to see the Great Pyramid etc. It's many hours there and back by coach ---not our way of seeing such wonders! We shall visit the Sphinx and co. on another trip, maybe land based or even a river cruise.

      So, there we will be in Port Said for a day, 06:00 until 20:00 and okay we can knock 30 minutes off at each end for dis/embarking.
      What can we do there? I've looked at the VT pages...mmm...limited. Any ideas?

      Yes, we know about cruisecritic.com ---any VT ideas would be appreciated!

      If we have no luck then we'll just need to stay on board the Pacific Princess and indulge ourselves ---but we'd rather not!

      Thanks!

      by SoCoFAS Online Now May 27, 2011 at 5:48 PM

      Is there anyone who can tell me if there are some ferries from the East bank to the West bank of the Suez canal ? If yes, where can I find information on them (schedules, prices for cars and bicycles).
      I am planning a bicycle trip, with a jeep as back up behind, from Belgium to Kenya for the promotion of the SoCoFAS trust(non profit organisation).
