Intro :: Travelling in Egypt

Egypt must be one of the most fascinating countries to visit! Ancient pyramids in Giza, Islamic architecture in Cairo, royal tombs in Thebes, sacred temples in Luxor, and lovely beaches along the Red Sea - Egypt has it all!

Although most of the people get there with a previously booked tour package, getting around in Egypt is fairly easy. Trains are running along the River Nile Valley from Cairo to Aswan several times a day, including the deluxe overnight sleeper train which is very practical for travellers despite the high fare. Alternatively buses can be used to get to most destinations although sometimes they have to be in police escorted convoys due to terrorist threats. Now this sounds more serious than it really is, Egypt is now considered a reasonably save place for the independent traveller too.
