travelling to Al Minya on train

by Amuraan

I am planning to go to Al(El) Minya)in October. As I understand I will be taking the train from Cairo to Luxor for El Minya. I am trying to find out the train time tables from cairo so that I could organize my flight from U.K.choosing the right timne so that I would not wait for hours for the train to go to El Minya.
Does anybody know these details or advise a practical link which will clearly show me the times?
Also I read that we tourists are not able to travel during the day!!! and we have to travel on night train. Is that the case? DOes anybody know?

many thanks
Love & Light

As I understand it, only the night train from Cairo to Luxor is available for tourists because it is the only one which carries security and Egyptian law requires this.

has loads of the information/links about times, tickets etc (including a way to get round the security restrictions, if you wish)

Travel Tips for Cairo

Le Caire et le Sinaï

by MarieGirod

Me laisser happer par la vie trépidante du Caire, et la quitter régulièrement pour me rendre dans le Sinaï. Cairo is full of life, positive and negative energy, Cairo never sleep.
Le Caire est un concentré de vie en tout genre, une ville géante pleine de contraste, qui ne dort jamais.

The Step Pyramid Complex...

by batman2000bc

The Step Pyramid Complex

Saqqara Around 2630 B.C., in the 3rd Dynasty, a man named Djoser-Netcherikhe assumed the throne of Egypt. He made his capital just south of what is now Cairo, The Greeks called this place, Memphis. Like all pharaohs he began making preparations for his afterlife. He assigned a scholar named Imhotep the job of building his tomb.

. . . . .Imhotep's plans would incorporate many new ideas. The building material of the time was mud brick, but this would not suit a pharaoh as mighty as Djoser-Netcherikhe. Imhotep had a radical idea, he would use stone, a material never used before in large scale building projects. Originally the plan called for a mastaba tomb, a design the Egyptians had used for centuries. Imhotep had a better idea, he began stacking mastaba on top of mastaba until he realized the design of the Step Pyramid. It was a shape the ancient Egyptians recognized as the legendary mound of creation that had risen out of the primordial ocean of chaos. It was also the shape of things to come. For almost 1000 years the pharaohs built pyramids as their eternal resting places. Abandoning them when they realized that under these giant monuments of extravagant wealth, they could no longer protect their afterlives from plunder.

a little "cultural" surprise

by pretty33555

by the way, we were a little bit surprised when we needed a bust to get to Sphinx as it turned out to be that it is situated in 2km-s away from the Pyramids :D
I mean, that it's different thing on pictures ...lol :D

Traffic

by paradisedreamer

Well Cairo is a busy frenetic city and traffic is terrible, it can take forever to get around. One of my fondest memories is driving around (or rather sitting in traffic) and just observing local life. It is so different to the west and since it was my first time in a Middle Eastern country I was more than happy to people watch.

Baksheesh

by kmscpa

Egyptians expect you to pay baksheesh for almost anything. They will constantly grab your bags, offer you towels in the bathroom, or be a fake tour guide to get to your money. Tipping in Egypt is even more common than in the USA. I don't mind tipping our real tour guides, but many commoners are only annoying and will expect a tip. Don't be afraid to not tip for non value added services. I would also take many small bills because you are tipping 10 times a day and small bills are hard to come by. They will accept almost any western currency as baksheesh.
