Barbro A :

SlovikEddie :
"more touristy area is sinai."
Happy :
"In Sinai you can see and visit more places including saint Cathrine, Dahab, Sharm el Sheikh and Nowebaa. The landscape is also very beautiful."
Moonrise :
"sinai is popular with tourists and egyptians. siwa is a v quiet place place which sticks to old traditions of bedwins . some tourists go when they seek solitude. safaga is nice but not that entertaining . make your choice according to your nature."
Wise Heart :
"Sinai of course Other places are good but not like Sinai. It has many things to see, visit and do."
lord-k :
"Sinai u will like it"

"It all depends on what you are looking for. In the Sinai, I've been to Nuweiba and Sharm el Sheikh. Nuweiba was very quiet and laid back, not many tourists, not much to do other than soak up the sun. Sharm was awesome. So many things to do: swimming, snorkling, diving, trips to Mt Sinai and Bedouin camps, etc. I met a few wonderful Egyptians at a Bedouin cafe there (I'm still in touch with a couple of them). It is very touristy, though. If you want beaches and swimming, go there. Siwa is very quite and laid back, but there is a lot to do there. My first morning, I came out of the hotel and found a taxi (a donkey cart with TAXI painted on the side) to take me around. That day, FatHi, my 17 year old taxi driver took me to most of the major sights in and near the town, and then set me up with a driver for a trip to the desert the following day. I loved it so much I spent several more days there, going to different springs around the oasis and the surrounding desert, and sleeping in the desert under the stars. My only companions were my taxi driver (he started to think of me as a big sister and was having a lot of fun talking to me) and Nasser, my 4x4 driver, a 19 year old that seemed to know the desert like the back of his hand. I still get emails from Nasser every once in a while. I loved my experiences in both Sharm and Siwa. I would love to go back to both places and will some day. No matter where you go, you will have a great time."
fozio :
"Safaga is the first to eliminate and easily. Sinai is huge, there are so many cities and resorts, you need to be more specific about the destination. Sinai has everything there is to look for in a holiday from the best diving to great clubbing, all depends on where exactly. Siwa is very different, it is an oasis in the middle of the desert. People go there when looking for a unique experience. Desert safaris, bedouin nightlife and food, some types of healing etc. which is better? it is really up to u to decide"
Le Tussock :

Do I take a train? How long does it take? Is it a scheduled service?

spider :
"Transport options include buses, trains and boats, and even camels, donkeys and horses.Then again you could always fly. Cairo is approx 560km from Safaga"
ahmed Helmy :
"i dont think that there are a train there but iam sure that u can get a bus like super jet (transportation company) there others but i think this will be the safest u might pay not more than 150 LE the distance take from cairo to safaga 15 hour by bus"
ancient :
"I'M sure there is no train lines between SAFAGA and anywhere else in Egypt you can take the bus ( super jet ) its about 60 pound and around 9 hours"
Hophop :
"i really wondered how those people could answer your question with that fake info. i agree with that one who said no train from safaga, so the you have 2 way to go from safaga direct to Cairo but bus, so you can go get ticket from ticket office know exactly time for the bus and be on time there, distance could be maximum 6 hours and half, price could be around 12 U$ or less depond on the bus. there are anthor way if you have travel agent there you can check with them to arrange private car or join with some other people who wil go to Cairo and have a day trip there cause soo many do this trip from hurgada. anthor option you go to Luxor, it is 3 hours or Qina 2 hours and you can take train from there. wish u a nice trip"

Le Salem express est un ferry de 115 mètres de long, 18 mètres de larges qui dans la nuit du 15 au 16 décembre 1991, alors qu'il approche de Port-Safaga, heurte violement un récif.
