Travel to Egypt
Despite the scorching heat and occasional political turbulence, this place urges every tourist to know how to go to Egypt, as it one of the most beautiful countries in the world. The Land of the Pharaohs has been frequently visited by travellers, adventurers and history enthusiasts from every corner of the world. Egypt has multiple international airports including one at the capital city of Cairo, Alexandria, Luxor, Sharm el-Sheikh, Hurghada and Aswan – all have their own. However, flights to Egypt from India mostly land at the Cairo International Airport. From there, one can roam in and around the country via bus or train.
Cairo and Luxor are the two main airports in Egypt, with Aswan, Alexandria and Sharm el-Sheikh as close runner-ups. Sharm el-Sheikh is mostly visited directly by those interested in a vacation in Red Sea. However, Cairo Airport boasts most of the airlines operating flights to and from India. All the major Indian cities with airports have frequent flights to Cairo. Flights from Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai and Kolkata to Egypt are very common. The fastest flight to Egypt is from Mumbai. This is the only nonstop flight to Cairo from Mumbai and it runs three days a week – Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday. The flight takes around 6 hours 40 minutes and is operated by Egyptair. The next best option to go to Egypt by air is the one-stop flight from Delhi by Kuwait Airways and Egypt Air via Kuwait City, which takes around 8 hours. From Chennai there are many one-stop flights as well.
There are no feasible ways to go from India to Egypt by train. But inside the country, Egyptian Railways are very easy to travel in from one city to another. Cairo to Alexandria is the most common line, but there are trains to Luxor, Suez, Port Said and Aswan as well. The scenery, dotted with palms and fields and sometimes the Nile, is beautiful, to say the least.
If you look at the Egypt map, you can see it is located right at the border of Asia, over-pouring a little bit onto the part called Middle-East. So it can be said that theoretically, Egypt can be driven to from India. But the distance of the Egypt route by road from India is nearly 4500 kilometres. The route goes from India through Pakistan, Iran, Iraq and parts of Jordan and Israel to reach Egypt. Given the geographical as well as a socio-political scenario, that is not the best option to go for. You will need way too many permission and documents to pass through that many borders, and the journey will not be quite as comfortable. However, if you are already travelling in Israel or Jordan, there are ways to go to Egypt by bus. Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Amman have bus services to Cairo.
