An Indian in Egypt Trains: Useful apps | Type of trains | 1, 2 & 3 Class


This was the local train. This is Luxor Railway Station. My train will be arriving soon. This gentleman is giving me a lot of information. That is the VIP train. They are Air-conditioned and are new trains. Consist of 1st and 2nd classes. Here, chair-car is called First Class. First class seats are wide, more comfortable and expensive. Second class seats are less wide. Another train here is called Non-VIP train or Spanish tarin. It also consists of 1st and 2nd class. The fare of 1st class Non-VIP trains and 2nd class VIP trains is almost the same. To experience Egyptian Railway at low costs, you can travel in 3rd class (Ordinary trains). That train which just went by would be stopping at all the stations and it headed to Cairo. This is a Non-AC train. Another train here is called sleeping train. You can search on Google about these trains. I have my flight back tomorrow. Now, I’ll tell you about the helpful mobile apps while travelling in Egyptian trains. Rail Egypt & Egypt Trains were two very helpful travel applications. These apps are in English. You’ll find all the information about the trains using the app. AC is the Non-VIP train, Distinct is the Ordinary Train and then there is the VIP train. You can go to the counter and tell them you have to go in this particular train using the train number. If you need anything more, take help from locals. This is to show you how a VIP train looks like. So, this was a second class coach of a VIP train. You’ll find charging points too in these trains. Ask people around you about the announcements, because they are completely in Arabic. This is my train! Too much chaos, as soon as the train arrives! I’m not sure, how they’ll determine which is my coach. No idea about the seat numbers. Good amount of leg space and comfortable! I’ll give you a tour of the train! The door is so wide! This are is filled with smoke! Toilets! But I haven’t been able to find phone charging points. It’s 7:50 AM and I’m at the Cairo Railway Station. There’s this restaurant at the first floor. My plan is to see a couple of more places in Cairo and then head back to Alexandria via bus or train. Now I’ll share with you my Egyptian Train experience! I was in the 2nd Class of the Non-VIP train. it was very cold in there. It took almost 12 hours for the journey. My train left Luxor at 6:30 PM and arrived at Cairo at 5:30 AM. Toilets are not very clean and people smoke a lot. Too much smell due to people smoking outside. In India, you’ll get a similar experience in the sleeper class. I’m sitting here so that I can charge my devices. A waiter told that somebody has left a message for me! I’ll read out to you. This is the fist time in my life that a stranger left me a such a heartwarming message! The washroom here at the station is quite clean and was empty in the morning. Time to experience Egyptian metro! People give a very nice feedback as soon as they hear that I’m from India!

  2. The message was really heart touching.
    That shows how people are connected and how a single person from a nation can represent the whole nation in foreign nation.
    Keep spreading love and peace.

  3. Varun Bhaiya is train ke jo rounded seat hain, ye apne hisab se baithne k lie hain, agar train sidhi jaaye to sidhe seat kar k baithne aur phir jab return aaye to seat ko ghuma liya jata hai…

  4. Whenever i am happy i may cry…but this time…in the end of this video….i can fill a bucket😭😭😭 this shows how much the world respects indians….and now it is our duty to respect them back😊

  5. Nice gesture in the end

    Love & respect towards the people of egypt

  6. u got credit becoz of ur dignity. nice to see. our people here in india need to learn this 2. here also taxi drivers fool tourists which shud be stopped.

  7. See, It's land of contradictions, so it's not bad all the time 🙂
    Hope ppl here have more awareness in the future to be able to fight the filthy military mafia which destroy our country.

  8. When I found a video dedicated to Indian foreign policy in a US based channel. They compliment India for being helpful us citizens in yemen crisis and is a friend of USA while being a friend of Russia at the same time. It has good relations with Palestine and also with Israel. Iran is a friend of India and Saudis too. I think we should be thankful for our government also despite of any ruling party they created a great image. This video also shows that India should send more teachers to the world for a better future and that was/is our actual identity. Vishwaguru

  17. You should atleast said thank you to that person. You didnt even said thanks to who ever left this money. It was like you feel ashamed that this person thinks you r needy or deserving person.

  18. After watching Egyptian trains.
    I realized one thing that Indian trains are better than this.
    AC coach in Egyptian train looked like general coach of Indian trains.
    Even sleeper class is better than this in India.
