CAIRO – Things to do | Train station | Superjet Bus | Google Trips | Local Transport


It’s 2:45 PM and a Wednesday. I left quite late from my hotel. This is Cairo. I’m going to the Railway Station. It is the main train station of Cairo. Trains from here go to all over Egypt. To get to the station, I’m taking the help of Google Maps. In 8 minutes, I’ll reach the railway station. Here it’s hard to understand, where will the traffic come from. Here the traffic moves on the right. Unlike in India, where it moves on the left. That big, red ‘M’ indicates Cairo Metro. Wherever you find such symbols and undergoing stairs, that’ll mean Cairo Metro. I was hungry so thought of trying some corn. This corn smells good! 1 corn costs 3 Egyptian Pounds. Egypt is very different when I compare it to the other countries that I have travelled to. People are really very aggressive here. While I was buying the corn, a person from behind suddenly started shouting that I should stop recording! Similar thing happened while I was walking underneath the flyover. I’ve been trying to ignore these people. This is the railway station. Here you’ll find ATM’s of National Bank of Egypt. I had read on the internet about these Ticket Vending Machines. This is one of them. It looks like this. You can choose your preferred language. You can choose between the type of trains. Now it’s showing all the available trains. The machine doesn’t seems to be working! This gentleman is helping me buy the ticket. With him, I’m going to the Ticket Window. This is first class window. This is the 3rd Class Compartment. Looks good! This is the 3rd Class Compartment. As per this gentleman, it’s better to take a bus than stand in the queue for the train. It’s better to take a bus. Will be cheap and at the same time will be a comfortable journey. Near to the main railway station of Cairo is the Metro Station named Shohada Metro Station. Near to this metro station is a bus terminal from where you can find inter-city buses. It is 4:45 PM. I am at the SuperJet Bus Agency and have purchased ticket to Luxor for 140 Egyptian Pounds. Had purchased the ticket half an hour back. This is my current location. Now Google Maps is showing me how many restaurants are available near to me. This distance is also being shown. You can also use filters like, currently open, top rated ones, etc. Similarly, you can use Google Maps to find out about petrol stations, restaurants, points of interest, etc. Another useful application that you can use is Google Trips. It scans all your journey details on mail and then makes a compiled itinerary for the entire trip. For now, I have decided to go to Khan el-Khalili. Here’s how far Khan el-Khalili is from my current location. 30 minutes by walking, 19 minutes in a car due to heavy traffic jam. I haven’t decided my mode of transportation yet. But I’ve got an idea as to where I would be heading next. I have taken information from a local. I’m now heading to Khan el-Khalili. Could have taken an UBER. Would have costed 27-28 Egyptian Pounds. From a place ahead, I’ll get a Micro Bus which will cost only 2 to 3 Egyptian Pounds. The vehicle I’m sitting in right now is similar to the Maruti Omni Van in India! Three seats at the back, three in the middle and one along with the driver. It’ll cost me only 3.5 Egyptian Pounds for this journey. Really hungry right now! Let’s try some Egyptian Pancakes. Cream Pancakes for 30 Egyptian Pounds! This is Khan el-Khalili bazaar! Before leaving India, I had a talk with Egyptian Tourism officials. They recommended me this place. Very important fact. In Cairo and in fact in entire Egypt, tap water is not drinkable. Thus I have no other option than to purchase packaged water. Although a few people confirmed that it’s safe. But I read on the internet, that a lot of chlorine is mixed in tap water which can be hazardous for health. This looks like a happening place! 5 Egyptian Pounds for one bottle (1.5 L). Very weird lift! I’ll show you how it opens.
