Western Desert Reviews
西方砂漠、バハレイヤの2泊3日のツアーで訪れました。カイロからは5時間以上かかり、大変です。せっかく行くのなら、2泊以上をお勧めします。温泉が点在しているけど、温泉は、夕方5時以降でないと入れない事が多く、私が訪問した時は、ツアーで立ち寄る時間に入れる温泉はありませんでした。陽が暮れて遅い時間に車を出して貰って行きました。場所を知っていれば徒歩でも十分行ける所に、温泉はありました。白砂漠1泊のツア... more »We visited the western desert, two nights and three days in Baha'ia. It takes more than five hours from Cairo, and it's hard. If you're going with great pains, we recommend two nights or more. There are many hot springs scattered around, but hot springs are often not allowed until after 5 pm, so when I visited, there was no hot spring to put in the time to stop by on the tour. The sun broke out and i had my car out late. There was a hot spring in the place where it was possible to go even if it was possible to go even by walking if it knew the place. You can't soak in the hot spring baths on a one-night tour of the White Desert.

Epic its history during the 2WW and in the past where in some part is buried the famous army of Cambise. Its large tourist circuit, of more than a thousand km, the only authorized today that connects the oasis of Bahariya, Farafra, Dakhla and Kharga offers one of the most interesting crossed Saharian. To face it today is no longer a question of adventure but only of much availability of time, money, permits and choice of T. or reliable and specialized in security, that is with military in tow, made now mandatory also for the Oasis Siwa secluded from Circuit-I have been there several times remaining every time about a month today it is impossible to do so with own vehicles unless you are residing in Egypt and always escorted by the military. A real pity for the Egyptian tourism because it deserves much being spectacular species in the part called White Desert, (there is also the Black desert), fearful along the Libyan side for the immense bead of dunes in addition to the risk mines and encounters with traffickers, Desolating in the plain of Qattara. I T. O are reluctant today to go over Farafra for various reasons while in Siwa it is easier there is a very luxurious and safe resort from where to over for nearby tours. It is suggested the choice of a local T.O. and always schedule more times than expected. and registration to travel safe of obligation. Date for Postrare
