Is it safe to travel from Cairo to Taba???
Posted December 22nd, 2012 - 11:57 am by from Buenos Aires, Argentina (Permalink)
Hi everybody!!

We are going soon to Egypt and from there we are planning on going to Jordan. Anybody knows what is the best (cheapest, fastest, safe) way to go from Cairo to Taba? We read there is a bus... Does anybody know at what time they departs and how many hours it takes?

It is safe for foreigners to cross Sinai? We read there was some kidnappings this year... is that true?

Thanks a lot!

Hey Laila & Mariano,

I'm going to the same way in January. When will you go there? Probabbly it would be better travel together. :-)

I also don't know how safe and easy this way.

We will probably be crossing around 17th... what about you?

Keep in touch!!

I'm also go to Taba 17th or 18th morning. If there any night bus or shared taxi (17th evening) it wolud be the best. I guess the shared taxi isn't so expensive, if we are 3 probably it would be a good option too.
