Countries Not Requiring Entry Visa for Egyptians (UPDATED On 30.8.2015)

Published

on

Egyptians like to travel, however those only holding an Egyptian passport tend to pick domestic destinations, as they hate to go through the visa process that requires ridiculous documents, consumes a hell of time and above all requires planning ahead of time, it’s never like “let’s go to Europe or anywhere in the world next week”, it’s “let’s plan for our coming trip at least 3 months in advance, and pick a destination with minimal visa requirements”.

Who said that Egyptians can’t tour some amazing parts of the world hassle free? Good news, there is still a good number of 43 destinations visa free, or where visa is acquired upon arrival to Egyptian passport holders.

Important Notice: Always call the relevant embassy to make sure that no changes were made to their visa policy, and to pay a visit to Mogama3 El-Ta7rir in case you are traveling to one of those 16 destinations, and fall into the 18 to 45 age group

Most of us think that only Europe or the US are the place to be, but what the world has to offer is way beyond our imagination, this list of places will make you look at the world pretty differently and reconsider your travel plans.

The forum that began last Saturday on the 16th of March, and witnessed the participation of more than 1,500 youth, ended yesterday morning with a huge success.

The forum that took place in the upper Egyptian city, celebrated Egypt’s chairing of the African Union and shed the light on Egypt being a meeting point between both the African and Arab civilizations.

In light of this, the forum included the discussion of several crucial topics that relate to the development of both regions. These topics included the future of scientific research and health care, and the impact of advanced technology and innovation in Africa and the Arab region.

A number of senior officials attended the opening ceremony including, representatives and public figures from Africa such as Mariam al-Mansouri, the UAE’s first female fighter pilot; Moussa Faki, the African Union Commission chairperson; Nelson Mandela’s grandson; Syrian journalist and anchor Zaina Yazigi and Ahmad Ahmad, president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF).

As for the Arab and African countries that contributed in the AYF, they included Nigeria, Djibouti, Chad, Ghana, Burundi, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Gambia, Sudan, Gabon, Iraq, Palestine, Guinea and Mozambique.

Travel Guide: Egypt’s First long-distance Hiking Trail

Published

on

By

This new hiking trail is considered to be the first long distance trail in Egypt, it begins and ends by the Gulf of Aqaba, the 105-mile Red Sea Mountain Trail will take hikers through the epic deserts of Sinai.

Egypt is known for its breathtaking scenery of mountains, and through this trail, tourists will be able to walk through the mountainscapes west of the beach-side of Hurghada. Thus giving them an authentic experience of Egypt, and introduce them to Egypt’s beautiful culture and the local Bedouin tribes.

This trail was previously composed of ancient routes that Bedouin created; to help them in traveling, trading, and hunting, and it is owned by a local tribe names Maaza.

The 42 day sea-to-summit route is just the perfect way; to showcase Egypt’s iconic wilderness.

The aim of the project is to of course benefit tourism and also the Bedouin community; by preserving their culture and showcasing it to the world.

It will help give Bedouins leadership roles, and empower them to tell their own stories about the heritage of their homeland.

If you’re not much of a hiker, don’t worry because there are easier and shorter circuits within the Red Sea Mountain.

Note that such a hike can’t be done on your own, and that having a local guide is mandatory for safety measures.

“From vast, desert plains to deep gorges and high, rugged summits, and from crumbling Roman towns to prehistoric rock art and chapels of Egypt’s early Desert Fathers the Red Sea Mountain Trail shows the best of the region’s inimitable beauty,”

Your Travel Guide for Popular Attractions in Bali Ubud

Published

on

By

Bali has become the most popular island holiday destination in Indonesia, and lately became a top romantic destination for honeymooners; because of its exotic nature and breathtaking scenery. It’s known for the marvelous attractions of temples and palaces that are set against stunning natural backdrops. My advice for those interested in traveling to Bali would be to divide their stay to Ubud, Seminyak and Kuta. Each area is special in its own way, because while Ubud greets you with its nature, Seminyak offers exciting clubbing and packed dance floors. The kind of diversity that you sure will be seeking during your trip.

From my own experience at Ubud, here is a list of places that are a must visit:

1- Ubud Monkey Forest

Ubud Monkey Forest, aka the Sacred Monkey Forest of Padangtegal, is one of Ubud’s most popular attractions; as it’s a natural forest sanctuary that is home to a horde of grey long-tailed macaques. As an animal lover myself, I have always wanted to see them in their natural habitat and not behind bars. This is exactly why I enjoyed being surrounded with my favorite animal.

Tip: If you want to take a photo with a monkey, hold your palm up with some food in it, but be ready for monkeys to jump on you at any time!

2- Tegallalang Rice Terraces

The huge rice terrace is another popular attraction, the greenery there is breathtaking especially at sunset. Another highlight to go to nearby is the quaint village of Pakudui, where you can find an extraordinary variety of ornamental woodwork and various carvings. The shops nearby also sell the nicest local clothes, so make sure you don’t miss out on them.

Tip: wear comfy shoes because you’ll be going down long steps, and it might get muddy as well.

Near by are the coffee fields, where you get to taste their variety of coffees whilst enjoying a splendid view of the fields. Don’t go cheap when it comes to coffee shopping, because for a caffeine addict, this will be your heaven on Earth, so make sure you take some home.

3- Lempuyang Temple

One of my absolute favorites, and definitely worth the trip up to the top. The temple is literally so high that your pictures there are as if you’re standing between the clouds. The best views are higher up the stairs, where you can see all the way across the green forested slopes and neighboring Mount Agung. But only hikers will enjoy reaching this high point via a steep staircase of over 1,700 steps, but don’t worry, for the not so athletic as myself, you can pay a car to drive you up to the top, but expect a bumpy ride!
4- Finnis Beach Club 

Whether it is Finnis or any other club, spending a day at a beach club is a definite must! I mean can you name a better combination than the beach, good food and music? It won’t even cost you as much as you may think, because with a certain amount, you will have a nice comfy setting, access to the bathrooms, the beach and your choice for a meal and two drinks. And let me tell you, swimming in an island is a whole other experience.

5- Bali Swing 

The swings there are one of the reasons many now know about Bali, but what you might not know is that there are several ones, and their prices vary. So compare between prices, ask if they have life insurance (better safe than sorry) and ask them to check the pictures taken by tourists, and happy swinging!

Bali is beautiful and is surely one of the destinations closest to my heart, and so if you’re not going there for a honeymoon, substitute the fancy villa with a cheaper one, I stayed in Puri Suksma Ubud and it was a nice little hotel with a stunning view. Of course it isn’t like staying at a fancy villa that overlooks the rice terrace or coffee fields but it will definitely do.

One thing that bothered me personally was their currency. You can spend millions there, yes literally speaking, because 100 dollars equal a million and something rupiah! So as a person who sucks at math, it was hectic for me. Especially that you have to compare the prices of trips in dollars, so you would know how to bargain. So my advice is, choose a math geek to join your group.

Other than that, the experience at Bali is a new one, and can be enjoyed at a very reasonable price if you don’t go all fancy.
