How To Go To Al-Fayoum
Getting To Al Fayoum
Microbuses are the quickest way to travel from Cairo to Al-Fayoum. You can find them at Midan al- Remaya in Giza, from Ulali near Ramses Station or from the ring-road underpass in Moneib. The journey will take around 1½ to two hours.
If you want to go to Lake Qarun or Tunis, take a microbus direct from Midan al-Remaya to Abshaway, which is just south of the lake; from there you can take another microbus onward. On the way back, microbuses leave Medinat al-Fayoum from north of the train station and head to many main stations in Cairo; the fare depends on the destination.
Go to Medinat al-Fayoum from Giza Suburban station at 9 am, 2 pm and 5 pm. They’re slow and quite grubby, but a train nonetheless. They return at 7.15am, noon and 5.30pm. The journey will take up to 2 hours.
