Fayoum Travel Guide

Arrival to Fayoum

Normally the trains end at the station in the city's centre and the service taxis and buses stop slightly further out beyond the Gamal Abdel Nasser Mosque. However, coming from Beni Suef you arrive at the Hawatim depot behind the old city, which is also far from city to walk, the local minibus routes are hard to figure out without local knowledge.

The tourist office is situated in a prefab hut near the 4 water wheels, open daily except Fri 9am to 2pm tel 084/342-586. Their colourful map of city isn't much use, but determined enquiries might yield some details of taxi or buses fares to places of interest in the oasis.
