THE BEST TRAIN IN EGYPT | Watania Train | First Class Sleeper – Cairo to Aswan

November 16, 2019

Yeah Alright guys, we’ve just arrived at Giza train station and we’re waiting for a train We are heading to as well as mom so it is a 12 hour train ride overnight And this is meant to be the best trained in Egypt first class Really excited to see what it’s like we’ve never done the overnight train like this before more So Egypt is a very server space industry. They really rely on tourism So you’ll find there will be a lot of Porter’s or bags helpers So we just jump rope our bus and someone from the train station just took our stuff I think they’re gonna take it to our rooms Or they gonna take you to our carriage and we just point out which ones out back Yeah, the moment we don’t have our baggage. Yeah, hopefully it’s okay. I’m fine There it all is Hi guys, we are very similar and we have amazing time. He’s gonna help us on the train to follow Sharif is his name Okay Go, let’s go check this train out thirty seven and eight. Yes seven tonight Oh Yeah, okay, this is quite roomy It is a twin chair, which is nice That’s just for Steven and I yeah This is the number one train to go on in Egypt And this is like the first class area and this is the room that we get. So at the moment we found two chairs a Table with drink holders. Oh Do you think this this isn’t your betters? This could be the bed and then that’s the other bed up there We’re still figuring it out Oh So you got a mirror hello Bathroom oh that could be to another room In here then oh, we’ve got a sink. Oh, cool. Okay, so I’m gonna sing sweet kind of wash We don’t have a shower or anything Okay, that’s for raises But I’m guessing this here must be a bed as well Yeah, but I guess maybe when someone comes later we can find out how that works. But this is our cabin We’re leaving Cairo Oh my gosh next stop as well in 12 hours Hopefully they told us that a lot of the time the trains aren’t on time So I’m really interested to see what time we actually arrive Yesi pyro I’ll put up the name of the Train for you guys just here I just need to figure out how to translate the name, but this is a first-class train and Our guide was saying this is an Egyptian first class So it might not be comparable to first class in maybe our countries, but if you were interested it is included in the tool We’re on but if you were just booking the train for yourself twelve hours a week for train They’re gonna give us dinner. They gonna give us breakfast. It was about sixty to eighty Australian dollars to put the ticket dependable. Where you Just thought I’ll give you a quick view of the cabin from this side So behind Steven there, there’s temperature control and sound control and there’s a mirror and then up here I found this pillows a blanket and we’ve also worked out That behind here is a bed that pulls down and then this is a bed that goes down. Which will I’m sure you guys later Thank you so much Do you feel like something or Thank you so much So we’re going to be number train for about 15 minutes and then already grab dinner It especially included in the ticket and let’s find out what they’ve given us so far. I see a Bread this looks like a thing of tahini YUM, which we’ve been obsessed with ever since who arrived in Egypt So it’s more aeroplanes with funds. He reminds me of airplane foods, we’ve got peas and carrots Very hot. This looks like chicken. Oh, yeah they did tell us that this Whatever it is is vegetarian. It’s about like vegetarian the greens and then in here is like a little dessert We shall do a taste test and then we’ve got a little cake Let’s figure out what this adds to think like an Opie. Is it gonna taste like peas? We don’t really eat chicken It looks like it would probably taste like fried KFC chicken. Yeah, but what is this? It smells pretty good. Yeah. Oh it’s a pasta bake or yolk. It’s pasta scene What’s really cool That’s really tasty like a cheesy pasta. But also sorry about the sound we we can’t figure out how to close our window. Are you? Yeah, that’s just that’s the thing We got our beds what happened was he came and took our food away and then he asked us if we wanted to have the beds put down now or later and yet she had to use a key and Then he pulls it down and then he said good night Yeah Pretty good, I thought the pillows good my lights not working. So it’s a bit dark, but it looks the same as up there Heading to bed. It’s actually pretty good sleeping on the train because just like walks here to sleep like a baby But we’ll see you in the morning and we’ll go for a little explore around the train Oh God here she comes It’s too bad I’ve ever known Yeah, I can’t tell how I feel because she has some heart to make sort of happy imma, go steady smalls I’m coffee, please now we have breakfast in bed. Looks like they’ve given us a bunch of pastries some honey a bit of a sweet bread normal bread and a croissant And some coffee. All right guys, it is 11 hours. Later And we basically spent most of the time on the train that’s sleeping, but I think coming on the train This made me realize how much I love train travel when we were in South America We did so many overnight buses and they were so long and you don’t have like room to lie down and stretch and stuff but on a train It’s kind of like being in a hotel that’s moving be kind of incentive pay for every tonht you’re paying for it right you wake Up and you’re in a new destination. I love train travel and even though that this is not the most luxurious first-class five-star Train like it is seriously fine. It is cheap. The beds are comfortable that gave you full on proper pillows You got a sheet and a blanket for if you got cold. We slept all night. I love it You’re being mad But on this week super-comfortable this beats 12 hours on the train and definitely beats 12 hours on a bus I mean we’re able to walk around this bar through so the Train is just like he’s standard Butler He was just a toilet here. There’s a sink with running water. I mean, you can dry your hands. There’s no shower in the trunk It’s funny here. Oh, yeah. It’s way hotter here twenty nine a.m. And it’s hot All righty guys this morning we’re heading to fill a temple You actually have to get there over motorboat and it is the temple for the goddess of Isis She’s the goddess of love well for the ancient Egyptians. Yes Island Find it crazy that this is date three of our time here in Egypt and we went from Pyramids to a sleeper train to wake boats on the river coming to another technical So this temple is two thousand years old and as hieroglyphs all over the building that date back years Crazy, but it’s kind of unique because years ago, they built a dam and it made the Nile overflow So all these temples one to water and this one was underwater for ages and they decided to save it So what they actually did was they cut it into pieces and then rebuilt the temple here So it’s like a reconstruction using the old pieces. So this is still all like original hieroglyphs. They’ve just moved the temple This is the first time we’ve actually seen like proper hieroglyphics on the world RV. It’s like, you know Egyptian Yeah I guess it was like a temple where they celebrated the goddess of Isis but it is massive as well like this columns all along here with all hieroglyphs and Entrance is very grand. Really? Let me now point to mercy This is how big these carvings are This room is where they place their offering, you know live an altar just here we put gifts towards the gods So insane being in here It’s like an epic window into the night. Oh, that’s just thinking that crazy if you think this once used to be underneath The Nile yeah Wow I’m gonna join in with this part It’s a little cafe that we found just next to the temple It’s pretty hot today and it’s like 3 or 4 degrees hotter than in Cairo so I could do a cold drink. Oh Wow, look at the roof is just carpets These guys I found the best seat right in front of the aircon I think some cab has been very Very busy, there’s like 20 pounds There’s so many kitties I hope you guys enjoyed that video If you are new around here Make sure you hit that subscribe button because we have a bunch of Egyptian vlogs coming your way because on the next episode Alright guys, we just arrived at the house on stilts and we’re doing – sorry. We’re a little shop in the market Yeah, it’s just like in case we going to any temples or something. I Mean there is intense So and then it gets like a little bit too much because so many people want you to come in their stores Oh

    older handy me downs trains from Spain , the toilet waste drops to the tracks so no using in the train station, the food is so-so and sometimes you almost get throw out of your bed when the train does a fast stop , but it was fun to see the small towns go by late at night lots of stars out we did it in the early 2000's next time if i ever get around to it ,to do the river boats up and down

    I took this same train 3 weeks ago, this video is so full of Shit I’m sorry but the train is not first class at allll. It was dirty, the air vent fell out of the ceiling, I don’t even think the beds were cleaned between trips coz they let the people off and on straight away. The drinks are not free, the breakfast was just packaged bread rolls and croissants. The train was bumpy the entire time, the room is so tiny. Honestly Just pay the extra $20 and fly there in an 1 hour. These vloggers are hyping up this peasantry and I’m trying to get our money back for it. But I’m a luxury travel blogger so I don’t have backpacker standards 🤷🏼‍♀️🤣
