If you are on a shoe string budget, Siwa is actually the cheapest place in Egypt to travel and enjoy amazing nature.
Here's a guide on how to travel to Siwa in less than 600LE (that's approx less than 90 USD) for a two night/three days trip:
- Take a bus to Siwa from Turgomen Station - 240 LE both ways.
- Stay in Hotel Kelany or Cleopatra Hotel. They offer room for 65 - 95 LE per night.
- Travel around Siwa on a rental bike. This will set you back 25LE per day.
- If you stick to local basics, you can have breakfast, lunch and dinner for 45LE per day.
As you can see, you can really stretch your money in Siwa and still have a great experience.
The only thing you cannot do with this budget is to go deep into the desert. However there are so many amazing places in the Oasis itself that you can really spend many days exploring them all.
