West Bank Ticket Office

Post by AladdinSane » Sat Aug 25, 2018 7:26 pm

How long does it take to walk from the Colossi of Memnon to the Ticket Office? How long to walk to Medinet Habu from the Ticket office?

Is Mahmouds still open? Are there Any other West Bank restaurants?

10 mins from the colossi to the ticket office maybe 15 since it's so hot at the moment same with Medinet Habu. Restaurants. Rest House, Marsam, quite a few in that area. Near the ferry the usual hotel restaurants plus Africa, Sunrise

Thanks for info.

For Medinet Habu - which direction do we take from Ticket Office?

Africa Sunrise- Is that a new one? Do they serve Egyptian food? We'd like to eat local cuisine...

I advise popping into The Marsam opposite Qurna Marait 3 minutes walk from ticket office.
Not only the oldest dig house on the west bank but a wealth of history.

Not officially opened until the digging season returns next month,
but the staff will happily supply you a chilled beer with ice and loads of history if your interested.

If your flagging round the tombs ?
pop into The Ramesseum Rest House for a Stella still looks like a 1960's coffee shop.... 8)
Ps: I always miss Mohamed Snakes' ice-cold Stella's at his place on the Mountain.

From the ticket office turn right you should be able to see it, just outside Mudinet Habu are a couple of small restaurants where you can get a drink and a snack. Sorry Afric and Sunrise are two differnet places Africa is very near the ferry terminal walk left as you get off the ferry then past the new garden coffee shop turn right and you should be at Africa. Sunrise is next door to the Feyrouz hotel well sign posted both no more than 10 minutes walk from the ferry and both have Egyptian food.
As Who has said Marsam and the Rest house are lovely places to eat and drink especially in the evening at sunset, the mountains are spectacular, different colours every 10 minutes. I do hope you enjoy your holiday but please since it is very hot take loads of water with you every where you go.
