very quiet and healthy place where you can just through all of your concerns behind your back, siwan people are very polite and friendly its something we are missing nowaday in our daily life,
you can go there from matruh , alexandria or cairo by the west delta (very poor bus) but the trip is realy worthy the bus schedule is very lomited only once a day and no pre schedule,
also you can go there using our local micro buses from cairo to matruh and then from matruh to siwa which is available all day long,

Siwan hotel

All of the siwan hotel are made on the siwan houses stile something different from our daily life,
and most of them have their own swimming pool which is filled from a natural spring, since all siwa depending on natural springs,
I didn't like the siwan food much but sure it has its own flavor,
lack of varities of restaurants made you go on buying lots of snacks,
but i wish to have there one of our fool and falafel delishes food or even koushary :)
the hotels made there food on the egyptian style but not very tasty,
but believe me if you are not egyptian the egyptian food is very delicious and tasty

Tour to be made there

off course you can go on for a desert safari where you can see beer wahed a spring there famous for its very warm water with kind of sulphuric smell where it is very healty for your skin,
also you can see the cold lake or the warm lake or you can camp there,
the desert of siwa has a very unique taste than any other deserts i have seen you have to go there
or you can go on with the city sight seeing
