Getting there & away

With service taxi and bus travel forbidden to foreigners, the only way of leaving Sohag is by train. There is a frequent service north and south along the CairoLuxor main line, with a dozen daily trains to Asyut (1st/2nd class E£21/14) and Luxor (E£35/21). The service to Al-Balyana is very slow (3rd class only E£4.50).
