What is the best time to visit Egypt?

Whether you are a beach lover, adventurer or interested in exploring the ancient Egyptian civilization you will find Egypt your favourite destination as it has all the attractions and activities a tourist is looking for but each has its own peak time during which you will enjoy your visit best so here we will explain which is the best time to visit Egypt according to your interest based mainly on weather conditions.

If you are looking for a relaxing time on the beach or an exciting time for water sports and scuba diving, your destination should be one of the South Sinai or Red sea resorts, Sharm El Sheikh, Dahab, Taba, Hurghada, Safaga and Marsa Alam. These cities have the best hotels with private sandy beaches prepared to accommodate guests and offer all facilities to enjoy their holidays. Weather in South Sinai and the Red Sea resorts is hot in summer and warm during the day in winter but the winter nights sometimes are a bit cold. The best time to visit this area is from September to April, the peak time is during December and January for Christmas and new year holidays season. But if hot weather (temperature could reach 45 C or 113F at noon), you could benefit from discounts from May to August, you can spend the day on the beach and enjoy the night entertainment.

There are also Alexandria, Marsa Matruh and the many resorts on the Mediterranean north coast of Egypt for beach lovers during summer months (June - August) who can enjoy a mild weather (temp between 30 C / 86 F to 35 C / 95 F) which have long sandy beaches, clear water and good accommodation facilities, some hotels have private beaches. The time to avoid being in these destinations is the winter months, or from October to February as you might experience heavy rain and cold weather (temp could drop to 9 C / 48 F in January) unless it's ok to walk in the rain or go to warm places like museums). 

If you are looking for a winter holiday but don't care about the beach, then you can spend a good time in southern Egypt ancient monuments rich cities especially Luxor and Aswan. These two cities have most of the ancient Egyptian tourists sights in the country, you can enjoy cruising the Nile from Luxor to Aswan in 3 or 4 nights and stopping to see the great temples of Karnak, Luxor, Komombo, Abu sembel or Philae and the tombs of Tutankhamun, Nefertari, the valley of kings and queens, the temple of Hatshepsut, you can ride a balloon to view Luxor from the air and many more. The best time to visit Luxor and Aswan is between October and February.

Millions of people from all over the world come to Egypt just to see the great Pyramids and the Sphinx in Giza which makes Cairo their favourite destination for a holiday. If you plan to visit the Pyramids you can best enjoy your time from October to March where the temperature is mild during the day, but beware of cold weather in the night as temperature could be as low as 9 C / 48 F in January), so make sure you are prepared for a chill sometimes. April is a month that separates winter and summer and average temperature is 28 C - 14 C /  82 F - 57 F in April. Rain is rare in Cairo at any time of the year.

Conclusion: Egypt is an ideal holiday destination  where tourists will find places to visit and things to do all year long
