When to visit Egypt is not a
difficult question since this country offers amazing
attractions in every season.
If you like the high
temperatures and maybe some crowed places you can
choose to visit Egypt in the summer time. Or, if you
prefer a temperate clime, the springtime or the
winter time is the best choice for your visit.
In case that you
choose to visit Egypt in the summer, you should wear
casual cloths from cotton, in light colors.
But also can go to
bazaars to buy some Egyptian cloths; it will combine
the practical thing with thepleasant one, since
shopping in an Egyptian bazaar is always fun.
You should have with you enough water with you, a
hat or something else to cover your head and
sunglasses, too. The dust may disturb your eyes so
some eyes drops will be welcome. Since Egypt is a
Muslim country try not to offend its citizens with
your extravagant cloths.
Women should not wear short
cloths, especially in a mosque or church. Of course,
women can wear short cloths when they are on a beach
or at a pool. Men too should not wear short when
visiting mosques or churches.
And everybody who
visits such places must live their shoes at the
entrance. If you want to offer
something to the Egyptian kids that play on the streets you
can offer to them pens, it is a real joy for them to receive
something like this.
There are things in Egypt that you can do in any period of
the year, like diving, snorkeling, in some warm and pleasant
places like Hurghada.
In the winter this place is perfect
for kiting and windsurfing as the wind blows a little bit
fast. Desert safari is also something that you can do in
Egypt no matter the season, except the winter (from November
to February) when is colder.
The best place for a safari adventure is the Western
Desert, an amazing place with so many beauties to
discover. If you want to visit Sharm el Sheikh maybe
is better to do it while is winter (from October to
the beginning of March) because during the summer
the temperatures are very high. In Sharm el Sheikh
are only two seasons, summer and winter, opposite to
Cairo where are four seasons. A special time to
visit Egypt is the winter holidays; spending the
Christmas and the New Year in Egypt is definitely an
unforgettable experience. It doesn't matter if the
weather is cooler in December and January as long as
in Egypt are so many things to do and so many places
The conclusion is that choosing the period of the
year when to visit Egypt is only up to your decision; the
amazing country of Egypt waits for you with the fascinating
tombs and mummies, with the agitated and rich
bazaars, with the ancient mosques, churches and mausoleums,
with views that will remain in your heart, and many more.
