Winter Season
According to the weather,
Egypt is an ideal winter season destination with daytime temperatures between 21-30 degrees Celsius (69.8-86.0 degrees Fahrenheit, hardly any precipitation and many hours of sunshine. In November and March it is even much more pleasant here than during the hot summer months. The north coast, along the Mediterranean Sea forms an exception. Here it is slightly cooler, wetter and grayer during the winter. The weather is still pleasant, but with temperatures of 18-19degrees Celsius (64.4-66.2 degrees Fahrenheit) and a cool breeze it is not warm enough to spend your day along the pool or on the beach. There are three main reasons to visit Egypt: - culture, countless historic treasures can be found throughout the country. The winter is ideal to visit the many pyramids, museums, excavation sites and other attractions because it is not too hot during this period. Especially in Luxor and Aswan it is too hot during the summer. Beach holiday during the winter you can get yourself pampered in one of the luxurious hotels along the coast. In December, January, February and to a lesser degree in March it may be slightly cooler during some days. Diving and other water sports. During the winter the Red Sea is ideal for diving and other water sports.

Summer Season
Summers in Egypt are hot. Temperatures may easily rise up to 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) in the shade. A visit to Egypt during the summer is not ideal. If you do plan a holiday to Egypt during the summer it is recommended to adjust your schedule. Plan an excursion during the morning and try to get some rest during the hottest part of the day. The Egyptians also adjust to the weather and wait for the sun to set and temperatures get more bearable.
