The best months to visit Egypt are from October to April, when the weather is pleasant and not too hot across the entire country. Visiting the country`s famous Pyramids of Giza and exploring the ancient tombs can be more comfortable and enjoyable during this period. During the winter months from October to February, the weather can be much cooler with overcast skies especially in the capital city of Cairo and the Nile Delta region. Winters in the south remain pleasant and warm during these months but temperatures tend to drop at night and become chilly. The Red Sea is ideal during these months providing perfect weather for sunbathing, swimming and snorkeling.

October through April is also peak travel season in the country as most travelers visit during the cooler months and attractions can be very crowded during this popular time. Hotel accommodations and travel prices increase during this time, and often sell out quickly, it is important to book in advance. The winter holiday season of Christmas and New Years are a popular time to visit Egypt along with Easter time as well.
