Nice weather and moderate crowds make February–April and October–November the best time to visit Egypt. These months are perfect for enjoying the Nile River cruise and hiking Sinai trail. March to May can bring sandstorms from the desert with the ‘khamsin’ wind. Summer in Egypt is sweltering with July and August being the hottest, so escape the heat at the Red Sea beaches, but book in advance. December and January are chilly everywhere except the south, and full of tourist flocks at major sights like Pyramids of Giza and Temples of Luxor. Keep in mind major holidays like Radaman when lots of restaurants and banks close down during the day.
