What is the best time to visit Egypt?

The best time to visit Egypt depends on where you want to go. Generally speaking, winter (December to February) is the tourist high season and summer (June to August) is the low season in all parts of the country except on the coasts, and to a lesser degree in Cairo.
Weather-wise, June to August is unbearable almost anywhere south of Cairo, especially around Luxor and Aswan, where daytime temperatures soar up to 40°C. Summer in Cairo is almost as hot.
When visiting somewhere such as Luxor, winter is easily the most comfortable time. Cairo isn’t quite as pleasant, with often overcast skies and chilly evenings, while up on the Mediterranean coast Alexandria is subject to frequent downpours resulting in flooded, muddy streets. Even Sinai’s beaches are a little too chilly for sunbathing in January.
The happiest compromise for an all-Egypt trip is to visit in spring (March to May) or autumn (September to November).

What to bring in your suitcase?
Summer: light clothing, sandals, swimsuit, sunscreen, anti-mosquito spray, and a hat or bandana to protect yourself from the sun.
Winter: we recommend mixed clothing, half-sleeved shirts, jeans or long trousers, a sweatshirt or light jacket for the evening, do not forget the swimsuit, because in some areas the temperature is still pleasant even to enjoy a winter bath.

What to wear in Egypt?

The dress code in Egypt is naturally conservative, especially for women. Some of them wear a hijab, others the niqab, and some do not cover their heads. Female tourists are not legally required to adhere to the dress code. However, dressing conservatively is one way of showing respect for the country’s religion.

Recommended clothes are high-necked blouses with sleeves, loose pants or cotton or linen under-knee skirts. Tight or transparent clothing must be avoided. For formal occasions, elegant clothes with a shawl covering the bare shoulders can be a great choice.

For men, long pants, shirts, and t-shirts are perfect. Shorts are not acceptable in some areas, but they are accepted on beaches or resorts. As for shoes, they must be strong and comfortable with a closed toe to protect the feet from sand or dust. Sandals are not a good option unless you are going to the beach. The temperature transition between day and night is important in most areas, so a jacket or shawl is a must.

What to buy in Egypt?

Do you love pyramids? Good news, there are mini versions that you can buy to take home! You can look for pronounced Kar-toosh memories. It’s an Egyptian version of badges, but much cooler.

Buying canopic jars is also a good idea. These objects are beautiful vases with inscriptions or magnificent sculptures. These jars were used in ancient Egypt to preserve organs during the mummification process.

The Jalabeya, ‘galabiya’ or ‘jellabiya’ is a traditional Egyptian garment, native to the Nile Valley and Fez is a cylindrical hat. These are accessories often bought by tourists during their holidays in Egypt. You can also find alabaster vases that were once used for many religious rituals, burials and also as containers for perfume as well as for essential oils. They are now essentially decorative.

In several souvenir shops, you will have the opportunity to buy Egyptian jewelry boxes. Previously, these objects were created by Egyptian craftsmen especially to please the pharaohs. In the streets of Cairo, you will find some artists who make a living by making bottles from the sand. When you buy this type of souvenir, they create a personalized design according to your preferences.

It is also possible to buy Khayameya which is a textile from the Middle East used mainly to make tents in the past. Now it is mainly a product used in Cairo for decorative purposes. What if you bought the new version of the papyrus? This paper, which has long been proclaimed to be of Egyptian origin, is undoubtedly an essential gift when you visit Egypt.
