Best Time To Visit Egypt
Plan your trip during best season to experience the best of this stunning destination
The best time to visit Egypt is from September to April when the weather is cool and pleasant. December and January see the peak season in Egypt due to the Christmas and New Year festivities. It might get very crowded during these months due to a large inflow of tourists, hence it is advisable to book hotels and tickets in advance. Summer season i.e from May to August is very inappropriate to plan a visit to Egypt with temperatures rising to as high as 38 degree Celsius.
March-May (25°C to 35°C):
March marks the end of the peak season and the beginning of excessive heat. There is occasional rain during this time. Temperature is much cooler than what it becomes in the next three months. But do keep an eye out or rather shut, for the famous Khamsin Wind – a minor sandstorm that occurs across Egypt during April-May.
Get to enjoy a Copic festival of Pharaonic origin during the spring season.
June - August (40°C to 45°C):
The month of June experiences the start of the scorching heat, but to see what summer means in a desert country, that too in the greatest desert of the world, one must wait till mid-July. The heat is too much, especially in Luxor and Aswan which are two very important tourist destinations. Even the lower rates of hotel and flight tickets are not worth it because of the extreme weather conditions. Although it is not the best time to visit Egypt, still you can enjoy here in a budget during this time.
Plan a trip during the month of June to celebrate the festival of Ramadan which is also seen as a best time travel to Egypt by many tourists.
September - November (38°C to 40°C):
Heat in the southern cities still remain near 38°C-40°C, but the cities in Northern Egypt gets a little bit cooler than May - June. This is the time when beach activities by the Red Sea and the Mediterranean are very popular.
From scuba diving, snorkeling to swimming with sharks and dolphins, visitors have many options to pursue. Nile River Cruises are also a great way to enjoy the autumn.
December - February (15°C to 20°C):
Have you been wondering about what could be the best time to visit Egypt pyramids. It won’t be that cold, since the whole country has a very arid and dry desert-like climate all through the year, but it does get pretty chilly at the nights. But temperatures do come down to around 20 degrees during December and January in more or less every part, even Luxor and Aswan.
Partake in the West Bank Marathon event held in late January or early February for an altogether different experience.
Festivals Celebrated in Egypt
Ramadan: This Egypt festival is the most important festival celebrated by Muslims all over the country. Ramadan is a popular festival wherein the cities are lit up and markets become lively. Fasting is done from sunrise till sunset and later all the festivities are done with friends and family. The festival is celebrated during the holy month of Ramadan which usually falls in the months of May and June. It is also the best time to travel to Egypt with family and friends.

During the five days festivity, various activities like dance, educational workshops, and music shows take place in which both locals as well as the tourists take part with great enthusiasm.

Climate in Egypt
Summer Season in Egypt
Egypt weather is sweltering during the summer. For this reason, the crowd is very thin. The hotels are more affordable and is the best time for budget travelling. Since the majority of Egypt celebrates Ramadan for one whole month typically in summer, some attractions can close earlier.
Monsoon Season in Egypt
Monsoons in Egypt are very erratic. Usually, no place receives much of rainfall. During early spring Cairo and some other northern parts do receive some scattered rainfall. But there can be a drought for a year and then a flash flood the next year. There is no specific monsoon season.
Winter Season in Egypt
Egypt only has summer, too much summer and a little less summer! So the time which should ideally be winter is actually characterised by the milder warmth in the air. However, this ensures that the holiday season sees a lot of crowd in Egypt.

Trip to GreeceWe just returned from our trip and had an amazing time, would like to thank you Shubham for the same. The hotels you booked were superb. They all were in the best possible location both in terms of ease of transport and the view. Also, your activeness to get us the boarding pass on return flight is much appreciated. Would also like to say that we took a semi private sail boat ride in Santorini and would highly recommend it to your customers.the company name is angel sailing and it was the best time we had. Just a small suggestion though, if possible avoid booking flights on Egypt Air . We had a not so pleasant experience in all our 4 connecting flights through them . But again ,thank you so much for the wonderful experience.

Trip to EgyptVery well arranged tour with a perfect itinerary. The guides were amazing & very knowledgeable. Although we missed the hot air balloon on day 2 bcoz of train delay, it was scheduled on a different day & that day happened to be Jan 1. It was indeed surreal to start 2019 by watching the first sunrise of the year from high up in the sky! Hot Air Balloon ride at Luxor & the Nile Cruise
Trip to SingaporeI had a tour to Singapore with my wife as our honeymoon. I am extremely happy and satisfied with the trip itinerary and assistance provided by Mr. Sukhvinder Saggu of Travel Bhai. Right from the beginning of Visa approval process, he made sure that we did not run into any sort of difficulties. Ours was a 2 step visa process of myself and my wife from Delhi and Mumbai, but, thanks to the meticulous planning by Mr Sukhvinder, the process was completed without any hassle.I was approached by various traveling agents but the best service was provided by Mr Sukhwinder Saggu of travelbhai trip planners .Since I hadn’t gone aborad even once earlier, I was apprehensive of the rules and code of conduct to be observed.But, his 24*7 availability and answering to all the queries in an instant on phone or Whatsapp helped us plan our trip efficiently. We were provided with the best hotel, the best package as per our requirement at a reasonable rate. Mr. Sukhinder Saggu was very helpful in resolving our queries very calmly and methodically. He gave us a quick overview of all the details regarding our trip a day before our flight. Our trip included Night Safari, Garden by Bay, Marina Bay Sands,Sentosa Island, Universal Studio.It was the most memorable and once in a lifetime experience . The Night safari was fantastic with live display of all the creatures and a message to conserve our nature. Sentosa island literally took our breath away. It had so many attractions that the entire day proved to be insufficient. Right from the cable ride over Singapore trees and buildings, to the giant Merlion Statue, to the soothing walk along the beaches and the scintillating display of fireworks at the Wings of Time show, the island is a dream destination to all the romantic as well as adventure buffs out there. Next day, Universal Studios provided a mesmerising display of artistic grandeur with the generous hospitality of Singaporeans, most amazing street shows and out of the world rides on different roller coasters. We explored Madagascar , Lost World, Jurassic Park, Ancient Egypt, Sci-Fi City and the breath-taking display of Steven Spielberg’s film studio. Sukhvinder Saggu ji provided us with the feedback about all the rides and helped us enjoy to the maximum. The trip to MBS and Garden by the Bay was the highlight of the trip. The exotic and serene beauty of the nature took our fatigue away. We enjoyed a lot wandering in the gardens from around the world and took loads of pictures at Flower Dome and Cloud Forest. Panoramic view from the MBS was fabulous. Throughout our trip, Mr Sukhvinder Saggu of Travel Bhai was in touch with us. He suggested us places to visit and Indian restaurants for having proper meals. His knowledge of Singapore and its cuisines is extraordinary. We would love to go on another trip only with Mr Sukhvinder Saggu. Kudos to the entire team of Travel Bhai Trip Planners !!!!
Trip to EgyptDevaansh was super attentive and helpful. Trip was great, but I had a separate agency coordinator for pickup and dropoff, a historian tour guide, and a new driver each day in Egypt. Tipping was out of hand. Wish that were more consolidated as in other countries. Otherwise great time!
