Why do Egyptians travel occasionally?
We, Egyptians, are hard to please. We do not move a foot unless we are sure that the other one is safe.
We hate taking risks and we are frightened when it comes to hard conditioned adventures.
We love to play it safe and to settle for average.
But the question is: Till when will we make plans ahead and get rid of our lazy heads?
Traveling is much simpler than we think.
It does not require all the hassle we put in our heads.
It only needs a plan, a program and a few simple questions to be answered like:
1. Duration: From when till when?
2. Destination: To where?
3. Travelling Crew: Who & How many people will join?
4. Budget: Establish a logical pricing
5. Reservation: Book your accommodation
Plans in Egypt:
The land of the pyramids is often on traveller’s to-go lists. Famous sights like the Pyramids, the Sphinx, the Valley of the Kings, the Nile river and the great temple of Abu Simbel are really just the tip of the iceberg in a country where you come face to face with treasures of the ancient world every day.
There is much here to explore and be amazed by.
Egypt has a more varied climate than most travelers realize and really the best time to go is spring or autumn so the hot places aren’t too scorching and the cooler spots aren’t freezing.
The tourist high season is considered winter (December to February) and if you come out of season you will also enjoy cheaper hotel prices. Religious holidays aren’t too much of an inconvenience for travelers although the fasting month of Ramadan is best avoided when restaurants are closed and other opening hours erratic.
In summer it can get up to 40 degrees Celsius in dusty, polluted Cairo and Luxor and Aswan are equally unbearable.
So, the best option is to run to Egypt's one-of-a-kind Summer Spots located in North Coast, Marsa Allam, Marsa Matrouh, Sidi Heneish, Alexandria & Siwa, where you can enjoy sunny mornings and cozy nights.
While they are best visited in the winter, you need a little warmth to enjoy the beaches of Sinai and it’s typically a little too rainy on the coast of Alexandria during the winter. So the autumn or spring is a good compromise to be able to experience most areas comfortably.
