Egypt Is The Perfect Country To Visit In The Fall
- on Nov 28, 2022
Egypt is a country that we all found out about during our schooling years. With an extensive history, dating back 7,000 years, architectural marvels which include 1 of the Seven Wonders of the World, vast views, fantastic food, incredible culture, and magical myths, it makes sense that Egypt features on many people’s bucket lists. Rebecca, an avid traveler says that “Egypt is a part of history every person should see”.
Many people suggest visiting Egypt during the winter since it is cooler. But, this is also the peak season for tourists. This is why we have put together 5 great reasons to rather visit Egypt in the fall.
Most people will tell you to visit Egypt in the winter because it’s cooler. But it’s also peak tourism season. That’s why we’re sharing 5 reasons why you should visit Egypt in the fall, instead.
It Is Not As Hot
During the months of summer, the temperature in Egypt can rise to 122 degrees Fahrenheit (with an average of 104 degrees). That is uncomfortably hot, and the exact reason why many tourists choose to rather visit in the winter. But you can also tour Egypt in the fall. During this time the temperature starts to drop to levels that are more moderate.
So what can you expect from the weather in Egypt in September? During the fall the temperatures range between 68 to 91 degrees in Cairo with little rain and loads of sunshine. During October and November, the temperature cools down further, with a nighttime low that hovers around 51 degrees in the later part of November.
This cooler weather can make exploring the Pyramids in the desert or the bustling streets of Cairo, or taking a tour of the ancient tombs a lot more enjoyable and comfortable.
It Is Not That Cold Either
Another reason that is weather-related to rather visit Egypt during the fall has to do with temperatures at night that can drop to as low as just below freezing during winter, but usually won’t drop below the 50s during the fall, and it stays even warmer if you are visiting down south. Not too cold or too hot, is ultimately the very best time to pay Egypt a visit. The Desert Rose Resort is a luxury resort in Egypt. There are high-quality food and drink venues in it. It offers a choice of 11 bars including a shisha bar, a pub, and several outdoor bars
The fall is also a fantastic time of the year to visit Alexandria, which is usually a pretty damp area over the months of winter. The weather in the West Bank, Luxor, and Abu Simbel, as well as close to the Red Sea coast is usually close to perfect during the fall. And keep in mind that “mild weather” can mean that you can also pack lighter.
It Is A Lot Less Crowded
If you are thinking about what you might be able to see and do in Egypt in September, the answer to this question is everything, but without having to deal with massive crowds.
If you do not enjoy crowded places or busy sites, the fall is a better time to visit, since there are far fewer tourists around. You will escape the rush of winter, and avoid the blazing summer heat. Many of us know that being stuck in crowded, hot places isn’t exactly fun.
With fewer crowds to contend with, you will also be awarded doing things in your own time. You will have iconic places like the Pyramids of Giza just about to yourself. With fewer people around, you can also enjoy better photo opportunities. Traveler Ralph says “point your camera in any direction at the Pyramids of Giza and you will capture breathtaking photos”. He also states that overall, this Go-Ahead tour was one of the best he has ever been on.
So whether you are eating freshly baked, warm pita in Cairo, learning a few interesting facts about iconic sites like the Pyramids of Giza, or taking in the mystical artifacts at Luxor Museum, you can enjoy all these things without feeling like you are rushed. At the beginning of November, the crowds start picking up again, but it won’t pick up fully until the middle of November.
It Is Cheaper
The fall is still technically regarded as off-season travel, which means you get to enjoy lower prices. When you visit during the fall, everything will be open, while the tours start picking up. This means you get to do all the things you wanted to do at a lower price.
