Summer 2021 in Egypt

Summer temperatures in Egypt, especially on the coast, can get hot. Visit coastal cities like Alexandria and Hurghada to cool off at the beautiful beaches. You can also enjoy scuba diving or snorkeling near the coral reefs of the Red Sea. You may also want to consider a cruise down the Nile River, a unique way to experience the country. To keep yourself cool in Egypt, be sure to drink some Asab Al Sokar, a refreshing local drink made from sugarcane.

Winter 2021 in Egypt

Winter temperatures in Egypt are a bit milder but still balmy. If you're not looking to hit the beach this winter, you may want to consider visiting the museums in Cairo or hiking up Mount Sinai.
