Egypt lies in the extremely dry tropical climate zone, only the narrow northern coast belt belongs to the Mediterranean type of tropical climate climate.

Summer (May to October) is very hot and dry, the temperature during the day is 30 to 45 degrees Celsius.

Winter (December to March) is cooler, especially in desert regions, the temperature during the day is 15 to 25 degrees Celsius.

The most favorable tourist periods are spring (March, April) and autumn (October, November).

The temperature of the Red Sea ranges from 21 degrees in the winter to 28 (and sometimes up to 32) degrees Celsius in the summer.

Rainfall is extremely rare here.


Time difference

Egyptian, and english is + 2 hour.

However, it should be remembered that twice a year for less than a month this rule does not apply and the time in both countries is the same. This is due to the fact that in England changes to summer time are made during the last weekend of March, and in Egypt - on the last Thursday in April.

The same principle applies to changing to winter time.

NOTE: in 2012, there was no change to daylight saving time in Egypt
