Hi, I have to attend in a conference on the first week of August 2010 at Cairo. I also want to visit some places in Cairo like Pyramids, sphinx and the place Alexandria..... How would be the weather that time? Should I need to think about anything that should be taken extra care on this visit to Egypt at this time.
Waiting for the kind and useful feedback.

hi mr. hossain, the weather in egypt is some little hot during the day in summer but it is very moderate & nice during night.
The weather in August is very hot and can reach up to 38 degrees, and so I would come prepared for the heat. There are still quite a few tourists at the Pyramids at this time of year, though Alexandria is less touristy which will be nice.
I hope you have a great trip!
My wife and I want to go to Egypt when it is safe and we want to respect the citizens. What should we wear? Should my wife keep her head covered with a scarf? Is there a web site where I can get to know some people from Egypt? When will it be safe enough to go to all areas of Egypt? Are tourests liked, ignored, or disliked?

Hi Mike, Egypt is safe and stable now. more than 20 million christians live in Egypt and you know christian women don't cover their heads, so your wife can wear what she want.
All Tourists are welcome in Egypt.
Hello, I was wondering if anyone would know how much it would cost to stay in Alexandria for one week, in October? Where would be the best places to stay and eat at?
is a useful resource about the best months to visit various countries including Egypt.
hello Raquel, I recommend to stay in Paradise Maamora hotel. it is 4* deluxe hotel. LOTS of restaurants in Alexandria where you can eat like Sea fish market which is the best there.
If you like to visit the sightseeings in Alexandria, it is better it to book it from a travel agent to be guided by egyptologist tour guide and visit the masterpieces there like the catacomb, Library of Alexandria, the National Museum, Roman Theatre, Pompey Pillar, and Motazah.
Staying in Egypt from October to May can be costly affair. This time of the year the amount of tourists that visit Egypt gets doubled, so hotel and other places tend to increase their prices. Its always better to book hotel room or rental car as early as possible.

From December to the end of March it is winter but a mild one. It is sunny at day time with about 12-18 degrees. At night it is cool with about 7-10 degrees.
In April it is spring, but on the warm side. May is summer but pleasant.
In june it is mild summer with sudden heat waves.
July and August is hot with 38 degrees during the day and a bit less at night.
September, October and November a touch of the summer is still there but bearable.
In Sharm it is always more hot than Cairo.
Enjoy your trip.
hi i am going to sharm in feb kids half term. which is the best hotel to stay in which is near the beach, every hotel i have seen have VERY VERY bad rewiews the good hotels have very steep stair and lots of them. i want all inclusive. I want to go and see the piraminds in a plane but it sounds very costly. We are 4 adults and 3 kids aged 10, 8and 4. What else is there to see and do which is child friendly, my mom is scared of boat rides so is there any excertions that involve this. How much spending money should i take (we dont drink alcohal).
Is the weather nice in feb? And someone told me that old sharm is not very nice and where ever you go you keep needing a visa. And finally is there a mosque everywhere where my dad can pray his namaz. Thankyou so much who ever replys. xxxx
hi its me again just wanted to know is the food halal in egypt. And on the trips too? thanks
sure the food is halal in Egypt
yes its halal
Hi Nadia, weather in the winter season starting from october till April is very nice in Egypt especially resorts on the Red Sea like Sharm el Sheikh.
I suggest to stay in Naama bay (Tropicana Rosetta and Jasmine club). it is located second line on the beach and it is all inclusive hotel with very good service and reasonable prices. you can contact me if you like to book.
As you are on a low budget and like to visit Cairo to see the pyramids, we can arrange this trip by bus. you are 7 persons so the cost will be reasonable than the flight. besides, you can fly to Luxor and spend 4 nights on 5* nile cruise with very special prices.
Sharm el Sheikh now contains many restaurants and supermarkets selling products at its normal prices, so don't worry at all.
What is the minimum stay recommended for a first time visitor to Egypt to cover the Valley of the Kings, the Pyramids, the Sphinx and the temples of Luxor and Karnak including a Nile cruise? We are planning during the week of March 11th, 2012. How safe is the country for tourism currently?
can anyone tell me whats the temperature range like in egypt in september? i'm on a low budget travel plan, planning an egypt trip around september. also, if anyone could tell me, will peak season rates apply in september too? and i'd be really grateful if anyone could give an estimate at how much a 7 day trip should cost for a group of 04 adults (excluding to and fro airfare to egypt), covering the best of the visit places.

Is it safe to travel nowadays in Egypt?
Egypt is much more attractive from another countries & In Summer Season the weather is very hot but at night is might be cold & very enjoyable moments.
There is growing unrest in major cities in Egypt. Red Sea resort areas like Sharm el-Sheikh should be fine, but I would be wary of planning a holiday to Cairo in the near future as riots are a common occurrence at present
Thanks. We are American visitors and are definitely postponing our visit to another year what with the kidnapping at
Sharm el-Sheikh and the unrest around Cairo. Hope things get back to normal soon.

Shar, hope all is well. I see your comment about postponing your visit to Egypt. Really that is such a shame, despite these things that happen, there is thousands upon thousands of tourists in Egypt on a daily basis.
hi I'm a Muslim taken kids to sharm el shiekh.have booked all inclusive in 5*sea club resort, but now I'm hearing too many scary stories...that it's not suitable for muslims as there are too many clubbing, women in bikinis.....
can some one give me some information ?

The best time to visit Egypt is from October to May. Though it is the peak travel season, when most travellers come, the temperatures are a lot better for those not used to the heat. Within these 8 months there are 2 periods of what are known as High Season (the Christmas/New Year period and the Easter Period) when hotels and cruises will put their prices up, though you will find that special events like Gala Dinners are also laid on for their customers. This can mean that some hotels become really expensive and so making your reservations very early, even for the budget hotels, is strongly advised
