The Arab Republic of Egypt, is a transcontinental country spanning the northeast corner of Africa and southwest corner of Asia by a land bridge formed by the Sinai Peninsula. Egypt is a Mediterranean country bordered by the Strip and Israel to the northeast, the Gulf of Aqaba to the east, the Red Sea to the east and south, Sudan to the south, and Libya to the west. Across the Gulf of Aqaba lies Jordan, and across from the Sinai Peninsula lies Saudi Arabia, although Jordan and Saudi Arabia do not share a land border with Egypt.
Egypt has one of the longest histories of any modern country, arising in the tenth millennium BC as one of the world's first nation states. Considered a cradle of civilization, Ancient Egypt experienced some of the earliest developments of writing, agriculture, urbanization, organized religion and central government. Iconic monuments such as the Giza Necropolis and its Great Sphinx, as well the ruins of Memphis, Thebes, Karnak, and the Valley of the Kings, reflect this legacy and remain a significant focus of archaeological study and popular interest worldwide. Egypt's rich cultural heritage is an integral part of its national identity, having endured, and at times assimilated, various foreign influences, including Greek, Persian, Roman, Arab, Ottoman, and European. Although Christianized in the first century of the Common Era, it was subsequently Islamized due to the conquests of the seventh century.

Weather in Egypt: Egypt generally has a hot desert climate The climate is generally dry in most of the country except on the northern Mediterranean coast which receives more rainfall in winter.
Greatly moderate temperatures throughout the year. Because of this effect, average low temperatures vary from 9.5 °C (49.1 °F) during wintertime to 23 °C (73.4 °F) to summertime and average high temperatures vary from 17 °C (62.6 °F) during wintertime to 32 °C (89.6 °F) in summertime. Though temperatures are moderated along the coasts, the situation changes in the interior of the country which are away from the moderating northerly winds.
Best Time to Come: Egypt is a rather large country with two general seasons; a mild winter and a sunny summer. The majority of Egypt’s landscape is a desert, except for the White Mediterranean coast, the Nile Valley and the Delta.
Between November and March the daytimes are pleasantly mild, whereas evenings and nights are cool and enjoyable in all of Egypt.
In April and May temperatures are generally mild and this is an ideal time to visit any destination in Egypt.
From June to September the weather is very hot, dry in the desert areas and humid in the Nile Valley and on the White Mediterranean coast. Sunglasses, sunscreen, a hat and good hydration are essential, and trips to the desert areas aren’t a good idea in that period of the year.
Late September and October, as well as April and May are thus ideal for touring Egypt. And the November to February period offers the pleasant balmy weather that is perfect for cruising down the Nile.
The Red Sea Riviera has great weather all year round; it is thus the perfect sun & sea destination to escape to when the sky gets too cloudy back in your homeland.
