The best time to visit Egypt’s sites (Cairo, Red Sea Resort and Nile Cities) is from February to April and again between October and November. During these months, the sky and seas are perfectly blue. Wintertime temperatures (December to February) are mild and can be overcast. Note that December is peak season and rates are at their highest during this time.
