Experience Your Best Egypt Vacation

The ancient monuments erected by former pharaohs of Egypt and the surrounding lands provide the biggest draw to the nation. Pyramids and tombs are located throughout the desert region, and the fascination with the ancient culture of these lands drives many visitors from abroad. Others come to visit modern Cairo and participate in the many events the region offers. Let Orbitz.com help you plan your next adventure to this land.

Best time to take a trip to Egypt

Temperatures in Egypt range from nighttime and winter lows of 32 degrees Fahrenheit to summer highs of 109 degrees in the desert regions. Coastal areas may experience much lower temperatures during the summer due to breezes from the sea, but travelers should prepare for warm to hot weather throughout the year. Many tourists avoid the heat of the summer and opt to travel in the milder late fall to early spring months. Ramadan observances draw many visitors to the country, and Christian churches host elaborate celebrations at Mount Sinai according to their calendars for Christmas and Easter. Catch these annual happenings when you book your travel to Egypt with Orbitz.com.
