Summer holiday in Egypt – pros and cons
Let’s try to summarize the summer minuses and summer advantages of rest in this country, focusing exclusively on «Seasonal factor». That is, without touching the advantages and disadvantages of rest in Egypt, we speak only about summer.

However, it should be considered that the resort areas where the most tourists visiting Egypt prefers to relax, are located on the Red Sea coast, where the dry tropical desert climate, softened by the sea breeze. This means that summer +30°With in Moscow can deliver you more problems than those same +40°C in Sharma or Hurghada.
The specifics of Egypt’s attractions are such that many of them are in a desert or semi-desert area (for example, the pyramids in Giza), and in the summer, it is clear, there is usually a severe heat. This, of course, serious minus.
However, this circumstance can be taken into account yet when choosing the tour or excursion program in place. The most, perhaps, a suitable summer tour for unusual for the heat of ours is climbing the mountain of Sinai, with a visit to the desert monastery of Saint Catherine. With this choice of heat will not be a hindrance, because the ascent on Sinai begins at night to give tourists the opportunity to meet the dawn on top. Temperature at night on top usually does not exceed +23°C, so the climb will be quite comfortable.
