Egypt has a lot of places to visit during the winter season. From Aswan to Nuweiba, there are many winter wonderlands to explore. Here is a guide to the best places to visit in Egypt during the winter season.
Aswan city is a great winter destination because of its warm temperatures, with an average temperature of 25 Celsius during the day. There is something for everyone in Aswan, whether you are interested in Egyptology and want to visit Abu Simbel Temple, or modern history and want to explore the Aswan Dam. You can also immerse yourself in the colorful local culture in the Nubian Village. Aswan is one of the hottest and driest places in Egypt, so it is best to visit during the winter season from November to April.
Dahab is a popular winter escape for Egyptians, despite the cold waters and an average daytime temperature of 20 Celsius during winter. The town has grown into a diverse tourist destination over the past few decades, offering a warm and satisfying gastronomic experience with its multicultural list of restaurants.
Night expeditions into canyons or other star-gazing destinations, aided by a bonfire and Bedouin tea, often offer magical moments.
Nuweiba is located just a 50-minute (70km) ride away from Dahab. It is a full-on coastal retreat where you can go to escape from society. Unlike Dahab, which is expanding as a town, Nuweiba's method of tourism is through coastal camps and eco-lodges that serve as a retreat.
