ClimateThe country has basically two seasons — a mild winter from November to April and a hot summer from May to October. Daytime temperatures are what vary during the seasons and the nights are generally cool. Siroccos (hot spring winds) occur mostly in April.
TransportGetting around the larger cities and resort towns is best done by taxi. Cairo has a metro and Alexandria, trams. The bus system does connect most of the country but schedules can be quite unreliable. The train service is an infinitely better option for long distance travel as is the domestic air service.
Best time to travelOctober to April when temperatures are pleasant is the best time to visit though from December to January the sights can get extremely crowded. The shoulder months of June and September will be cheaper but very uncomfortable temperature-wise.
What to wearDress ultra-conservatively at all times and a sturdy pair of closed walking shoes for the rough and dusty terrain is recommended.
