When winter season is upon us, we usually find ourselves searching for winter destinations and wonderlands. Egypt is one of the most popular and oldest tourist destinations throughout the world, especially in winter, as it is the time when some Egyptian cities truly shine.
Here are the Egyptian cities which look more stunning in winter.
Luxor and Aswan cities are located in southern Egypt. They have nearly half of the world’s monuments and they are the best place to spend your vacation, especially in the winter, because of their warm weather throughout the year; the sun rises up to 11 hours a day during summer, and rises for more than 8 hours a day in winter.
Aswan was known as Syene during ancient Egypt which means market because it was located on the main trade route between Egypt and the southern lands. After the construction of the High Dam, Nubians fled to Aswan after water flooded their homeland. Therefore, this city is rich with Nubian culture.
It is a resort town in the southern coast of Sinai Peninsula. Sharm El-Sheikh is one of the world’s extraordinary diving destinations. It is rather hot in summer and warm in winter, which leads it to be one of the most attractive cities in Egypt, especially in winter.
Dahab means gold in Arabic. The city derived its name from its yellow shiny sand. It is the second most treasured diving destination in south Sinai after Sharm El-Sheikh.
