It may be best to look for winter flight deals to Egypt, as it can be extremely hot in the summer months. There are plenty of popular events in Egypt in the cooler months, starting with the Coptic Christmas on or around 7 January. The weather is still relatively cool in March and April, a perfect time to catch D-CAF – the Downtown Cairo Festival, with a satellite festival in downtown Alexandria. Unusual downtown venues are commissioned to house art exhibitions, performances, music and singing. The event is beloved of Cairenes for its inventiveness and the opportunity to get inside spaces usually off-limits to the general public. The Cairo International Film Festival, one of Africa’s most prestigious, is held each Autumn, usually in November. Expect to see glamourous people from all over the world attending the many premiers and screenings. In October, the Cairo Jazz Festival is held at the American University of Cairo near Tahrir Square. A very different event also takes place each winter – the Pharoah’s Rally, with rally cars from all over the world competing in a gruelling rally across the desert, starting and finishing at the Pyramids.
Sometimes, the simplest meals are the most memorable. In the case of Egypt, it’s the beautiful, fragrant, freshly baked flatbreads that can be found everywhere. They’re used in place of a fork to scoop up delicious Egyptian dips such as hummus, baba-ghanoush (smoky aubergine) and colourful beetroots dips. Egyptians also make the best fava bean soups and stews, and you must try the vibrant green ‘molokhia’, or mallow leaf soup. Made from simple ingredients, it is delicious and nutritious. Khoshari is a finely balanced mixture of rice, lentils, and pasta, served with tomato sauce and garnished with fried onions. It is so important that it is usually eaten in restaurants dedicated entirely to this one dish. Not all Egyptian cuisine is based on vegan ingredients, however. There is a long tradition of grilled meat, especially lamb, meat-filled filo pastry pies and carefully spiced meat stews that simmer for hours in their earthenware pots until they are ready to be shared with friends and family. The Copts keep pigs and sell pork, so, unusually for the Arab World, there are some indigenous pork recipes too.
Of course, Egypt’s most famous and iconic symbols are the pyramids. Greater Cairo now encroaches on the pyramids at Giza, so it’s easy to take a taxi to see them. You can reach them on foot from the taxi rank or take a longer route on horseback, adding drama to the sudden glimpse of the ancient pyramids and the Sphinx. People never tire of Cairo and its intense city vibe, but nevertheless, they are always happy to take a trip southward to Upper Egypt or the Land of the Bullrushes as it was called in ancient times. It offers the opportunity to visit the Valley of the Kings and see modern-day Egypt as you travel through small towns and villages by road or rail or even sailing along the Nile. Egypt is famous for its culture and history but is also marvellous for diving. Look for Egypt flight deals to Sharm el-Sheikh on the Red Sea coast and enjoy some of the best diving experiences of your life.
You can get a three-month tourist visa from the Egyptian consulate or the official Visa2Egypt portal before your trip or on arrival at the airport. It is also vital to check the expiry date on your passport as it must be valid for a minimum of six months after the date you enter Egypt.
