Egypt

Long before the birth of Christ, travellers were drawn to this extraordinary country for the mysterious monuments, the pyramids, Sphinx, and ancient Luxor along the River Nile. Ancient Egypt is one layer of this fascinating country. There are also the remains of ancient Greek and Roman cultures, early Christian churches and Islamic culture.

The regularity and richness of the annual Nile River flood, coupled with semi-isolation provided by deserts to the east and west, allowed for the development of one of the world's great civilizations. A unified kingdom arose circa 3200 BC and a series of dynasties ruled in Egypt for the next three millennia. The last native dynasty fell to the Persians in 341 BC, who in turn were replaced by the Greeks, Romans, and Byzantines.

It was the Arabs who introduced Islam and the Arabic language in the 7th century and who ruled for the next six centuries. A local military caste, the Mamluks took control about 1250 and continued to govern after the conquest of Egypt by the Ottoman Turks in 1517.

Following the completion of the Suez Canal in 1869, Egypt became an important world transportation hub, but also fell heavily into debt. Ostensibly to protect its investments, Britain seized control of Egypt's government in 1882, but nominal allegiance to the Ottoman Empire continued until 1914.

Partially independent from the UK in 1922, Egypt acquired full sovereignty following World War II.

  Egypt Overview
Weather

Although the Mediterranean areas have milder weather and more rain, the climate is mainly hot and dry, especially in winter. In spring, hot sandy winds, the khamsin, blow from the desert. The rain in Egypt falls mainly on the coast.Everywhere south of Cairo is far too hot from June to August, especially Luxor and Aswan, so winter (December-February) is definitely the best time to visit these areas. Also, the Mediterranean coast is crowded in summer, while winter in Cairo can get pretty cool. March to May is the best time to enjoy the warm days without the crush of bodies on the beaches and the midday heat of high summer.
