During June in Egypt, there are plenty of exciting activities and attractions to explore. As summer is in full swing, it’s important to keep the rising temperatures in mind and plan accordingly. However, don’t let the heat discourage you from visiting Egypt, as this month offers a unique experience with fewer crowds and more budget-friendly options. Take advantage of the quieter tourist season to enjoy sites without the swarming crowds and savor meals at the best restaurants without long queues.
To beat the heat, it’s recommended to engage in desert activities, like visiting the Pyramids, earlier in the day or during the cooler evenings. This way, you can still experience the thrill of desert adventures while having ample time to explore the cooler coastal regions.
