We usually go to Luxor for some winter sunshine, usually December, then sometimes book a hotel down in Aswan in the middle as it is even warm down there.

Look at

wunderground.com/global/stations/62405.html

There is a history section so you can look at previous temperatures, but remembering that the temperature stated is in the shade. You will find Luxor and Aswan slightly warmer than the red sea area. But can still get a little chilly at night.

Hi Lynn,

We regularly go to Naama Bay in Sharm over for two weeks over Christmas....... Hubby is an electrician, and can safely have a couple of weeks off at this time....... it's always beautifully warm with NO rain at all...... we love to swim/snorkel in the sea each day (there's such fantastic sealife just off the shore to see !!!!!) and always come home with a fab tan....... Our youngest daughter was born on Christmas Day - so for her we could just celebrate her birthday as it's a Muslim country and doesn't celebrate Christmas as we do at home !!!!!!

There are trips available to see the sites like Cairo & Luxor.

Link to the Tips & General Advice “Sticky” thread at the top of the forum (with a little orange pin icon at its side), above all other topics. The thread is now in alphabetical subject order for clarity.
