Weather October

I have been told it gets dark early in October. Has anyone got experience of an October holiday in Hurghada? Is Sharm similar? Thanks in advance. Chris

Hurgada and .Sharm must be quite similar. Its about 5 but you can check exactly on timeanddate.com

As its relatively near the equator, light and dark are relatively more even than in the UK.

Hi Chris

We go in October and it's not really early that it get's dark. The sun starts going down about half four and then dark about half five I guess, poss a bit later but depending when in Oct you are there.

It's a great time to go as the weather is still touching the 30s during the day and comfortable at night without the need for a cardigan.

Thank you for your reply. Have been to Turkey before but weather can be mixed. Hoping for it to be more settled in October. First time to Egypt - hoping it will be safe

Def not same as Turkey. I've also been there in October and it's very different to Egypt. We had some rain in Turkey in Oct but you won't get that in Egypt!

It's safe, don't worry. As long as you are not off to Cairo or Luxor theres no need to worry. Which hotel are you staying in?

Thanks Lesley - stopping at Iberotel Aquamarine - but some poor reviews lately. Do you know it?
