Taba Heights Snorkeling and Abandoned Villa of Sheraton Sharm El Sheikh

By Victor and Irina

Autumn in Egypt is the same way colorful, as European, but we definitely prefer the one in Egypt. What a sea color, even the sand is bright, and what a variety of colors under the sea! :-)

October-November might be the best time to visit Egypt for snorkeling and excursions. It is not so hot in Cairo, Alexandria, Luxor, Taba Heights or Sharm El Sheikh, however the sea is still soft and warm.

Grand Day in Egypt Luxor Temple

Egypt Luxor with its temples is probably one of the biggest open museums in the whole world. There is no other place on the Earth with such number and preservation of monuments.
