How to Enjoy March in Egypt

Published

Egypt

It is your favorite month of the year where the weather is neither too cold nor too hot. Both people who enjoy summer and enjoy winter as well will be capable of meeting each other half way and enjoying the weather this March!

The sun is out to tingle your skin yet the cold breeze will definitely keep you satisfied with the lovely combo! March isn’t only the month of fantastic weather; there are so many cool things you could do to enjoy yourself and have a great time.

Travel

For you travel junkies out there, March is one of the best seasons to go for an adventure! Since the weather is fairly pleasant, this is your time to go to locations such as Aswan, Alexandria, Luxor, and even Sharm el Sheikh! Usually these places are super hot all year long, which is why this is the ideal period to go travel around and enjoy the beautiful weather while soaking in the sun. From snorkeling to parasailing, you name it! Pack up your bag and hit the roadjack, a list of fun awaits you.

What to Do

It’s a great time to gather around with your loved ones and friends and do something you could all enjoy. Since the weather is doing great, Falukas are a great way to enjoy it! Music, sun, and a cold breeze is the perfect mixture! You could even go sightseeing to the Nile Tower for instance or maybe even go on a wonderful horse ride by the Pyramid of Giza. Such a tourist!
If you’re in to night life, there are so many places you could choose to chill out at. Cairo Jazz Club, the Tap, Unicorn Garden, and much more! Head to our calendar for the full list of things you could do and events you could go to this March!

Where to Eat

Rather than your typical cravings for McDonalds or even Pizza, choose to do something different. New chains and restaurants are opening on a monthly basis and there are even cool places that opened a while back but you must’ve never visited and probably disregarded other places since everyone’s a fan of McDonalds and unhealthy fast food chains. Daddy’s Burger, Lord of the Wings, and Chilis are delicious places that you could go to for the good kind of fast food rather than those greasy poisonous food chains we all tend to go to regularly.

Explore your options and enjoy the month of March as much as you can. The weather really will make things more enjoyable for your activities so enjoy the last bits of winter!

Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox churches have announced the suspension of masses and other services in both Cairo and Alexandria as of Monday and the suspension will last for a month.

The suspension comes in light of the rising numbers of Covid-19 cases among clergymen and churchgoers.

The Coptic Orthodox Church on Saturday released an official statement that says the suspension includes Sunday’s schools, meetings, services and masses, and that priests in each church are allowed one mass weekly with a minimal presence and a maximum of five deacons only.

As for funeral services, they’re allowed to be held but with the participation of only one priest and one deacon and of course the family of the deceased. However, the halls that are designated for mourning services will be closed until the improvement of current conditions.

For Baptism services, the maximum number allowed are four member of the baby’s family.

The statement added that study at institutes and educational centres will carry on but with a reduced maximum of 25%.

As for the dioceses, each bishop get to decide what is most suitable to the health situation in his diocese, in partnership with the congregation of priests.

We urge all worshipers to remain safe and adhere to all the precautionary measures needed.
