Snorkeling or diving in the Red Sea must be the most enjoyable thing in October (See also Things to Do in the Red Sea). In Hurghada, there are many water projects for visitors to enjoy themselves. People who like snorkeling very much cannot miss the dolphin house reef, there are beautiful reefs and tourists also have chances to swim with dolphins. Paradise Island is also a good place, in which there are many amazing coral reef. Extreme sports enthusiasts can also surf at the sea. For people who are not very good at swimming, they can have a trip on the Simba Submarine. It is the only submarine in Egypt and even in North Africa, with a diving depth of 25-30 meters and a diving duration of about 45 minutes.
As the Egypt climate in October is not too hot any more, it is one of the best months to go to the deserts. Black and White Desert is the most famous desert in Egypt. In addition to ordinary yellow sand, Black and White Desert are also covered with black volcanic stones and white mushroom stones formed by wind erosion. The night sky in the desert is the most surprising, like a dome dotted with diamonds. The stars are so bright and low that it seem can be picked at the touch of a hand. Baharya Oasis is an oasis not far away and is one of the ten famous oases in the world. The famous Gold Mummies were found there. There are also many hot springs in the oasis.
