Aswan

Aswan, in southern Egypt, stands on a particularly beautiful stretch of the east bank of the Nile. Once a military station, it still houses a garrison of the Egyptian army due to its strategic location.

Decorated with palm-fringed islands it has more of an African ambiance with its numerous Nubian inhabitants. With their own language and customs, it provides a different cultural experience.

Although Aswan is every bit as touristy as Luxor, the town and its inhabitants are far more laid back and pleasant. A picturesque city, its attraction lies not so much in its historical sites, but in the peacefulness of a felucca cruise at sunset, a visit to the colourful market (Sharia el-Souq), or dinner at one of the floating restaurants on the Nile. It is a perfect base to visit to the magnificent Sun Temple of Ramses II, Abu Simbel.
