About Aswan

A mid-size city situated on the banks of the Nile River in Egypt, Aswan is a true hub of culture and ancient history. There are a number of archaeological sites in Aswan, but it lacks the urban chaos of Cairo, making it an ideal destination for those who want to explore Egypt's rich history away from the hustle and bustle.

Visitors can take a traditional boat ride along the river to see the ruins of the Temple of Khnum, which dates back to 180 B.C.; check out Elephantine Island, which served as the cult center of the ancient god Khnum; visit the Nubian Museum; go for a camel ride at the Nubian Village or visit the Aswan Market where locals shop for food, spices and other goods.

Amazing Dam constructions by the Russians. It was worth having mobile internet to read up on the history, wars, and politics that led up to it being built by the Russians instead of the UK or the US.... Read More
