Aswan is set on a beautiful stretch of the Nile River where palm-fringed islands and white-sailed feluccas stand out against a stunning desert backdrop. As Egypt’s southernmost city, Aswan offers a unique frontier feel and a distinctly African character. The pace of life here is laid-back and relaxing - you can spend your days strolling along the broad Corniche, sipping tea at a riverside cafe or sailing around Elephantine Island in a felucca. History lovers will enjoy the Nubian Museum while the vibrant souk is a hive of sounds and colours just waiting to be explored. Aswan is the ideal starting point for a Nile Cruise and is the gateway to the attractions of southern Egypt including Lake Nasser, the High Dam and the famous temples at Philae and Abu Simbel.
