Luxor - Edfu (32)

Aswan, Egypt’s sunniest southern city and ancient frontier town has a distinctively African atmosphere. Small enough to walk around and graced with

the most beautiful setting on the Nile, the pace of life is slow and relaxing.

Days can be spent strolling up and down the broad Cornich watching the sailboats etch the sky with their tall masts or sitting in floating restaurants

listening to Nubian music and eating freshly caught fish.

Here the Nile is at its most beautiful, flowing through amber desert and granite rocks, round emerald islands covered in palm groves and tropical plants.

Explore the souk, full of scent and color of spices, perfumes, scarves and basket,

view the spectacular sunsets while having tea

on the terrace of the Old Cataract hotel.

Aswan has been a favorite winter resort since the beginning of the nineteenth century and it is still a perfect place to get away from it all.

People in Aswan are the most decent in all of Egypt due to the tranquility of the place and the relaxing atmosphere. They are kind and helpful so don’t be embarrassed to ask for directions or information from any body in the street they will be glad to reply.
