With its warm temperature and exotic plant islands, Aswan is a country of beauty and charm and a symbol of the Middle East. Rock Nile islands are also present all around the city, from the high dam to Edfu's north. While others work in the government, certain Nubian communities and islands make their living via farming and the sale of handcrafted goods.
The neighboring islands, as well as the main city of Aswan, provide comprehensive services, including hospitals, schools, and transportation. Some of the islands are deserted because they are archaeological locations, such as the crocodile and elephantine islands, which served as a commerce route between Egypt and the rest of Africa. Aswan, along with Luxor, is considered as the main gateway to southern Egypt and an important economic source for the country.
Egypt is a must-see trip, with its magnificent pyramids, massive temples, and the world-famous Nile river cruise. Egypt is a must-see destination for all travellers; it is located in the north-eastern section of the African subcontinent. Egypt is predominantly a tourist destination known for the renowned Pyramids of Giza, Egypt Nile Cruises, The Great Sphinx of Giza, and Cairo's Egyptian Museum.
The best way to see the Nile is aboard a luxury cruise that travels between Aswan's historic landmarks.

The two-nights felucca sailing excursion begins at 2 p.m., when passengers meet the felucca crew on the Aswan Corniche for snacks and welcome beverages (of variety of chips, nuts and a fruit bowl).
The felucca travels down the Nile towards the Aswan Bridge after the guests have had their welcome drinks. Traditional felucca sailing may be enjoyed by guests while reclining back and relaxing. While cruising and in between meals, cold beverages, tea, and coffee can be purchased for a small price on the felucca; however, tourists are encouraged to bring their own drinks and snacks.
Before crossing the Aswan Bridge, visitors can have tea, get henna tattoos, and/or smoke sheesha in a traditional Nubian village.
After seeing the Nubian Village, we set sail towards the Aswan Bridge, where we will spend the night. Dinner is then served, with all beverages included in the price. Guests may relax after dinner or join in on the singing and dancing around the bonfire with the felucca crew. Visitors are provided new pillows and blankets to sleep on after the bonfire celebrations.
Breakfast (drinks included) is served between 7 and 8 a.m., and after breakfast, we set sail for Aswan. Again, while sailing and in between meals, cold drinks, tea, and coffee can be purchased for a modest price on the felucca.
After breakfast on the second day, the felucca departs towards Kom Ombo Temple.
The felucca anchors on the Nile's sandy banks before arriving to Kom Ombo Temple, where passengers can swim if they choose and where lunch will be served. When young guys spread out the community's products on the beach, there is an opportunity to purchase locally crafted man jewelry from surrounding towns. Purchasing jewelry is optional; it is not required.
The felucca returns to Kom Ombo Temple after lunch. The felucca anchors here for the second night, and like on the first, tourists can either relax after supper or join in the singing and dancing around the campfire. After all of this, it's time for bed.
The next morning, breakfast is served, followed by a visit to the Kom Ombo Temple, an ancient temple built between 180 and 47 BC and dedicated to two deities, the falcon-headed god Horus and the crocodile-headed god Sobek.
Please bear in mind that this is not a tour with a guide. It is feasible to arrange for a guide to explain the temple's history to visitors.
When we return to Aswan on the third day/night, we will spend the night anchored underneath the Aga Khan Mausoleum, where supper will be served.
After breakfast the next morning, travelers will board a motor boat to explore the Nubian Village, which has a range of market-style businesses where tourists may purchase traditional hand-made Nubian arts and crafts. While at the Nubian Village, lunch will be given at one of the traditional Nubian cafes.
After lunch, board the motor boat and return to the Aswan Corniche, where the three-night felucca sailing tour comes to an end.
Destinations to visit
Kom Ombo Temple
Kom Ombo, one of Ancient Egypt's most remarkable temples, was mostly constructed during the Ptolemaic Dynasty from 180 to 47 BCE, however there is evidence that it stood atop an older temple.
The temple is notable for its devotion to two distinct deities: the local crocodile-headed god Sobek and the Kingdom's first "god," the falcon-headed divinity Horus the Elder (also called Haroeris).
Apart from having a twin temple, the complex's layout is similar to that of the latter. One of the highlights of a visit to this temple is the Crocodile Museum, which displays some of the hundreds of mummified crocodiles unearthed nearby.
The Temple of Horus at Edfu
The Temple of Horus at Edfu is regarded as one of the most well-preserved Ancient Egyptian temples. The edifice was buried under over 40 feet (12 meters) of desert sand and Nile silt for 200 years, which helped to preserve it to near-perfection. The complex's biggest temple is devoted to Horus, one of Egypt's most prominent historic deities; sculptures of the falcon-headed god may be seen throughout.
Hatshepsut's funerary temple is regarded as a work of art in ancient building. Its three huge terraces rise above the desert bottom and into Deir el-cliffs. Bahari's The entire structure points across the Nile to the massive Eighth Pylon. The major east-west axis was used to welcome Amun-barque Re's during the Festival of the Valley's finale.
The Colossi of Memnon
The Colossi of Memnon are two massive sculptures of 18th Dynasty Pharaoh Amenhotep III that were initially built to protect his funeral temple on the Nile's western bank, opposite Luxor.
Two huge sculptures of Pharaoh Amenhotep III are among the most stunning sites in Luxor, Egypt, on the west bank of the Nile. They were erected to protect his funeral shrine and are believed to weigh 720 tons apiece. Archaeologists are still excavating the complex, which is one of the world's most important archaeological sites.
The Karnak temple
The Karnak temple, devoted to the deity Amon, his wife Mut, and their son Khonsu, is the grandest example of adoration in history. It was constructed between the commencement of the Middle Kingdom and the Graeco Roman Kingdom. Enjoy seeing Ramses II's Obelisk in front of the 1st Pilon. You will be returned to your hotel at the end of your trip.
The Luxor Temple was erected during the time of Ramses I, "The Magnificent," who governed Egypt during the calm and stable 18th Dynasty. It was devoted to the Theban triad: the mighty deity Amon-Ra, his wife Mut, and their son Khonsu. During the 19th Dynasty, Ramses II built a new court and entrance. He constructed two granite obelisks with his names and titles, as well as six huge sculptures of himself, four standing and two reclining.
The Aswan Dam is located on the Nile River, just south of Aswan. The Aswan Low Dam was finished in 1902, while the Aswan High Dam was finished in 1970. Between 1960 and 1970, the High Dam was built. Its goal was to promote hydroelectric power generation, manage Nile floods, and boost agricultural productivity.
The Temple of Isis, devoted to the goddess of love and located on a beautiful island, was almost destroyed by floods when the Aswan Dam was erected in the 1960s. Fortunately, it was saved, and it is now one of Egypt's most magnificent and well-preserved ancient sanctuaries.
The Temple of Isis was one of the final temples dedicated to the Isis religion. It was revered for resurrecting her husband Osiris after he was slain and mutilated by his brother Seth. The hypostyle hall's columns are remarkably well-preserved, and reliefs depicting musical scenes in the Temple of Hathor have survived much of their old grandeur.
