Aswan is the colourful jewel of the Nile. Flowing through golden desert and around enchanting emerald islands, the Nile forms the lifeline of Aswan and its unique archipelago. Aswan is an Egyptian city located south of the country, 880 Km (547 miles) south of Cairo and 185 Km (115 miles) south of Luxor. The area is also known as Upper Egypt. Aswan sits on the east bank of the Nile at the first cataract and is a busy tourist centre and a major travel hub.
 
The southern area of Aswan and its surroundings was known as the country of Nubia in ancient times. It’s a city that witnessed many civilisations come-and-go since prehistoric times. It has however preserved its original traditional heritage. Aswan has a mixed and diverse population with a distinct Nubian flavour. It has therefore an African atmosphere which is different from the rest of Egypt. The pace of life is slow and relaxing.
 
Tourist visit Aswan to explore the Philae and Kalabsha temples, the Unfinished Obelisk, the scented Old Bazaar, and colourful Nubian villages. A day trip to Abu Simbel is also a Must. Another unique adventure is to sail in a felucca and visit tropical-like islands such as Lord Kitchener's Island (Botanical Garden), and the Elephantine Island. Camel rides to the Monastery of St. Simeon and the Tombs of the Nobles are also recommended. You can also have a one-in-a-lifetime felucca Nile cruise to Kom Ombo or Edfu.
 
The weather in Aswan is very dry and hot in summer. Between May and October the average temperature is 45°C (115°F) during the day. In winter, between November and April, the temperature average is 25°C (75°F) during the day.  Sand storms may occur between February and April.
 
Two or three days are enough to explore the city highlights, including a day tour to Abu Simbel.
