During a day trip to Aswan, we will run toward Aswan, one of the southernmost cities of Egypt. The town lies on the Nile’s shore on a particularly beautiful stretch of Palm Islands and a fleet of Felucca with white sails. The city’s character is more African than other cities in Egypt, as Nubians, a distinct ethnic group with its own language and customs, belongs in this area.

The oldest preserved part of the temple is dated back to the 4th. Century F.Kr. It is also known as one of the temples that were saved from the flood when the Great Aswan Dam was built.
After eating lunch at a local restaurant, we will continue our day trip to Aswan and drive to the 111 meter high Aswan Dam, a giant causeway across the Nile which was founded in 1960 and took 10 years to complete.
