Things to see

Aswan and the surrounding area have a number of attractions which are popular with visitors; including the Nubian villages on Elephantine Island, the Botanical Gardens on Kitchener Island and the famous High Dam. There are also a number of ancient monuments; these include the once submerged Temple of Philae, St Simeon's Monastery and the Tombs of the Nobles, the impressive Abu Simbel Temple and the Unfinished Obelisk.

Out and about

Aswan is not a large town and can easily be navigated by foot, while some of the sights are a little out of town and reachable by taxi or organised tour, and for the sights on the West Bank or the river islands a motor-boat or felucca are necessary to cross the Nile.

The main market in Aswan is known as the 'Shaira as-Souq', a colourful, bustling market offering Nubian handicrafts, Nubian Talisman, clothes and spices.

Dining out in Aswan, there are a variety of restaurants to be found along the corniche offering both Egyptian and international cuisines, served with serene views across the Nile River.
