A stay in Aswan – once the southern frontier of Ancient Egypt - is a total contrast to the north of the country and offers the chance to experience the colours and culture of the Middle East alongside those of Africa, particularly when exploring the city’s amazing souqs. Aswan can either be the start or end point of a Nile cruise aboard the Steam Ship Sudan and is a wonderful contrast to the city of Luxor further north. The city marks the beginning of the Nubia region, which boasts a rich history and culture, to which the remarkable Nubian Museum bears witness today. During your stay you can explore Philae Temple,
sail in a felucca (a traditional wooden sailing boat) on the Nile to explore islands dotted along the water, or head into the desert to discover the timeless temples at Abu Simbel.
