The Aswan Valley

A travel blog entry by winegalcj


For some reason which has yet to reveal itself, the lower half of Egypt is called the Upper Nile. Maybe it's because the river flows that way, but I don’t know.

It’ obvious to any observer that without the Nile, Egypt would be Arizona, albeit with camels instead of horses and headscarves instead of cowboy hats. There is nothing …

The Nile baby

A travel blog entry by nacrobat


Just finishing up a fairly chilled out 4 days here in Aswan at what used to be the southern most boundary of ancient Egypt's empire. There's been good and bad here - the bad is courtesy of the relentless touts and many restos and shops trying to rip tourists off. I understand the concept of haggling in shops for stuff but here it in almost every …

Exploring Nubia & cruising up the Nile by felucca

A travel blog entry by wenzels


Aswan is the main city in Nubia, the southernmost part of Egypt whose population with its own language and culture reaches into the Sudan as far south as Khartoum and into the Tchad.
People here are black African rather than Arabic in their appearance. We have found Nubians to be very friendly, relaxed and warm people. And we were blessed with …

The Nubian "Grand Tour" 01

A travel blog entry by kazbar212


Wow, there's a 3am. Possibly too late at Emy last night, and both of us grabbed our take-away breakfast (thanks Hotel Hathor) and promptly forgot to eat it as we slept straight away on the bus. The drive to Abu Simbel takes about 4 hours, and the buses have to drive in mini convoys as part of the safety requirements of the Egyptian Army. Sensible …

    Good value..we got a really good room - #410 - partial view of Nile but much quieter than rooms with full view. Double bed was super comfy and ensuite bathroom...brekkie is included but just the basics..wifi is 10 egp for the entire stay, only in lobby but good strength...super fast and rel;atively cheap (for middle east) laundry - 1.5 egp per piece. Staff are all nice and not too pushy with the usual tours they offer. We didn't use any..went for feluca trip with someone else...oh there's a great rooftop area with a pool even...not the best but hey, for 100 egp for the room per night, all in all pretty good value..

    Great Views, as good as any of the expensive hotels over the river. The room was clean and huge, with a double bed. The facilities are a little rudimentary, but unless you are sick then your really not in your room much anyway. The staff are great and breakfast the standard Egyptian kickstart of egg, bread, tea and juice. Good cheap option for Aswan.
