- Nile cruises and Abu Simbel
The report highlighted the Nile and Abu Simbel cruises, as it indicated that Aswan is located in the far south of Egypt, directly on the Nile River, which makes it an excellent starting point for interesting and varied tours, and visitors can take Nile cruises to the temples of Kom Ombo and even north to Luxor.

The four 20-meter-high statues of Pharaoh Ramesses II at the main entrance to the temple are an incomparable sight and rightly ranked among the most famous tourist attractions in the country.
He concluded: “Aswan itself is full of treasures that must be discovered, such as the tomb of the Aga Khan on the west bank of the Nile, or the Nubian Archaeological Museum, which sheds light on the history of the Nubian population, who make up a large part of the population of Aswan. The city also includes many islands in the Nile, Like Elephantine Island, or Kitchener Island to the north, where the City Botanic Garden can be found.”
