Aswan, in southern Egypt, stands on the east bank of the Nile. It is one of the driest inhabited areas in the world and is home to approximately 200,000 people.

Aswan is a popular Egyptian winter resort; the summer months of May-October are hot with highs of 41C; the winter months of November-April are mild with temperatures dipping to 10C.

Once a military station, even today, due to its strategic location, it houses a garrison of the Egyptian army.
The majority of the population is of Numidian origin and sustains their livelihood through agricultural and tourism.

Overall Guide : Aswan is home to many ancient temples such as the Philae Temple dedicated to Isis and the Kalabsha Temple of the Nubian God Menolis.   Aswan also has several museums: the Aswan Museum on the Aswan dam, the open air... more Sculptures Museum of  Art at Shalal and the Nubian Museum, a tribute to Nubian heritage. The city has many historical sites: The Elephantine Island from the time of the Pharaohs, the Unfinished Obelisk, a leftover piece of ancient Egyptian construction, the revered Nobles' Tombs of Mekho, Sapti, Khons and Harkhok, the Coptic Anba Samaan Monastery,the most important Christian antiquity in Egypt, and so on. Every night Nubian dancers and musicians perform in the CulturalCenter. The Miracle of the sun festival at Abu Simbel celebrates King Ramses II and the Nubian culture, it is held twice a year. When here, don’t miss the local market at the Old town souk or a ride on the local boats, the white felucca on the Nile.
