Aswan is a city in the south of Egypt and the capital of Aswan Governorate. It is a busy market town and tourist centre located north of Aswan Dams on the east bank of the Nile. Small enough to walk and graced with the magnificent surroundings of the Nile, Aswan life is slow and relaxing.
In Aswan, Nile is the most beautiful, flowing through amber deserts and granite rocks, round islands covered with palm groves and tropical plants. It is the hottest and driest inhabited city in the world, but it has the most spectacular sunsets in the world.
What to visit in Aswan
The place is a favourite winter resort since the nineteenth century, and it’s still one of the best places to visit. Aswan is home to many important archaeological sites like the Philae temple complex, the columned Temple of Isis and the Temple of Khnum, from the Third Dynasty.
Public transportation in Aswan
Aswan is very compact, and you can do sightseeing on foot, although buses, rental cars, coaches, trains, taxis, boats and ferries are available too. The train station is on the northern end of the city centre, so leave plenty of time to buy a ticket, because the service at the counters is slow.
Aswan bus station is 3.5 km north of the train station, and it offers buses to Cairo, the Red Sea, Luxor, Abu Simbel and Sudan. A taxi excursion or a horse-drawn carriage tour is highly recommended.

Aswan International Airport is 16 km southwest of Aswan, Egypt.
