Best Times to Visit Aswan

Aswan is the sunniest southern city in Egypt and it is known for its distinctively African atmosphere. Although it is a small city it is graced with an incredibly beautiful setting on the Nile. Some say that you haven’t seen the great Egyptian Nile until you’ve gone to Aswan because of the fact that although it doesn’t have the number of great ancient monuments located in Luxor, it does still have some of the most picturesque ancient & modern monuments making it among the list of the top-visited cities in Egypt. Even along the banks of the city, you will find really friendly people who welcome visitors from all around the world warmly to the colorful tapestry of history, tradition, and culture. In Aswan, you will enjoy the most from the amazing beauty of the Nubian culture to the bewitching relics of ancient Egypt.
