Best Places To Stay In Aswen
Further south, the Nile becomes increasingly picturesque around the cataracts south of Aswan, with vast, smooth 'pink' granite boulders... which really do glow in the setting sun. The river is narrower here, dotted with islands and inlets, and fringed with foliage and palms. Aswan is quiet and peaceful, out of the way of the main tourist route, and feels utterly timeless, connected by a breath of sand to ancient civilisation. This is a lovely place for a few quiet days soaking up the atmosphere.
