Aswan Travel

"Aswan is Egypt's largest southern settlement, an oasis north of the Sudanese border. The town is alive with the memory of French and British colonialism, and the ghosts of Napoleon, Kitchener, Winston Churchill and various princesses of Wales. Elephantine Island – a resort island dotted with hotels, the Aswan museum and villages – is an archeology-lover's paradise that transports the visitor to ancient Egypt". A portrait of Aswan and what it offers today's visitors - more about the variety of experiences and services available than the archaeology, but it may be of interest to potential visitors.
