Aswan is located in the south of Egypt, some 680 km (425 miles) south of Cairo, just below the Aswan Dam and Lake Nasser. Compared to Cairo and Luxor, Aswan is a far more relaxed, if smaller, alternative as a traveller's destination.
What People Are Saying
Stefan from Amsterdam, Netherlands loves to see the hotels and prices on a map
I love to see the available hotels on the map. I move and zoom the map a lot. It's so easy to filter
out the hotels that are too far from my preferred location. I also like seeing the hotel prices at a
glance on the map markers.
This hotel booking tool has saved me both a lot of time and money.
Anna from St. Petersburg, Russia thinks the budget tools and prices are great
Thanks for a cool new way of booking hotels! On our family trips, we are used to filter the hotels
based on our budget. Now we can quickly see the hotels that offer the best deals and that are
conveniently located close by the most interesting sights.
The prices on TripSay are always great.
Juan from Barcelona, Spain recommends this site to travelers who know what they want
I found a hotel quickly using the advanced filters. Booking the hotel was easy and straight-forward.
I require a wi-fi, non-smoking room and location near the airport or main railway station. Finally
it's easy to find a hotel that suits me. I recommend this tool to other travelers as well.
The Dam of Aswan is quite big to be honest. Especially after all the surrounding drought the dam seems to be huge. There's also nice view to the river on both sides. The quide on our trip told us that the Dam of Aswan was built with money coming from Russia. So this is why there is a big monument dedicated to Russians.
There is a place where they make obelisks in Aswan. It's truly amazing how it's impossible to carve such a big and long block out of boulder.. and on top of that, to lift it and move it to a place where to set it up. Incredible.
