Plan an Aswan holiday and treat yourself to ancient wonders of the past along the Nile River.
Step out of Aswan to go to Kom Ombo and see Temple of Kom Ombo, which is approximately 1h 5 min away. There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Philae Temple, examine the collection at Animalia, delve into the distant past at Unfinished Obelisk, and step off the mainland to explore Agilkia Island.

To find traveler tips, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, use the Aswan travel route builder site.

Marrakech, Morocco to Aswan is an approximately 13.5-hour combination of train and flight. You can also fly. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2 hours traveling from Marrakech to Aswan.

More than 20 million people call Cairo their home and, as soon as you set foot in the sprawling metropolis, it's evident they make it crowded and chaotic, but also exuberant and charming.
Kids will enjoy The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities and Photography Tours. Get out of town with these interesting Cairo side-trips: Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids (in Saqqara) and Giza (Great Sphinx & Pyramids of Giza). There's lots more to do: get a taste of the local shopping with Khan Al-Khalili, take an exotic tour of a safari tour, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary), and walk around Al-Azhar Park.
