Today is free for you to explore Aswan, or the surrounding area, at your familys preferred pace. You might want to visit the magnificent temples of Abu Simbel, located near the Sudan border. These two temples one for Ramses II and another he dedicated to his wife Queen Nefertari were cut into the cliff face in the 13th century and remain impressive in their scope and detail.
If you would prefer to stay in Aswan and get a taste of contemporary Egypt there is plenty to do. The relaxed atmosphere makes Aswan a great city to wander and watch the boats cruise the Nile, plus theres always the hotel pool nearby where you and the kids can cool off. This evening we head to the bazaar to wander around before a group dinner.
