As the others, this temple is so pretty. I think the most enjoyable thing is the amount of tourist is very low compare to other times in egypt. So it is definitely a good time to go and visit the most of everything in Egypt.

This is a good starting point for everyone visiting Aswan. Can be done in group or as a solo traveler (although you have to negotiate hard for the boat ride going to the Island).
