Some plants that I have never seen before here! It is amazing how they put them all together. After spending some time in Egypt you will find this island refreshing in its greenery and lushness.

This is a very special place with various rare plants and trees. The boat ride to the place is also part of the adventure.

The docking at stone steps make one feels you are like the Ancient Egyptians who owned a house on the Nile. It is a vast and peaceful garden with plenty of trees which originate from the four corners of the world. On the west side, one can get a splendid view of the beginning of the Sahara.

If you arr interested in plants then you will like it! But if you seek ancient Egyptian monuments in Aswan then you will find it normal. The best thing in it for me was its amazing location on an island above the Nile river.

Would have seemed more suitable for me during school, nevertheless, it's an OK stretch of the legs. I wouldn't consider it a scenic place as the trees and plants seems fine but not "An Attraction" in my humble opinion. Was OK overall.
