If you get a chance sail to Abu Simbel across Lake Nassar. It is truly inspiring, truly took my breath away. The temple was moved when the lake was created and the engineers of today never managed to achieve what the ancient egyptians did - make the sun shine on the internal statues on the right days. We also stayed for the light and sound show which while a little corny is well worth the visit.

I have been once at the Abu Simble in Egypt and I have to note that once I have stood in front of it - I could not breath for a moment. The
Monument is so big more then you can imagen and tells the history of
old Egypt. It is a MUST to all visitor in the country!!!

Abu Simbel is an amazing architectural wonder. I highly recommend taking the very earliest morning flight. to get there You will then arrive before it becomes too hot and also before most of the tourists arrive. Be sure to visit the area that shows the painstaking process of actually moving the monument piece by peace. A beautiful area from the air
