Abu Simbel, Egypt

Abu Simbel is a charming, compact town—it's navigable by foot and makes an easy daytrip from Aswan. However, the town's main attractions, the Temple of Ramses II and Nefertari's Temple of Hathor, were almost lost to the rising waters of Lake Nasser in the 1960s. Fortunately, UNESCO stepped in and saved them, preserving the intricate carvings inside both structures. After exploring the temple interiors, take in stunning views over the lake and desert. (Editor's note: Our list was compiled before political unrest prompted many countries to issue travel warnings for Egypt. If you're currently planning a trip to Egypt, please consider the risks and monitor your government's travel alerts.)
