Temple of Abu Simbel Travel Guide: 266 reviews and 921 photos

Abu Simbel is an amazing place and definitely worth visiting if you get the chance! It's about a 3 hour drive from Aswan... The bus ride we took from Aswan to Abu Simbel was fine though, we just slept most of the way since it was quite early in the morning...we may have even slept most of the way back to Aswan too...hehe...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:It's HUGE...and amazing...and very interesting...
  • Cons:It's HOT...and quite crowded inside the temples
  • In a nutshell:As with all of Egypt...definitely worth visiting if you can!

    Egypt is one of our "wish-list" destinations. Reading your tips and looking at your beautiful pictures makes it even a huger wish! Thanx for sharing.
