Favorite thing: My favourite thing about the visit to Abu Simbel was those 4 huge statues of Ramses at the front of the Great Temple of Ramses II.

Only 3 of the 4 statues still sit proudly looking out to Lake Nasser - the 4th statue collapsed, and you can see it lying in the sand from where it fell (well, recreated when the temple was moved in the 1960's).

Fondest memory: I found that these magnificent 20 metre high statues were especially good subjects for many a photo!

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
