"By Bus from Aswan (+see the stars as never before)" Temple of Abu Simbel Transportation Tip by Lorenzo1971

Temple of Abu Simbel Transportation: 22 reviews and 26 photos

We went to Abu Simble by bus from Aswan.
To find a bus, is not a problem: anyone is Aswan seems to know someone who organizes daily tours. There are many large coaches as well as a good number of minibuses. We got a minibus for £E45 each (remember to haggle!!!): this included a trip to Philae and the high dam on the way back.
Coaches and minibuses travel in a convoy leaving at 4.30am so you'll have to get up early. If you can stay awake in the bus you will see 2 amazing spectacles:
-Stars: if you live in a large town and you can count the stars in the sky you will be amazed by the sheer number and brilliance of the stars in the desert
- Dawn: absolutely beautiful

Mode: TO
Type: Bus
