Abu Simbel is wonderful on its own, but it's even nicer to see during the Abu Simbel festival. The website attached explains this festival. We were the first people in line to see it. If you plan to go, stay at a nearby hotel. The nearest hotel is The Nefertari Hotel. You can walk to the monument. Next to the temple for Ramses is the temple for Nefertari. There is a beautiful view of Lake Nasser opposite the temples.
