My favourite place in Egypt would have to be Aswan. It's romantic and there is so much to see and do. Here you'll find the Nile a beautiful blue. Take a felucca ride at sunset and soak in this wonderful paradise. Visit the botanical gardens and have a picnic. For the archaelogist in you there is Philae Temple and Elephantine Island which the Romans named because of a rock shaped in the form of, you guessed it, an elephant. There is also a museum on Elephantine Island. See the engineering marvel that is the Aswan Dam. If you enjoy different cultures visit the Nubian village and see how they live and if you like you can hold a baby croc in your hand. We only stayed in Aswan for a day and a half but if we ever get to go back there we'll stay a lot longer. Entrance fee to the Botanical Gardens is 10LE per person. Entrance fee to the museum is 30LE per person and the fee to visit the Aswan Dam is 20LE per person.
