I'll start with the Nile river. The long river is a sight in itself. When I chose the place I'm going to stay at, I really chose one facing the Nile river so I could have a view the whole time I'm inside the room.

The Nile river is considered the longest river in the world running in 9 countries in Africa. It is 6,650 km long and ends in a large delta that empties into the Mediterranean Sea.

In Aswan, most of the historical sites - monuments and temples - are located along the Nile. Egyptians depended on the river ever since the ancient times, reason why most settlements are located near or along the river.

There are lots of feluccas and motor boats plying tourists along the Nile river, and so are the huge cruises that run between Aswan and Luxor.
