Historical Site
RobertAn absolute must visit and probably the highlight of my whole Egypt trip. Make sure you go there early to avoid the heat if you’re travelling in summer, and youll be able to take better photos too. Also note that if you want to take photos inside you need to purchase an extra ticket!

Water Conservancy Project
juki235Aswan Dam is a great water conservancy project on the Nile River. It has a history of 60 years since it was built. It cost 1.3 billion US dollars at that time. It was one of the largest water conservancy projects in the world at that time. The entire dam is very majestic, turning the Nile River into a large reservoir, which plays an important role in irrigation and power generation of farmland downstream, similar to our Three Gorges Project.

凹凸曼和小伙伴Boat Tour to the Two Temples of Kang Ombo 📌 Generally speaking, the temples in Egypt only enshrine one god, but Kon Ombo Temple is different. In addition to the crocodile god Sobek, it also enshrines the eagle god Horus. Recommendation index🌟🌟🌟🌟 ⛴Transportation: Boat tour (you can walk to the scenic spot after docking) 🎫Tickets: 50L.E. 🚧Opening hours: 8:00am~16:00pm (but if you are with a group, you can also enter at night) ⌚️Visit time: 1 hour 📌Architectural features: 🔸Kang Ombo Temple is the only double temple in Egypt. It enshrines the eagle god Horus and the crocodile god Sobek. Starting from the gate, Horus and Sobek are on each side. Sobek is on the left and He is on the right. Ruth, and the architectural style is also symmetrical. 🔹The Egyptians believe in the crocodile god, and they usually feed the crocodile and make a crocodile mummified after the crocodile dies. 🔸The frescoes of the Kang Ombo Temple also involve the astronomy, geography, counting and medicine of the ancient Greeks and Romans thousands of years ago. 📝Travel tips: There will be many local people wearing local costumes near the Kang Ombo Temple. They are paid photography models. They will take the initiative to stand in front of you. If you want to shoot humanities, you can tip $1 after the filming. If you don’t want to pay, don’t Hold up your phone or camera to avoid misunderstandings.

凹凸曼和小伙伴The most complete temple of Horus in Egypt (Temple of Edfu) 📌The most complete temple in Egypt 📍Location: 123km north of Aswan, Egypt, 140km south of Luxor Recommendation index🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 ⛴Transportation: Boat tour (you can reach the scenic spots by horse-drawn carriage after docking, 20 minutes by horse-drawn carriage). 🎫Ticket: 60L.E. (2016) 🚧Opening time: 8:00am~16:00pm (night tour is already open, you can also enter at night) ⌚️Visit time: 1.5 hours 📌Architectural features: 🔸The Temple of Horus is the second largest temple in Egypt. It took, ah years, from Ptolemy III to Ptolemy XII (that is, Cleopatra's father) to be completed. Because it has been buried deep in quicksand since it was built, it was well preserved before the French discovered this temple. 🔹Because of the huge scale of the Horus temple complex, the mural reliefs on the walls are very complete and rich, and almost all the images of gods in ancient Greek myths can be seen. 🔸The temple of Horus also used three sets of columns to decorate the same temple at the same time. You can see the papyrus style, palm leaf column and lotus column respectively. 📝Travel tips: 1⃣️The temple of Horus must be explained throughout the whole process, otherwise it will not be digested. 2⃣️Because there are various temples along the way, it may be amazing from the beginning to the later aesthetic fatigue, so it is recommended to take more pictures. After the pictures are saved, they can be used for review after the trip or one day in the future. 3⃣️All buildings must follow the principle of not touching.

Island/Peninsula
AricFongThere are two small piers to go to Koh Chang, one of which is at the entrance of KFC "next to". 5 pounds is already a round-trip ferry fare, so there is no need to pay for returning to the other side [得意] This is a small island in Nubia Where Nubia lives, there are homestays, high-end hotels, coffee shops and scenic spots on the island. A half-day tour is not bad. We’ve been shopping for about half a day, but we can’t find a way to Movenpick Hotel [sad] But everything is fine, come to Aswan and visit Elephant Island. Travel to the 182nd day of marriage, the 11th country, Aswan, Egypt
