Abu Simbel Vacations
It's recommended not to limit your tour to the attractions of Abu Simbel because the surrounding region is laced with an abundance of wonderful cities, attractions and landscapes.
Whatever your beliefs, visitors are sure to be moved in Egypt's mosques and other places of worship. Egypt is a wonderful vacation destination for travelers with a passion for open-air museums, gardens and lighthouses.
Why not challenge yourself with a a high-altitude adventure while you are here. Go parasailing; you'll never forget it. Delve into a side of this incredible region many visitors will never see by spending time with a local guide on one of the wildlife spotting tours and city walking tours.
Food is an integral element of any place and a wonderful way to get to know somewhere. Among the variety of ingredients often used in this part of the world are fava beans and rice. Follow the lead of the locals and order lamb kofta or mezze. Egypt dishes such as umm ali (raisin cake in milk) are also great to try. For those who like to relax with a quality brew, have a taste of Luxor. It's a popular choice in Egypt. After your meal, consider going out for a nice glass of wine in a bar that serves regional wines. Get a bottle of Rubis D’Egypte rosé or Chateau des Reves red. Enjoy one of the most common drinks in the Egypt area; coffee.
When it's time to say farewell to Abu Simbel, head to the nearest major airport located in Abu Simbel, 2 miles (3 kilometers) to the northwest.
