Plan an Aswan holiday and treat yourself to ancient wonders of the past along the Nile River. Egypt's southernmost major tourist city along the ancient southern frontier offers a slow-paced feel with plenty of opportunity for short strolls along the corniche--a cliffside road--with the chance to watch sailboats glide by.
