Day 3: AswanTake an overnight train to arrive at Aswan. This will help you to travel across the country without losing time in the day. Aswan has a totally different vibe to the rest of the country. Sail the Nile on felucca and go and hang out with the Nubian people on Elephantine Island. You can also take a camel ride to the desert monastery of St. Simeon on the East Bank.
