Visiting the colorful houses is a great one! Although you have to pay (around 5 pounds) for every house you wish to visit, I think it's still worth the money if you want to have a glimpse of the Egypt that's quite close to African culture. Very relaxing atmosphere and the people are vibrant. You can have breakfast/lunch at one... More

The Nubian people are very friendly and their houses are very colorful unlike the rest of Egypt. Eventhough this place is like a smaller version of Khan Al Khalili but you can get it cheaper if you use your negotiating skills because the place is quite empty

Its basically a slum with a few houses painted and decorated in a nice way to appeal to tourists. Lots of souvenir shops in the main street. It's an overpriced tourist trap. Some spots close to the river have a nice view of aswan and the surroundings.

You should have a good guide for this one. Have fun and practice your negotiating skills. Hand woven (on a loom) scarves, materials are in abundance), the children are a blessing and delight to talk with. You will be very welcome and safe. Have some coffee if you can, the ingredients will make you crave it again and again. Cardamon,... More
