hotels, water sports, shopping and entertainment. This
is Sharm el-Sheikh,
one of the most accessible and developed tourist resort
communities on the Sinai peninsula. All around are Bedouins,
colorful tents, mountains and sea. There are small,
intimate hotels with modern designs, as well as larger
hotel complexes belonging to International chains, plus

miles south the southern section of the town stands on a
cliff overlooking the port. and is a great view.
Na'ama Beach is one of the center of the tourist activities.
Located just north of Sharm, this area is developing into
a resort town of its own. Most hotels at Na'ama Bay have
their own, private beaches with comfortable amenities such
as chairs, shades and even bars.
Shark's Bay is also nearby, and again is a growing resort
community with more and more to offer, along with several
The small harbor known as Sharm el-Moiya is located next
to the civil harbor, has accommodations for boats, and includes
a Yacht Club with rooms.
For those who live to shop, the Sharm
el-Sheikh mall provides shops with both foreign and
local products, including jewelry, leather goods, clothing,
pottery and books.
It has been said that this is a must visit for all diving
enthusiasts. There are many diving sites along the 10 mile
beach between Sharm el-Sheikh
and Ras Nusrani.
Egypt's sunniest southern city and ancient frontier town located
about 81 miles south of Luxor,
has a distinctively African atmosphere. Its ancient Egyptian
name was Syene. Small enough to walk around and graced with
the most beautiful setting on the Nile, the pace of life is
slow and relaxing. Days can be spent strolling up and down
the broad Corniche watching the sailboats etch the sky with
their tall masts or sitting in floating restaurants listening
to Nubian music and eating freshly caught fish.
In Aswan the Nile is at
its most beautiful, flowing through amber desert and granite
rocks, round emerald islands covered in palm groves and tropical
plants. Explore the souk, full of the scent and color of spices,
perfumes, scarves and baskets. View the spectacular sunsets
while having tea on the terrace of the Old Cataract Hotel
(Named due to the location of the Nile's first cataract located
here). Aswan has been a
favorite winter resort since the beginning of the nineteenth
century, and it's still a perfect place to get away from it
Every night Nubian dancers and musicians perform in the Cultural
Center, just off the Corniche. Folklore troupes recreate scenes
from village life and perform the famous Nubian mock stick-fight

is a strategic location which currently houses a garrison
of the Egyptian army, but which has also seen ancient Egyptian
garrisons, as well as that of General Kitchener, Turkish troops
of the Ottoman empire and the Romans.
The city proper lies on the east bank of the Nile. Relax here,
visit a few mosques, but then prepare for an adventure. The
bazaar runs along the Corniche, which continues past the Ferial
Gardens and the Nubian Museum, and continues on to the Cemetery,
with its forest of cupolas surmounted tombs from the Fatimid
period. Just east of the cemetery in the famous area quarries
is the gigantic Unfinished Obelisk. Just to the south of this,
two Graeco-Roman sarcophagi and an unfinished colossus remain
half buried in the sand.
The most obvious is Elephantine Island, which is timeless
with artifacts dating from pre-Dynastic times onward. It is
the largest island in the area. Just beyond Elephantine is
Kitchener's Island (Geziret el-Nabatat). It was named for
the British general Haratio Kitchener (185--1916) and was
sent to Egypt in 1883 to reorganize the Egyptian army, which
he then led against the Sudanese Mahdi. But the island is
known for its garden and the exotic plants the Kitchener planted
there, and which continue to flourish today.
On the opposite shore (west bank), the cliffs are surmounted
by the tomb of a marabut, Qubbet el-Hawwa, who was a local
saint. Below are tombs of the local (pharaonic) nobles and
Upriver a bit is the tomb of Mohammed Shah Aga Khan who died
in 1957. Known as the Tomb of the Aga Khan, it is beautiful
in its simplicity. A road from there leads back to the Coptic
Monastery of St Simeon, which was built in the sixth century
in honor of Amba Hadra, a local saint.
Just up river a bit, there is also the old Aswan
dam, built by the British, which was enlarged, expanded, but
unable to control the Nile for irrigation.

This was a rain-dependent agricultural land in the Roman
era. Having good faith in the prosperous future of this
region, the government spares no effort to develop it. Many
comprehensive planning studies have been conducted. Many
luxurious tourist spots have been built. In 1978, the process
In spite of miles of white sand beaches and azure sea, Egypt's
Med is still undeveloped and relatively unpopulated. There
are fine beaches all along the coast from Alexandria
to Mersa Matrouh, including the resort of Sidi Abdel Rahman,
a secluded bay with clear waters and a selection of villas
and hotels. At Mersa Matrouh itself, the natural bay and
long white beach make for good sunbathing and swimming in
calm transparent waters. Hired bicycles, carettas or open-
sided tuf-tuf buses will take you to other good bathing
spots nearby including the outstar beach at Al-Abyad and
Ageebah cove, surrounded by beautiful scenery. As well as
beaches there are other attractions in the Mersa Matrouh
area : Cleopatra's Bath, a rock-hewn whirlpool bath off-
shore which was supposedly used by Antony and Cleopatra,
a ruined temple fort built by Ramses II, an early Coptic
chapel and "Rommel's Hideout", a cave where the
general planned his military campaigns and which has now
been tumed into a military museum.
