    Take a look at the Nile river

    Favorite thing: This is one of my «from the bus» pictures. It was shot during my first encounter with the grand and divine Nile river on my way from Hurghada to Luxor. I grew up on two beautiful rivers, Sava and Danube, but the Nile is something else. It is the longest river in the world, with water colors that can’t be described. It is so wide…

    The legend says that the one who drinks water from the Nile river will return to Egypt some day. I took a sip in Cairo and now I only have to wait (-_-)

    The higher the better - The Cruise Ship

    View of a Cruise Ship

    Favorite thing: Most people will be taking the cruise ship from Luxor to Aswan or vice versa.

    If you are those who simple love to sit in front of the windows and admire the Nile River beautiful scenery, you should request for a cabin that's at least 2nd or 3rd floor or 4th floor, if your cruise ship are super deluxe type.

    I stayed at a 3rd floor cabin and i love it! Some of my tour mates were staying at the first floor and they feedback that the water level is at their window. Could be fun if you like it. =P

    Of course if you are those that simple loves to cuddle up and take a nap in your cabin most of the time, then it really doesn't matter which floor.

    Enjoy your river cruise.

    A Tight Squeeze

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Wetook a 3 day cruise down the Nile from Luxor to Aswan.
    One day we went through the Esna Lock, what a tight fit that was!

    Fondest memory: The gap between the wall and the boat a man had to fit between to pull the boat physically through the lock.

    Enjoy a Nile Sunset from the river bank!

    View of the Nile at Sunset

    Favorite thing: I definitely enjoyed taking a sunset stroll down the Nile river bank in Luxor, due to their wonderful sidewalk. It was nice and wide to allow many tourist to stroll past you, and had plenty of seating elsewhere so you could sit and enjoy the sunset!

    Life at the riverside

    Nile

    Favorite thing: Making a boattrip is relaxing and to see the skyline of Luxor from the water is fantastic, but I like also to see the daily life at the riverside. You see playing and waving kids, fishermen, all kinds of transports by boat.
    And if you're not on the boat to see the life near the villages, it's nice to sit on a bench at the Corniche and look at the life in the city.

    Boattrip Nile

    Nile

    Favorite thing: If you're tired of the busy streets or the many antiquities of Luxor, go to the Nile for a boattrip. To be on the water is very peaceful and relaxing. And look how beautiful and green the scenery can be.
