Aswan, Egypt’s 3rd largest city and the largest in Upper Egypt, is situated at the foot of the Nile Valley to the North end of Lake Nasser. It is a major mining spot for aluminum and iron; it's also a favorite place for tourists to visit due to it being a major stop for cruise boats, for the River Nile as well as Lake Nasser. It has a local market that is an excellent place to do your holiday shopping; this is especially true if you want spices as you will find the best types of fresh spices here.
