Entertainment in Southern Nile Valley

  • Entertainment in Abu Simbel

    Sound & Light Show

    A sound-and-light show is performed nightly at Abu Simbel. Headphones are provided, allowing visitors to listen to the commentary in various languages. While the text is flowery and forgettable, the laser show projected on to the temples is stunning and well worth the detour. Shows are only held with a minimum of 10 spectators; check with the tourist office.

  • Entertainment in Aswan

    Palace of Culture

    Between October and February/March, Aswan’s folkloric dance troupe sporadically performs Nubian tahtib (dance performed with wooden staves) and songs depicting village life at the Palace of Culture. Call ahead to check about performances.
