The River and Islands
===The River and Islands===
* <see name="Elephantine Island: Nubian Villages &amp; Aswan Museum" alt="" address="" directions="" phone="" url="" hours="" price="" lat="" long="" email="" fax="">Nubian villages of Siou and Koti occupy this island. Also home to the famous [[:Wikipedia:Nilometer|Nilometer]]s and the Temples of Sati, Khnum (ancient rams-head god) and Pepinakht-Heqaib. Movenpick resort is on the island. The Aswan Museum (Adult: 25LE, Student 15LE) at the southern end of the island houses items found during escavations excavations on Elephantine Island.
Also, be careful of unsolicited tours from locals, which will result in a request for baksheesh. There is regular boat taxi to Elephantine Island run by the locals for only 2LE for one crossing but they will charge more for tourists.</see>
