Felucca

Feluccas are traditional canvas-sailed boats of the Nile. As said before, the Nile is at its most picturesque in Aswan, and everybody is recommended to take a felucca to enjoy the scenery. Some people even uses the felucca to travel from Aswan to Luxor or Edfu, which may lasts from 2 or 3 days.

We took the felucca to crossed the Nile from Elephantine Island to Aswan East Bank. Initially we thought of take the felucca to travel around Kitchener's Island first, but called it off after unable to get our price despite bargained hard. Ended up we paid about EGP 10 for the felucca to sailed just 2 of us to East Bank. However, the felucca sailed slowly, enabled us to enjoy the scenic view.


The sailor controlled to sail of felucca so that felucca wouldn't sail too fast.
