please do not leave Abu Simbel without doing this amazing sound and light show which is the best I've see and heard,
don't be put off by the fact it may not be in your language as they give you a head-set for your given language,if you have your own headphones though,take and use them instead.
The transformation is nothing short of mind-blowing,if you think these temples look amazing by day then you've got to see them at night,from the sound-track, to the imagery,to the illumination,to the atmosphere out-side under the stars,wow!wow!wow!
bring a good camera if you have one as my phone camera didn't do it justice.
i must say the Egyptians sure know how to do things and do them well
if your buying souvenirs, Abu Simbol stall holders just beside the temples have the cheapest in Egypt,i learned that the hard way,so don't make the same mistake i made......
