In this episode we explore the Upper Nile in Egypt, a land of ancient temples that go back more than 5,000 years. The awe-inspiring collection of ruins and monuments in and around the towns of Luxor and Aswan, have made this region a favorite destination of tourists since the 19th Century. Described as one of the world's greatest open air museums overlooking the Nile, the whole town is geared towards the thousands of visitors, who come here each year.

A relaxing trip across the waters of the Nile brings the boats to the ancient temple complexes and modern facilities, offers the full range of health and fitness practices.
