An article in al-youm al-saba3 newspaper reports about a possible Porto Aswan opening up in Aswan! If anyone is familiar with the other Porto disasters in Ayn Sokhna and the North Coast, they will quickly realize that this would signal a complete destruction of Aswan's natural and archaeological heritage.
This is a photo showing Porto Ayn Sokna. Not only is it disgusting piece of architecture, it also completely covers the mountains behind it. It seems to have actually been built for that purpose - to hide the surrounding landscape. People who go to this resort will therefore see nothing but this ugly building which could not be more out of harmony with the place. So I'm assuming the same investor wishes to commit the same crime in Aswan. If this happens, this is going to be a really sad day not only for the residents of Aswan who have seen their beautiful landscape massacred over the years by greedy investors, but also for anyone who has been to Aswan and appreciates the calm beauty and the rich historical heritage of this ancient city.
