The Future Village of Abu Simbel was designed to house a large population but the current populations complains about the poor build quality of the housing and the unreliability of water and electricity.

Abu Simbel is a one of the southern most villages in Egypt. It is most famous for its remains from Ancient Egypt, but it also draws Egyptians from across the country to work and make their dreams in its farms and jobs.
