Visit Luxor


Luxor marks the end point for Nile cruises from Aswan and so travellers often arrive in the city by ship. And what could be a better way to reach Luxor than drifting gently down the great waterway on a felucca. What awaits is a buzzing tourist hub built on the site of the city of Thebes, where the ancient stands side-by-side with the modern like very few places on earth.

Colossal temples and the tombs of pharaohs are Luxor's major tourist attractions and these have made this city of 150,000 people the foremost travel destination in Upper Egypt. Luxor Temple is a good starting point, a relatively compact complex began by the 18th-Dynasty pharaoh, Amenhotep III and extended by later rulers including Tutankhamun.
