Holidays in Luxor
Luxor is situated on the east bank of the Nile which is the longest river in Egypt and offers visitors a chance to see ancient Egypt at its best. The Temples of Luxor and of Karnak are within the town itself but you’ll need to take a trip to see the Tombs of the Nobles, the Valley of the Kings, and the Valley of the Queens as these lay on the west bank. Modern day Luxor is all about tourism and the town is cram packed with souvenir shops, hotels and restaurants and a thousand and one (well it seems like that) so called tourist guides all offering their services and local knowledge. A polite no thank you works well.
The streets are busy with all forms of transport from taxis to horse-drawn carriages (called caleches) and the Nile is busy with feluccas and luxury hotel ships. Luxor is ideal for those that want to spend a week on a Nile river cruise and/or a week in one of the top hotels in this fascinating resort. If a cheap holiday in Luxor, Egypt is what you’re looking for, then start saving money now and book all inclusive.
Stop dreaming and Go-there.
