        Top Descriptions

        Karnak is one of the biggest ancient complex attractions in the world. Though much of the site is in decay, what remains is still captivating. The Great Hypostyle Hall is probably the highlight, with many columns still standing. Wandering around the rest of the complex and wider grounds is also good fun, taking the time to examine as much as possible as any fallen, leaning, or crumbled rock, may well have something to behold. – Sarah

        Top Tips

        There are bathrooms and guides at the entrance, should you be looking for either.
        This may be a popular site with tour groups but it is possible to stray from the main path and feel as though you are discovering your own ancient relics.
        There is a bit of a walk from the car park to the entrance, and around the site itself, so do consider bringing hats and plenty of water, especially in the summer heat.
        The sound and light show that is put on in the evenings runs at different times for English, German and French. These times alternate daily, so do check before you come.

                Top Descriptions

                The grandeur of Deir el Bahari is perhaps best appreciated from afar. Built as if to form the base of the cliff, the main temple complex here stands square and strong. As you approach, you can almost imagine the royal dead climbing the enormous staircase which allows access to the upper levels. There are a good variety of statues and preserved paintings and hieroglyphics to get an idea of how the Egyptian saw fit to honour their dead. – Sarah

                Top Tips

                If you are happy to pay inflated prices, there is a café just outside the ruins which may be a place to enjoy a cold ice cream or energising coffee.
                There is a shuttle bus/tram that takes visitors from the car park to the temple complex. However, you may want to savour the site for a little longer and approach on foot.
                One or two of the better paintings here have been covered by cloth. Expect to either pay a tip to a lingering “guard” to show them to you, or be prepared to have a quick peak when said guard is targeting another tourist.

                        Top Descriptions

                        There is a beauty in the Dendera Temple not found elsewhere in , perhaps in all of . It may not have some of the big statuary, but inside is extraordinary. Comparative to other ruins, this temple still feels very whole. The ceiling of the main entry hall is covered with colourful, mythical and monstrous depictions. In fact, there is little inside this temple that has worn bare, with each room, column, wall, stairway and chamber, offering artistry to inspect and enjoy. Moreover, you are able to climb to the rooftop and take in the great view across the expanse of desert that abruptly turns to green. – Sarah

                        Top Tips

                        For a small tip a local gentleman may show you to a stairway which leads below the temple to a decorative under room.
                        There are a couple of ruins outside that are still worth exploring, so perhaps do this before entering (and being consumed by) the main temple.
                        Do not underestimate how long you may want to be here. The condition of this complex is excellent, and it is possible you may want to linger that little bit longer.

                                This is one of the less visited and therefore more tranquil sites for exploration.

Colour still crops many of the columns, one of the biggest sculptures found of Ramses lies on its side here, and hieroglyphics are plentiful. – Sarah

                                        Luxor Temple can easily lure one into wonderful past. The avenue of human headed sphinx offer some well preserved relics, but it is the two, seated, Ramessess which remain at the entrance of the temple that instantly instil a sense of awe and anticipation. Though crumbled in places, the inside does have enough to capture most visitors’ imaginations and admiration; columns, statues and hieroglyphs. It may be smaller than nearby , but it is arguably no less impressive. – Sarah

                                                These majestic statues in the West Bank are thought to be some 3,400 years old. Though little else surrounds them, the lack of ruins here simply accentuates the towering height of these pieces. Well worth a stop. – Sarah

                                                      This is a small but well organised museum with atmospheric lighting and wonderful air conditioning. There are some very well preserved mummies to view, along with decorated coffins. There are numerous striking statues, carved from various stone, and in excellent condition. – Sarah

                                                      Top Tips

                                                      People have reported erratic opening hours, perhaps ask your hotel or a local if you are unsure.
                                                      Though the café and shop were no longer open at the time of writing, there are toilets should you need them.
                                                      If you do not want to pay the camera fee, you may get away with a few sneaky shots providing you don’t use a flash. Then again, there are guards in corners to ensure you follow the rules.

                                                              To experience this legendary river in conjunction with so many wonderful ancient ruins is a stirring and rewarding experience for most, making a recommended location to visit the Nile. However, due to a decrease in tourism, if you are not yourself part of a tour group you may find the attention on the ground a little overwhelming. The banks on either side of the river are densely lined with cruise liners from a seemingly passed touristic time, and donkey-drawn carts and rag-dressed locals are a common sight. This could be seen as charmingly authentic or just a little tragic. – Sarah

                                                              Top Tips

                                                              The cheapest way to sail on the Nile is probably to take the public ferry which runs back and forth from the West and East banks here. These ferries start early and run quite late.
                                                              Fishing trips and sunset tours are on offer here, should you wish to enjoy the river that way. It’s recommended to take the time to view the river at different points of the day as its colours change, along with the activities of the locals using it.
                                                              If you are feeling hungry, you can watch the happenings of the Nile from , whilst enjoying some of the best local food on offer in Luxor!
