Top Descriptions

As the political situation currently stands, Luxor is not particularly popular – probably because isn’t particularly safe or popular itself at the moment. But much like other sites in the country, there are so many simply amazing antiquities on offer in Luxor that this city is bound to have its heyday many times over. But as Luxor feeds pretty much solely on tourism, it is certainly struggling with the low influx of visitors at the moment. Such low numbers has only increased the hassle and expense for the few backpackers that do trickle through, and further encourages the tour-bus tourists to wander away from their vehicle as little as possible. This situation in combination with the frankly poor dining scene and obvious poverty means that you might want to consider lingering for only as long as you have to, although you should still make sure to put your money in the hands of the locals wherever possible. – Daniel
 
Luxor illuminates Egypt’s ancient past perhaps better than any other location in the country. Once the ancient city of Thebes, Luxor town contains two captivating sites which have enough towering relics and preserved hieroglyphics to make most feel a little bit like Indiana Jones. Not to mention this town sits on the famous . In the surrounding area there is also the enchanting and much less visited Temple of , as well as the numerous other tombs and mortuaries in the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens. However, despite years of tourism, Luxor town has been rather neglected. Step back from the exorbitant hotels and (mostly closed) souvenir shops along the East bank river front and you are quickly confronted with basic amenities and fairly low living standards. This is even more true of the west bank, where desperate boatman may well follow you back to your hotel in the hope of you taking their service. It is, sadly, a bit off putting. Big tour groups drive through in big busses from other locations and put their money into the hands of out-of-town, or even out-of-country, tour companies. – Sarah

Top Tips

Consider staying on the west bank of the . There’s more accommodation over the river, a few passable riverside dining options such as , and generally less hassle. There are frequent and cheap ferry boats connecting both sides.
Do not miss out on visiting the in the Valley of the Kings on the west bank. There are many other antiquities dotted around here too, such as the or the .
An excellent trip out of town would be to . You’ll have to hire a driver, and they should check for you whether the quick desert road is open or safe.
Don’t let the horse-and-cart drivers hassle you too much. They can get just a little aggressive, so just be firm back if you want to walk. Saying that, they are desperate for business and do make for a good way of getting about. The boatman can also be quite persistant, to the point of following you back to your accommodation and then waiting until you surface again.

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.

Top Descriptions

This is one of the less visited and therefore more tranquil sites for exploration. Though it may not feature many restored/preserved pieces such as the , it is still noteworthy. 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

Top Tips

The sun is unforgiving in the summer and there are no amenities here, so bring hats and plenty of water.
As with most sites in , the guides can be a little persistent. If you start to get followed, perhaps do a loop or two around the columns to lose any overly zealous helpers.

Top Descriptions

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

Top Tips

There are bathrooms and guides at the entrance, should you be looking for either.
This site doesn’t offer too much shade, so consider carefully what time of day you decide to wander around as it can be incredibly hot.
If you want to take a boat over to the West Bank, walk around the outside of the temple wall until you meet the main road running parallel with the . The dock is on the opposite side of the street a few meters to the right and down some steps.

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
