Most tourist travel to Luxor after exploring the Great Pyramids of Giza or Cairo, the vibrant metropolis. Even some travelers come here after the nearby Hurghada and Aswan cities. In either case, you can learn about Egypt offering several reasonably priced public transportation choices to reach Luxor.
Primarily most tourists prefer a night train to reach Luxor, which typically travels directly from Cairo or Giza to Aswan and stops at Luxor along the way. Also, there are nightly bus routes from Cairo to Luxor, and bus travel is a secure method to navigate across Egypt. You may also opt for Egypt’s domestic flights. A one-hour trip from Cairo to Luxor is available, which will cost depending on the season and how far in advance you book. Furthermore, you'll likely begin or conclude your voyage at Luxor if you're taking a cruise down the Nile. You will also get several transportation options to abound the Luxor, including renting a car, traditional horse and carriage, Felucca, or walking around Luxor.
The best way to begin the sightseeing is to enjoy the spectacular city of Luxor with a Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Ride. The east and west banks of the Nile River divide Luxor, the ancient Egyptian nation's center of religion. As seen by buildings like the Karnak Temple, partially devoted to the sun deity Amun-Re, the east bank (sunrise) represents life and renewal. The west bank (sunset) described death, and elaborate rock-cut tombs were built as places for people to be buried before making the trip to the afterlife.
Before daybreak, take a hot air balloon flight to see the east and west banks in all their splendor before you even get to Luxor. It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the morning light illuminate the luscious sugarcane fields shrouded in fog while taking in the various temples below.
The first fantastic place is Karnak Temple on the east bank, which is highly occupied throughout the day until its closing. Therefore, it is best to arrive in time for the opening at approximately 6 AM. This kind of exploration will not only be a lot more enjoyable, but it will also be more relaxed and much less crowded for photography. Karnak is a GIANT temple, an outdoor museum, and resembles a little fortress. So, if possible, give yourself at least two hours to explore.
Even though most visitors only recognize the enormous columns, there is much more to see, including the ram path, twin obelisks, the lake, Amun-Ra temples, and many statues. Each of the 134 columns is 97 feet tall and 323 tonnes in weight. Don't forget to circle the scarab six times counterclockwise for good luck. Besides all the bustle, taking a break to sit here with a drink and ice cream can be exquisite. There are cafés within this temple near the lake.
After this, visiting the Luxor temple is the best, but it is also extremely crowded, even more than the Karnak temple. If you're staying close to the Nile, you may stroll from Luxor City to the Luxor Temple because of its centrally located. It will take you more than five minutes to walk from where your Nile cruise ship will likely dock to the temple. It took 10 minutes to walk there from the Winter Palace.
The Luxor Temple was built in 1400 BC and is dedicated to Amon, Mut and Khons, Amon's spouse. A Roman-era mural and an antique mosque from the 13th century called the "Abu Haggag" mosque are nearby. It will probably take you an hour to view everything here. There are several eateries close to the Luxor Temple where you may have lunch. You must not miss Felucca’s ride on the Nile River to Banana Island. You can head over to Banana Island riding on a felucca. A banana farm, a crocodile "zoo," and fresh sugar cane juice are all available here.
Furthermore, you can explore the west bank beginning with the Valley of the Kings. It has been well-known ever since Howard Carter found the tomb of King Tutankhamun in 1922, which led to the (alleged) Curse of King Tut. Each year, many visitors travel here to see the famous Pharaohs' tombs that have been found. Except for King Tutankhamun's bedroom, these rooms don't contain any bodies, which may make them appear gruesome.
Next move on to the temple of Hatshepsut. Hatshepsut was an all-around tough woman and the longest-reigning female pharaoh in Egyptian history. "The lady who was king," so-called. She ruled for twenty years, and because a female pharaoh was unheard of, sculptures of her were made to seem like men.
While alive, she even sported a king's crown and attire. Her enduring legacy is the funerary temple, whose construction began in 1479 BC. Her bones were discovered in 1891, and in 1922, experts were finally able to identify them. The original three floors from the 1990s have mostly been recreated today by the Polish Academy of Science. Even though a large portion of the old temple was saved. The symmetry and astronomical placement of the structure make it one of the finest architectural achievements of ancient Egypt.
Visit of Madinat Habu, a gem in Luxor, follows next. It is among the most well-preserved temples in Luxor concerning colorful paints. Ramses III's funerary temple is called Madinat Habu. This temple is intended to honor his life accomplishments, as opposed to his tomb at the Valley of the Kings, which served to commemorate his entry into the afterlife.
Other top attractions on the west bank of Luxor include Colossi of Memnon, Howard Carter’s house, The Valley of the Queens, Luxor Museum, and The Valley of workers.
Of course, Luxor has a plethora of stores. All have intriguing local Egyptian ornaments to purchase. Besides the usual tourist trinkets like Tutankhamun magnets and Anubis keychains. High-end products include 18-karat gold, alabaster, fragrances, papyrus scrolls, carpets, and spices.
