Why Luxor

Luxor has been described as ‘the world’s greatest open air museum’. It has a wealth of antiquities - from those within Luxor itself through to ancient sites, such as the Valley of the Kings, that are further out. Luxor actually consists of three locations – the City of Luxor on the east the Nile, the town of Karnak just north of Luxor and Thebes, which is on the west side of the Nile across from Luxor. All three are worth visiting for their history. Its history dates back to when Thebes was the capital city of the New Kingdom. It was renowned as city for its arts, wisdom and religion. This continued through both the Greek and the Roman empires. Today it is a curious mixture of ancient and modern. Many relatively modern buildings reflect the enthusiasm for ancient Egypt that took off when Howard Carter found the tomb of Tutankhamun. Remnants of its British colonial past can also still be seen.

Luxor Attractions

Luxor caters for all types of holiday makers. Those wanting to visit ancient sites can do so easily. Whilst those wanting to shop and relax can visit the many bazaars and souks for items that describe the history – in particular, the local alabaster and clay pots. Trips across the Nile are also popular. These are typically separate excursions but can be part of your journey to sites such as the Valley of the Kings if you prefer. Luxor prides itself on what it can offer holiday makers. There is a huge range of deals available to meet everyone’s requirements.
