Right on the banks of the river Nile, Luxor is one of Egypt's greatest tourist attractions. It contains a wealth of ancient monuments, but perhaps the most famous of all is the Valley of the Kings where holidaymakers can visit the tombs of Tutankhamen and other Egyptian pharaohs. In the centre of the resort lies Luxor Temple, a fairly compact temple that can be visited in under an hour, but you'll need more time to visit the magnificent Karnak Temple. When you want a break from sightseeing, you can pick up souvenirs at the bustling souk or just relax with a shisha at one of the local cafes. Luxor is the perfect destination to start your a cruise down the Nile, or why not pair this historic city with a stay in the popular Red Sea resort of Sharm el Sheikh?
