Holidays in Luxor are a chance to immerse yourself in a veritable open-air museum, with temples, tombs and monuments dotting the region. The city itself is buzzing with activity, allowing a Luxor holiday to fuse both old and new with magical results. Tour the Valley of Queens on the West bank, visit the tomb of Tutankhamun and soak up the magic on a memorable sunset cruise along the mighty Nile. When evening rolls around, catch the sound and light show at Karnak and have your camera ready to capture the Luxor temple all lit up, before indulging in a delicious meal by the waterfront. This colourful city is perfect for culture lovers who can't wait to explore what history left behind – before basking on the beautiful golden beaches, of course. There is plenty for children to do too, with unforgettable boat rides on the great River Nile available.
The best time to visit Luxor is from October to May, when the weather is quite pleasant, streets are filled with lively touristy vibe and interesting nightly entertainment. That’s exactly when you see many tourists strolling around the banks of river Nile; some are busy soaking the natural beauty whereas others are ready to embark on their Nile Cruise! The nearest airport is Luxor International Airport, which is just 6 kilometres away from the city. From the airport, you have multiple options to reach the city/your hotel through an airport shuttle, bus or a taxi.
