Things to Do When You Visit Luxor in Egypt

Many of us have dreamed of visiting the magical land of the pharaohs and visiting the monuments of the ancient Egyptians.  If you are lucky enough to go on holiday to Egypt, why not consider going to Luxor on the banks of the river Nile?

The modern city of Luxor is built on the remains of ancient Thebes, and this interesting article takes you on a trip around what you can see and do in Luxor.  On the east bank there ar mighty temples, the Luxor Museum, the Mummification Museum and plenty of shops, bazaars and restaurants.

Crossing to the west bank of the Nile takes you to the land of the dead and you can visit the Valley of the Kings, the Valley of the Queens, the Tombs of the Nobles, the ancient workman's village at Deir-el Medina and the mortuary temples of the pharoahs.
