After M and I said goodbye to filthy hot Cairo in April, we hopped on an overnight train down to Luxor, Egypt in the south, an adventure all on its own. Luxor is the place to be in Egypt, since it is where most of the well-known ancient Egyptian sights are located across the Nile on the west bank, like King Tut’s tomb in the Valley of the Kings. There are two amazing temple complexes located in town, Karnak Temple and Luxor Temple, both of which we visited on our first day in +100 degree weather. We stayed at the most amazing place called Nefertiti Hotel, seriously, if you are ever in Luxor, stay there. I have so much to write and share with you guys about Luxor, it’s almost overwhelming, along with my tips for traveling in Egypt. In the meantime, I’ll leave you with some photos of Luxor to keep you busy.
These photos are taken from Karnak Temple, one of the most visited sites in Egypt.
