Luxor Destination

Luxor is a city on the east bank of the Nile River in Egypt. It’s on the site of ancient Thebes, the pharaohs’ capital at the height of their power, during the 16th-11th centuries B.C.E. Today’s city surrounds 2 huge, surviving temples. The royal tombs of the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens are on the river’s west bank.
While the East Bank has grown to become a modern city, it has retained its lush green setting, its traditional bazaar and stunning view of the Nile. The Valley of the Kings, the Valley of the Queens, the Workers Village, and the Temple of Medinet Habu are the highlights of Luxor’s West Bank.
