There are a lot of good things about learning about Luxor. It is in Upper Egypt, about 700 kilometers from Cairo. The best ways to get there in terms of time and money are by plane or train with sleeping cars. Several vital sites from the time of the Pharaohs can be found in and around Luxor. In short, it was cut in half, with one side becoming the “east bank” and the other becoming the “west bank.”

The Luxor and Karnak temples on the East Bank can only be seen during the day. It takes about four and a half hours to get from Karnak to Luxor.

The Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, the Valley of the Kings, and the Colossi of Memnon are just a few sights on the West Bank that could keep you busy for a whole day. You will have time to see the Temple of Hatshepsut while on the West Bank, and you’ll be able to do it now while the chance is still there. The trip to the Valley of the Kings took two hours, but it only took fifteen minutes to get to the Colossi of Memnon.
