Historic city: Once the ancient city of Thebes, Luxor is now a fully-fledged city in its own right. With the River Nile running right through its middle Luxor has become a key stopping point on Nile cruise holidays, and many of the famous old Egyptian structures are found on the east bank of the river. Indeed, Karnak (the location of the renowned Karnak Temple) used to be a separate town to the north-east but it is so popular with tourists on holidays to Luxor it has now become a part of the city itself. Karnak is often described as the world's greatest open air museum, but the same description could easily be applied to the entire eastern side of Luxor. After all, where else in the world could you see colossal statues, huge monuments and temples all within walking distance? That's not to say the west bank doesn't have any attractions - the Valley of the Kings with its famous tomb of Tutankhamen is to the west of the Nile, as is the Valley of the Queens. All in all, you could spend endless days here on your own voyage of discovery.
