Luxor

Luxor is clearly one of the richest locations for history in the world. According to our tour guide, over 25% of the WORLD'S antiquities were found in Luxor. That stat is just amazing, although the way they count antiquities leads me to some believe on why that is true. There is the Colossi of Memnon, Queen Hatshepsut's grave, the Valley of the Kings, Luxor Museum... all amazing places!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Rich History
  • Cons:Not enough time in Central Egypt
  • In a nutshell:All fans of history would find this home!

    Ich bin an einem Papyrus von Abu Simbel interessiert. In welcher Größe und zu welchem Preis? Ist es möglich das Papyrus auf einem Foto zu sehen?

    My first o/s destination was to Eygpt.(the start of a 6 month backpacking trip) Met Scott there and backpacked for 7 weeks. I must tell you a couple of very funny stories about this next time we meet.

    Would love to visit the world of Queen Hatshetsup next time I'm in Egypt. What an impression this exotic makes on you when you go there. Greetings from Australia and me!
