Back in Luxor why not visit the World Heritage Site of the Temples of Karnak on Luxor’s East Bank, said to be the largest temple compound in the world. Construction is estimated to have begun in the 12th Dynasty (1991-1785 BC) taking centuries to complete. Stroll along the majestic Avenue of the Sphinxes which connects the Luxor Temple with the Temple of Karnak to the north – an incredible sight and experience that is not to be missed!
Travel to Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt
Another popular vacation destination is Sharm El Sheikh on the Sinai Peninsula where the beautiful coastline meets the Red Sea and holiday-makers can enjoy the natural treasures of this beautiful part of the world. Take a day trip out to marvel at the brilliantly coloured coral reef from a glass bottom boat, or perhaps a more physical day of diving or snorkelling is more your cup of tea as you investigate the marine life of the Red Sea from beneath the waves.
Include a desert safari in your Egypt travel plans
For those who prefer the feel of the sand beneath their feet, then a Desert Safari may be more your style – enjoying the stunning landscape and images of the local Bedouin tribes as they go about their daily life.
