Luxor, Egypt, is one of the most beautiful and historical holiday places in the world. Tourists have been coming here since ancient times to experience Egypt and the sights and wonders are just as interesting for the modern tourist as they were all those years ago. The good thing is you don’t have to have spent years studying the ancient history to appreciate it. Tombs, temples and museums, it is all there, still standing on the banks of the river Nile waiting to be explored by you.
