Trains from Cairo Railways Station in Ramsis square leave frequently to make the 6 hours trip to Luxor. Sometimes, most visitors arrive on a three-day trip but staying there a week is even better. Visitors will get to see a number of pharaoh temples such as Karnak Temple, Luxor Temple, and Tombs of the Nobles in the early morning and late afternoon when they’re at their quietest. Sunset in particular is stunning and a great reason not to leave too early.
No trip to Luxor would be complete without a visit to the Deir el-Bahari (Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut) and acknowledgment of its position as a cradle of Egyptian civilization. Learning about this part of human history shows how far we’ve come as a world—and reminds us how far we still have to go.
