You've booked your ticket and packed your bags, but how familiar are you with your next exciting vacation destination? Sit back and let us give you the scoop on Luxor.
Cairo, Egypt's capital, is about 310 miles (499 kilometers) to the north of Luxor.
This corner of Egypt boasts a population of around 420,000 people, some of whom will surely be happy to provide you with a few travel tips.
Often haunting and impressive, ruins hold the key to important insights into our past. Discover the stories behind Luxor Temple and why this structure was abandoned many moons ago. Want some more ideas? Every destination has its own unique statues, but some certainly make you look twice! Come and discover one of the most prominent pieces of local art, Colossi of Memnon. But there's more. Temples have long attracted pilgrims seeking divine enlightenment in a complex world. Organize a visit to the holy site of Ramesseum and immerse yourself in your own mystical experience.
Put your seat in the upright position, stow your tray table and get ready to explore Luxor! Once you hit the tarmac at Luxor International Airport (LXR), the happening main streets will be only 5 miles (8 kilometers) west of here.
