Hurghada Luxor day trip:
With a population around 500,000 people, it is the largest city in Upper Egypt and the administrative capital of the Governorate of Al-Uqsur.
The Nile divides the city into two parts. In the northeast of Luxor you find the famous Karnaktempel, which was the most important temple in ancient Egypt.
Its huge columns, obelisks and statues impress with their size. Further south is the Luxor Museum, followed by the Luxor Temple.
The Luxor Museum is home to recent finds from the area. The Luxor temple was built by Amenophis and Ramses and dedicated to Amun Ra, the king of the gods.
On the other side of the Nile the temple of the famous Queen Hatshepsut is located, who stems from the 18th Dynasty and is considered the best preserved temple in Thebes. It belongs to Deir El-Beheri, which is on the west bank of the Nile.
Not far from the Valley of the Kings, where Howard Carter found the almost intact tomb of Tutanchamun in 1922, are the impressive Colossi of Memnon located, which embody King Amenophis III.
The Valley of the Kings is considered especially spectacular due to its tombs of famous kings from the New Kingdom. A trip to Luxor by bus from Hurghada is a mandatory program for anyone who wants to get to know Egypt better.
