do not trust anyone that trying to approach you in the temple
Jan 2020
first time to Egypt, we are not traveling with group. the temple is fantastic, but some local people in temple are just like robbers.
before go to Egypt I heard a lot about the big issue that many Egyptians in sightseeing spots rip visitors off ,I just keep in mind and was very careful while in sightseeing spots.
there was someone wearing the suit that looked like he is the staff in temple, he waved to us and said follow him, I thought since he is the staff so no need to be nervous. he took us to a monument or smt like that and just told us some few words about the temple bra bra bra, then asked tips not only his but also the other man standing beside him.
that was ridiculous !! literally I dont wanna give them anything but my hubby gave him 50 egyptian puonds at last.
beware of those Egyptians near you in sightseeing spot !!

Number one place to visit in Luxor

Have visited this site many times over the years and each time we see and learn something new. Take a trip around the perimeter of the site where you will come across some beautifully decorated temples that most tours don't get to visit

Try and go early as it can get very busy. We went in the afternoon and it was difficult to move freely as there were so many visitors.

If you are in Luxor, then you must allow a few hours to visit the Karnak temple complex / open air museum. It is easy to Imagine what this place looked like in its day, splendid, ostentatious, colourful. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, a sun hat and bring a bottle of water, as the temple complex gets hot & crowded as the day goes on. You won't be disappointed.

Must do

This is a must do trip while in Luxor. The size and detail are totally something you should not miss. Remember to take a hat or umbrella as it is very hot at this time.

Carvings, statues, history all around you

There is just so much to see it can be overwhelming. Take some time, take some notes or have a guide book. This is such impressive history you want to spend time getting it right.

Karnak is a relatively large complex. There are so many parts to explore. Allow yourself at least a half day for this temple.

It is full of artifacts scattered around the temple. It is truly a wonderful exploration.

I hired a private guide at the temple, for three hours and then explored it on my own. I ended up coming back a second time, and walked and just walked around until it closed. There is just so much to take in.

The light show is relatively good and I enjoyed it. Good to catch, if you have the time. Not amazing! It is beautiful at night and has a different feeling.
