Luxor is the premier travel destination in Upper (southern) Egypt and the Nile Valley. The dynastic and religious capital of Middle Kingdom and New Kingdom Egypt, Luxor has much to offer the traveller, from vast temples, to ancient royal tombs, via spectacular desert and river scenery and a bustling modern life. The old capital of Egypt, Thebes, was on the West bank of the Nile. That is where most of the ruins and tombs are. The modern city of Luxor is on the East bank. That area has the train and bus stations, most of the hotels and restaurants, some museums, tourist shops and so on. Most visitors (and almost all tour groups) stay on the East bank and travel across for the tourist sites but, in recent years, there has been an increase in hotels on the West bank and many independent travelers stay there.

Luxor  Main Districts : Although a relatively small town by Egyptian population standards, Luxor is quite extensive and is best divided up into several 'districts' or areas that group the main attractions on their respective sides of the river Nile:

East Bank the town, the Luxor Temple, the Temple of Karnak, The Museum, trains, hotels, restaurants
West Bank the location of the major ruins including Valley of the Kings, the Valley of the Queens and other important sites; the Western Valley ruins, and a few hotels.

Luxor Landmarks & Popular attractions :  Luxor  definite highlights, not-to-be-missed, include:

The Valley of the Kings
The temple complexes of Luxor and Karnak
Medinet Habu
The Tombs of the Nobles

Things to Do in Luxor : Walk from the Valley of the Queens across the desert and over the cliffs to the Valley of the Kings and ride around Ancient Thebes .  A local felucca ride just before sunset . Take a Nile cruise  for a 3 Nights  trip to Aswan (the reverse trip is recommended, however, due to Sailing schedule ). Hire a donkey, horse, or camel to ride around Luxor's west bank.
