The media often characterizes Egypt as an ancient land of pharaohs and pyramids. The issue isn’t so much that characterization as it is the fixation on the past. Modern day Egypt doesn’t get anywhere near as much screen time as its ancient counterpart. This is a great shame indeed, as modern day Egypt has a rich and unique culture that isn’t often displayed to the world at large. That’s why cities like Luxor are so important. This city merges Egypt’s old traditions with the new, creating a culture that must be experienced in person to be appreciated.
What do we mean when we say that Luxor blends the old with the new? For starters, Luxor contains the ruins of one of Egypt’s most prominent cities - Ancient Thebes. Many, many centuries ago, Thebes was Egypt’s seat of power. What remains of Thebes’ magnificent temples can be found and visited in Luxor at any time. The ruins of Ancient Thebes are starkly contrasted by Luxor’s religious centers and luxury resorts. The Abu Haggag Mosque is both a popular tourist destination and a place of worship for Luxor’s Muslim community. The Winter Palace, on the other hand, is a 14th century marvel of British colonial architecture. In Luxor, these venues and the ruins of Ancient Thebes are only miles away from each other.
Luxor has a population of about 506,588 permanent residents as of 2018. Many of these citizens have lived in Luxor all their lives and intimately know the city. Luxor also receives many visitors each year, albeit in small waves each month. As a result, visiting Luxor should be a much more spacious experience than travelling to a place like Cairo. That’s why guests should use Bounce to store their things. Luxor’s relatively small tourist numbers may also indicate that the city has fewer luggage storage options than its larger counterparts. To be on the safe side, guests should use Bounce. Download the Bounce app and find a location near you.
Top Things to Do
Many people come to Luxor to see the ruins of Ancient Thebes in person. However, they end up staying because of a slew of exciting activities. Between hot air balloon rides, sailing across the Nile, and staying at luxury resorts, there are plenty of things to do in Luxor. Bounce recommends visiting the following venues when you touch down in Luxor.
People often call Luxor the “world’s greatest open-air museum.” Why? Because the ruins of Ancient Thebes are scattered all throughout the city. One could spend an entire day admiring these ruins, as well as some of Luxor’s other museums.
Karnak Open Air Museum: The Karnak Temple complex is a shining example of Ancient Egyptian architecture. Portions of the complex have been transformed into the Karnak Open Air Museum, an archeological site that houses detailed recreations of ancient buildings. Guests should Bounce away their baggage before visiting.
Luxor Museum: The story of how Thebes gave way to Luxor is quite long and complex. One could spend days reading about the city’s century spanning history. They could also visit the Luxor Museum to bolster their knowledge.
Mummification Museum: As the name implies, the Mummification Museum showcases how Ancient Egyptians used to preserve the deceased. Various embalming tools are on display here, as well as several canopic jars and sarcophaguses. One can even learn the Ancient Egyptian’s step by step process for mummification!
Luxor’s shopping scene has a very old school vibe to it; the city doesn’t really have very many traditional malls. Instead, numerous bazaars and markets can be found in Luxor. Patrons can purchase handcrafted goods at these venues - the sorts of items that make for perfect souvenirs.
Abo El Hassan Alabaster Factory: The Abo El Hassan Alabaster Factory is a great place to buy souvenirs and gifts for loved ones. Guests can purchase rare, hand carved alabaster statues and busts at this shop. Guests are politely asked not to bring too much luggage into the store.
Caravanserai: Guests can purchase all kinds of creative craft items at Caravanserai; everything from scarves, handbags, and pottery is on display here. Best of all, everything that’s on sale at Caravanserai is exactly that - on sale. You won’t have to break the bank just to buy an amazing item from this store.
Souq At Talaat: A souq is a street market of sorts that’s usually open once a week. The Souq at Talaat is open on Tuesdays; each week, the market restocks on fresh fruits, veggies, and legumes. Browse the market and get a real sense of Luxor.
Museums aren’t the only means of preserving culture and history. In many ways, food lets us connect with the people of the past as well. Guests who are visiting Luxor can look forward to experiencing some of Egypt’s finest cuisine and learning more about the city’s history and culture through taste.
Al-Sahaby Lane Restaurant: The Al-Sahaby Lane Restaurant specializes in traditional Egyptian dishes and Mediterranean cuisine. Special mention goes to the Chicken Shawarma, which is a huge hit among locals and visitors alike.
Jewel of the Nile: The Jewel of the Nile shares a name with a classic Lewis Teague film. In addition to that, it also serves amazing international dishes and is a vegetarian friendly establishment. The tomato soup and seabass with lemon juice are must haves.
Steigenberger Nile Palace Luxor Hotel: The Steigenberger Nile Palace is perhaps the single most popular resort in all of Luxor. Naturally, the restaurants inside of the hotel are also big hits. Special mention goes to The View, which offers a fine dining experience unlike any other.
