  • Market: The secret to markets in Egypt is to keep walking. Eventually the market will be less oriented for tourists and more targeted toward locals.
  • Temples: A must see is Luxor temple at night. The lights make the reliefs clearer, and it can be very peaceful if there are no large tour groups. A mosque was constructed on TOP of part of the temple when the temple was still covered with sand. The mosque is still there, only the door is one story off the floor!
  • Museums: Unlike the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, the Luxor Museum and the Mummification Museum focus on quality rather than quantity. The objects in these museums are organized in a coherent manner with modern displays that even have labels!
