there is a lot too see of course there are a lot of tourists and a lot of people they live from them, mostly they are polite and friendly, some try to trick so be carefull

Next to Cairo, this is the city holding the most impressive Pharaonic monuments. And they're bountiful too. Valley of the Kings, the Theban Necropolis and Karnak are all a few miles away from the city of Luxor.i visit Luxor with
