    Morris Hotel

    by

    Opened in January 2006 the Morris hotel is situated in a very quiet and convenient location to all amenities and historical sites and just a few minutes walking from the main tourist attractions in Luxor; Karnak Temple, Luxor museum, Luxor Temple and the Mummification museum.

    Upon entering the hotel you will feel like you are in a palace. Surrounded by fine marble vases and columns, beautiful wall drawings you will walk upon a beautiful marble floor work. The hotel has a classical theme throughout and is decorated with elegant furnishings.

    My room had a double bed that was quite comfortable. There was also a mini bar, television and a small balcony. The bathroom was clean and tidy, with a tub/shower and single sink.

    There is a pool on the top floor on the West Bank Terrace You can request your breakfast be served up on the West Bank Terrace and watch the sunrise. The Terrace also offers sandwiches and snacks during the day.

    Unique Quality: The views from the West Bank Terrace are spectacular, the best of any hotel in Luxor. Here you have a panoramic view of Luxor, the West Bank and the magical river Nile

    Directions: Located in the heart of downtown Luxor with a walking distance from Luxor Temple and the River Nile.

Cruising the nile

by nato75

We are travelling the Egypt in April 2011 and want to do a cruise on the Nile. We were looking at going on a Dahabiyya. It seems that these trips are more designed just for relaxing rather than seeing the sites around luxor and aswan at the end. Can anyone shed more light on our suspicions.

I would love to try a dahabeya, but they're out of many people's price range.
Nevertheless, from what I've gleaned over the years, it seems that they cover the same visits as the large cruise boats and then several more where the large boats cannot get moored.
I do believe, though, that the whole experience is a lot more "laid back" and personal in general.

Having done a number of cruises as a tour director, I can tell you the same, a dahabiyya cruise is nice indeed. The layed back notion is due to their often longer itinerary and leisurely exursions. That usually means more time at each site. Some of them are able to make stops, that the bigger boats do not make.

Understand that most cruises on the Nile, that claim a five star rating, are not really five star. They are not bad, just not five star. Here are a couple of real five star companies.

This is a really good dahabiyya operator.

A dahabiyya cruise is less luxury thtn the big five star ones, but it is "quiet luxury" so to speak. Boats are of course much smaller.

Asn alternative would be a luxury felucca cruise. Although mostly known as really small sailboats with limited ameneties, there are some that shine.

Bear in mind that the names felluca and dahabiyya have become more or less the same to some operators.

Remember not to drink the water, and refrain from contact with the river water. Bring toilet paper with you. Trust me. You will thank me later....d:o)

Sorry, I meant to include a couple of good Dahabiya operators. Here they are.

Travel Tips for Luxor

The new sound and light show in the karnak

by EsraaTalaat

Based on the available informations after collecting the views of the audience about sound and light show in the karnak , the show has been developed and become more interested also the duration has been reduced. The light , seats and sound system has been developed also the form of the show has been changed without changing his historical content. Tourists from all over the world liked the new show also all the heads of the states and all the heads of ministries who visited luxor and attended the show were admired by it .

spot the differance

by stemc

To see how the sights use to look before they were restored and the sand was excavated out of the temples buy the book A JOURNEY IN EGYPT ( BONECHI PUBLISHERS) by David Roberts a Scot who visited Egypt in 1838-9 for 11months drawing and painting in watercolours and oils the sights ,temples he visited

The colours on the columns and walls of the hieroglyphs are very bright giving you a good idea of how colourful the temples were.

Take a look at the Nile river

by Beograd

This is one of my «from the bus» pictures. It was shot during my first encounter with the grand and divine Nile river on my way from Hurghada to Luxor. I grew up on two beautiful rivers, Sava and Danube, but the Nile is something else. It is the longest river in the world, with water colors that can’t be described. It is so wide…

The legend says that the one who drinks water from the Nile river will return to Egypt some day. I took a sip in Cairo and now I only have to wait (-_-)

Just a little perspective

by ATXtraveler

One of the things that people do not realize about the Egyptian Civilization is how grand of a scale everything is built on.

Look at the picture, and take into account that I am 6'3" and I am dwarfed by the huge stone statues behind me.

Luxor Railway Station

by goutammitra

We were amazaed by the cleanliness and efficiency of Luxor Railway station. Though, it is a small station with very few trains and few passengers, we found the sation is extremely clean and very efficient. Since, Luxor is a touristy destination, they have decorated the station with beautiful murals and have painted them well contrary to our Indian Railway station, which is always filthy and over crowded.

It was a beautiful welcoming change from our normal rouine.
