    Karnak temple: Son et lumiere

    by catkin Written Jul 1, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We went to a son et lumiere (sound and light) show at Karnak temple. I have to say after paying our £14 we were all disappointed and very bored with it all. I think I expected more from the show-perhaps I was imagining the Jean Michel Jarre concert in the London docklands I don’t know but this sound and light show was nothing like it!
    The narrative which I lost track of very quickly was accompanied by parts of the temple being illuminated by white or the odd coloured light-there were no moving images or lasers to be seen anywhere. The music that was played during the performance didn’t sound remotely Egyptian- again I think I imagined Aida or Nabucco.
    As one part of the narrative is over everyone moves en mass to the next point where another part of the narrative begins. The last 45 minutes were sat on some seats overlooking the sacred lake while the music, disjointed narrative and lights continued-the lights in the sky from the crescent moon, stars and planets were far more interesting

    Nice place for a beer

    Opposite the Luxor temple on the corniche walkway below road level is the metropolitan cafe/bar. Cool air from the nile makes this pleasent day and evening and you avoid the seedy side of bar life in Luxor. Not cheap about E£12 a bottle of domestic.
    Locals hang out and drink here.

    Its not the best sound and light show in Egypt but is still a great experience, and if you are only there for a Nile cruise it`s the most accessable. Definately worth a visit

    Dress Code: cover up to keep the mozzies at bay, but it will still be warm. A small torch is handy to help keep your footing.

    the picture is the ticket from the show at Abu Simbol, and will be replaced when I can find the Karnak one !

    Luxor Bazaar evening walk

    It's more interesting than a disco or a nightclub if you want to feel the pulse of the city's real life.
    And you can also buy some cheap souvenirs.
