Luxor, Cairo, Hot Air Balloon Trip By Plane From Sharm
Luxor Nowadays is a city of some 150,500 people and is governed by special statutes that allow it more autonomy than other political areas of Egypt. One thing you might notice is that various government and other buildings conform to an ‘ancient’ building code. Particularly, the National Bank of Egypt “located near the Winter Palace Hotel”, the spa south of the police station, and the railway station are all designed to appear as Pharaonic constructs. All of this occurred after made it Egyptian of the modern town resulting mostly from the mania that resulted from Howard Carter’s discovery of the Tomb of Tutankhamun. As one might think, the city has all the amenities tourists might expect, including a variety of hotels, bars, nightclubs and restaurants.
Cairo, Has many fine monuments to tour. Most of the monuments here and elsewhere in Egypt are not so difficult to identify. Most have one of several different types of markers and the more important have full descriptions. Therefore, walking through one of the historical areas, one does not necessarily need a guide, though certainly it helps.
Cairo is a complicated city. Each district of this city by the Nile was established and populated under very diverse conditions and at various points across history. Cairo’s districts are unique in their own way, have their own culture and their own feel.
There are no more famous ancient sites within Egypt, or for that matter elsewhere in the world, than the Great Pyramids at Giza. They are, without question, the icon most associated with the Egypt. They have been both the main destination for tourists and a source of imaginative thought to the world for over three thousand years. However, there are actually over 100 pyramids in Egypt, many of which are relatively unknown to anyone who is not an ancient Egypt enthusiast. All but a very few are grouped around and near the City of Cairo, just south of the Nile Delta. Otherwise, only one royal pyramid is known in southern Egypt at Abydos, that being the one built by Ahmose, founder of the 18th Dynasty and Egypt’s New Kingdom. It may have also been the last royal pyramid built in Egypt.
