The West Bank of Luxor in Egypt is even more of an archaeological paradise than the East Bank. A string of pharaonic mortuary temples vies with the richly, decorated Tombs of the Nobles and the Workmen’s’ Village of Deir el-Medineh for the traveler’s attention. The West Bank is also the gateway to the amazing Valley of the Kings. Although the vast majority of visitors to Luxor still tend to stay on the East Bank, a growing number now consider the West Bank as a good accommodation option. Once you’re awake, no need to bother crossing the river…. all the sights are right at your doorstep.
