Luxor

Luxor has often been called the worlds greatest open air museum, as indeed it is and much more. The number and preservation of the monuments in the Luxor area are unparalleled anywhere else in the world that know of. Actually, what most people think of as Luxor is really three different areas, consisting of the City of Luxor on the East side of the Nile, the town of Karnak just north of Luxor and Thebes, which the ancient Egyptians called Waset, which is on the west side of the Nile across from Luxor.

Luxor, the land of pharaohs and ancient architecture, is famous to tourists from all over the world. Though most of the tourists are mainly attracted to the sight seeing and taking a tour across the Nile River, there have a major shift in the likings of the people as they have a great time enjoying the entertainment options that Luxor holds in store for them.

As you spend the whole day enjoying the beauty of the statues, the temples, the monuments, have a superb time in the evening as you enjoy the folk music. And the obvious place to enjoy this is the music clubs. As Egypt is the land famous for its flutes and harps, enjoy the soothing music as the artists strike one of the fascinating tunes. Learn more about the folk music that is an inseparable part of the various celebrations in Luxor.

In recent years there has been a major change and there have been gradual inclusions that have seen the western, Arabic and Turkish influences in the characteristically folk music of Luxor. Sense the beauty of the Sawahii music or the Bedouin music. Also do not miss the Saidi music that is typically based on mizmar, the twin pipe clarinet.
In addition to the folk music, entertainment in Luxor is characterized by Nubian art. Listen to their folk music that has undergone recent changes to adapt itself to the latest cultural innovations. The Nubian art that has inseparable connections with Egyptian art and civilization is something which is a must for every one who is on to trip to Luxor. Get enthralled as you see the colossal statues or the silver vessels. Or enjoy the dazzling collections of jewels and the fine works of the ceramics. Recently as efforts have been taken to promote eco- tourism, innumerable NGOs have come forward to help the locals. As the people of Luxor suffer from immense poverty, efforts have been taken to sell the handicrafts that they make in their households.

As you drift peacefully high into the sky you will have a bird's eye view of the magnificent wonders of the West Bank and the surrounding countryside. Sometimes it is even possible to exchange greetings with the people below. Your flight includes transfers from your hotel to the balloon site and the flight time is a minimum of 45 minutes. Light refreshments are served and you will receive a certificate to commemorate this special event. An unforgettable experience!
