Travelling to Luxor

Driving in Egypt is not recommended as there are few rules that are either adhered to or enforced. The roads are mostly of very poor quality, with numerous bumps and potholes. Egyptian drivers overtake dangerously all the time and visitors should beware of cars coming towards them in their own lane. Night driving is particularly dangerous as headlights are often not used.

You can get to Luxor from Cairo by rail. Trains depart from Ramses Station. Arriving in Luxor can be a stressful experience, as you may be mobbed by hotel-touts and taxi drivers, among others. As most places are less than 15 minutes walking distance away from the train station, it's fine to start walking if you don't have too much luggage.

Buses and service taxis leave from Ahmed Halmi Terminal near Ramses Station. By bus, you'll arrive at the new station on a side road just north of Luxor Temple. If you arrive by service taxi at the depot off Sharia el-Karnak, just to the north of the centre, you'll be able to walk to the centre in under 20 minutes. It's also possible to catch a minibus, caleche or taxi if you are heading for the southern part of town.

Many international flights now go directly to Luxor. Alternatively, you can fly into Cairo and catch a domestic connection to Luxor. From Cairo, Egypt Air operates regular flights to Luxor, taking 45 minutes.

Travellers who've come up from Aswan by felucca are dependent on private taxis from Esna or Edfu, whose drivers will rendezvous with hustlers at the checkpoint south of Luxor and steer you to their hotels. Four- to six-day cruises down the Nile, with accommodation en route, are also available.
