A monumental number of archaeological relics from ancient Egypt remain evident in Luxor, the former capital of the New Kingdom.
Popular historic sites such as Medinet Habu and Valley of the Artisans (Deir el-Medina) are in your itinerary. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Avenue of Sphinxes and Tomb of Ramses III. There's much more to do: explore the ancient world of Tomb of Ramses VI, stop by Habiba Gallery, take an in-depth tour of Karnak Open Air Museum, and don't miss a visit to Deir el-Shelwit Temple.

For traveler tips, more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Luxor online trip planner.

Bengaluru, India to Luxor is an approximately 14.5-hour flight. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 3.5 hours traveling from Bengaluru to Luxor. Traveling from Bengaluru in November, plan for a bit cooler nights in Luxor, with lows around 16°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Sun) early enough to go by car to Aswan.
