A monumental number of archaeological relics from ancient Egypt remain evident in Luxor, the former capital of the New Kingdom.
On the 6th (Sat), appreciate the history behind Temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el Bahari, explore the different monuments and memorials at Valley of the Kings, then appreciate the history behind Luxor Temple, and finally explore the ancient world of Temple of Karnak.

Plan my day in Luxor using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Lagos, Nigeria to Luxor is an approximately 9-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and taxi; or drive. Traveling from Lagos to Luxor, you'll lose 1 hour due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Lagos in July, plan for much warmer days in Luxor, with highs around 48°C, while nights are about the same with lows around 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Sharm El Sheikh.
