A monumental number of archaeological relics from ancient Egypt remain evident in Luxor, the former capital of the New Kingdom.
Luxor is known for historic sites, museums, shopping, parks, and beaches. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: delve into the distant past at Temple of Karnak, explore and take pictures at ACE- Animal Care in Egypt, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Medinet Habu, and appreciate the history behind Colossi of Memnon.

Start your trip to Luxor by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

Bogota, Colombia to Luxor is an approximately 28-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 7 hours traveling from Bogota to Luxor. Traveling from Bogota in August, expect Luxor to be much warmer, temps between 49°C and 31°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Fri) so you can travel to Cairo.
