8. A Felucca trip on the Nile.
Take one of the traditional Nile sail boats and relax with magnificent backdrop of Luxor's temples and the surrounding countryside and mountains.
The mortuary temple of the Egyptian pharaoh Ramesses II who died in 1212BC. Work on the construction of the temple took 20 years and you can still see the remains of what was once the tallest free standing statue in the world at about 25 metres before an earthquake brought it down. Among the impressive surviving columns of the temple you can see some fascinating carved scenes depicting some of the military victories of one of Egypt's greatest Pharaohs.
10. Habu Temple
The mortuary temple of the Egyptian pharaoh Ramesses III who died around 1155BC. The temple precinct measures approximately 200 metres by 300 metres and contains more than 7000 square metres of ancient wall reliefs, some of them depicting the defeat of the Sea Peoples during Ramesses' reign.
