The Corniche, runs along the east bank of the Nile. Because of the touts, we only use it when necessary to get to the local ferry, just downstream from the far end of Luxor Temple, when staying in the Pavillon Winter. The railing on the Nile side has only helped a little, but Corniche men seem to start off talking... More

The corniche in Luxor is long, and passes by several tourist sites (Luxor Museum, Mummification museum, Luxor Temple). It's walkway is quite wide and has several benches along the way. I recommend walking as close to the water as possible, to avoid the barrage of horse carriages who constantly try to get your attention. The Nile in Luxor is nothing... More

Luxor has nice view of Nile as well, but if you more interested in seeing something more serene and untouched, Aswan is the location!!

there is no breeze in the city it seems unless you are on the Nile or atop of a cliff in Mokkatam. Negotiate your fare with the captain of a felucca, bring a bottle of champagne, brie, baguette and strawberries and have a lovely evening meal as the sun sets

I spent 3 nights in Luxor & as I like to walk around the towns I visit I went for a few strolls along the Corniche which runs alongside the Nile.....the physical environment is pretty clean (certainly by Egyptian standards) & at night Luxor temple is floodlit & looks quite impressive. The Winter Palace Hotel (where Agatha Christie wrote Death... More

Nice place for walking, riding Hantour (Horse Cart), and watching sunset. May attractions are overlooking the Corniche side, Luxor Temple, Luxor Museum, Karnak Temble is near also, and we can watch the west bank of the Nile where the Valley of kings locates. The place is beautiful and romantic by night as well.

A walk along the Nile enjoying the sights and sounds and especially the lighted Luxor temple in the night is a great experience. They hawkers are very aggressive which is a put off but still..

if the new Corniche does not leave you feeling like you are in one of the most breathtaking Cities in the world - walk it again and look around you, walk parts of it at differing times of day night and of course morning. Luxor Temple one side of you West Bank on the other and always the Nile. Come... More

They have put fencing around the ferry terminal area so stops people crossing the road without caution to stop accidents plus seating now has light 'umbrellas' which is an improvement
