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

The Luxor Corniche is a lovely walk to take a little stroll, watch the boats along the Nile, see a sunset and yes, probably be hassled by a falucca sailor or two. But that's no big deal, just say thanks, but no thanks.

The part of the Corniche near Luxor Temple is pretty but the hawkers are overly annoying. The part of the Corniche closer to Chicago House is beautifully designed - but empty. More tourists are needed to make it viable and exciting.

It was amazing walking by the Nile and the most charming excursion you can make is to take a Feluka ( small sail boat) in the Nile just before sun set
