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... 更多
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... 更多
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
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.
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... 更多
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
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.
While we were there the trees all had lights wrapped round them, and looked very nice lit up at night. A Walk along the Nile is a must, or just sit and watch the boats or sunset.
