Luxor is in upper Egypt and the town is divided by the River Nile with the East Bank being more modern and hectic and the West Bank is more traditional and rural. The city used to be the capital Thebes in ancient Egyptian times and has a lot of ancient Egyptian Temples and monuments with more history being discovered. Luxor is the gateway to the valleys where the pharaohs their wives and the nobles have their tombs.
