West Bank Luxor - visit it by bike! Jan 27, 2011
If you want to save money while you are in Egypt, or just on a shoestring, here is my advice. Once in Luxor, avoid booking an expensive tour from a local tour company to visit the West Bank. Instead you can walk daown to the local ferry, located right next to the Luxor Temple. You can then cross the NIle with the ferry and easily rent a bike for a day on the other side. It is better to go old fashion and choose a bike with a basket on the front - this will come handy to put your water bottles in, and water you will need a lot. Then it is very straightforward to bike to all the sites: Valley of the Kings, Temple of Hatshepsut, Valley of the Queens and Colossi of Memnon. The journey took my whole day, but was definitely fun and if you get lost you can always ask a local to help with directions. Total costs for ferry and bike: 2.5 USD. Not Bad...
