Simon Calder's Holiday Helpdesk: In search of a sunny holiday in March - Simon Calder - Travel - The Independent
Simon Calder's Holiday Helpdesk: In search of a sunny holiday in March - Simon Calder - Travel - The Independent: Luxor is, in my experience, the most reliably sunny location within a short-haul flight from Gatwick. It is also the archaeological heartland of Egypt, steeped in antiquity.
Despite the increasing rumblings of discontent elsewhere in Egypt, Luxor has remained peaceful - hitting the headlines only through last month's tragic balloon crash, in which 19 tourists died; all balloon flights in the province of Luxor are currently suspended.
There are some great hotels with excellent facilities, as well as some cheap-and-cheerful hotels if you are keen to stretch your holiday cash.
