We arrived back in Luxor this morning. On advice from some Aussie backpackers we decided to stay on the West Bank of the Nile this time. Although the two big temples are on the East so are all the tourist traps. The West Bank feels like a world away from the Luxor we were introduced to on the tour. Each side is helped in keeping its individuality by there being no bridge between them in the centre. However if you are a traveller on foot it makes little difference as there is a fleet of small boats to take you across at any time or you can catch the ferry for only 9p.
