July is another very hot month in Luxor, Egypt and with an average temperature of 33°C it is the hottest month of the year. The average high temperature is the same as June at 41°C, and the average low is a still-warm 24°C, so cold drinks can be enjoyed on a warm terrace in a late evening. July shares much the same weather as June, with 10mm rain, 30% humidity 13 hours of sunshine per day.
The main event of July is Revolution Day, which is another public holiday. Revolution Day occurs on the 23rd and pays homage to the 1952 Revolution in which the Egyptian constitutional monarchy was overthrown. For those who can stand the heat and want to see Egypt up close and personal, a trip to the Temple of the Seti 1, dating back to the 13th century, would be worthwhile. It was at one point among the biggest temples in Thebes, and the remaining sections are still impressive, not least because of the intricate stone carvings paying tribute to Mut, Khonsu and Amon.
