September in Luxor, Egypt is slightly cooler than the peak of summer, with an average temperature of 30°C a high of 38°C and low of 21°C. Rainfall remains the same at 10mm, but humidity increases to 35% and daily sunshine hours decrease to 12 hours.
The main event of September is Ramadan, during which time Egyptian Muslims fast between dawn and dusk, with a widely held belief that such a practice promotes piousness, holiness and self-purification. Whether you partake in this as a tourist or not is a personal decision, but there are plenty of other things to do during your stay. The Luxor Museum should be on everyone's itinerary, featuring items such as a cow-goddess head from Tutankhamun's tomb and a state of Tuthmosis III. There is also a museum of mummification, which displays artefacts relating to mummification. There are mummified remains of a crocodile, a fish, a cat, plus the tools used in the process.
The Hotel El Nakhil is a friendly hotel with rooms starting at just £25 per night. Featuring the traditional design elements of Egypt, the hotel would suit anyone looking to really experience the country in all its glory, and the botanical garden dares you to stay stressed while residing there. There are 11 good sized rooms available, ranging from single to triple rooms, and each has an en-suite bathroom as well as a balcony.
Cairo, perhaps Egypt's most famous city, has very similar weather to Luxor, which is welcome news to anyone who is looking to break their Egypt stay into multiple locations.
