If you are into history.. then this is a place built over 2000 years period!! amazing. You need a hat as the sun is killing. Better to go with a tour guide.. Every place in the temple carries a story behind it. Drink plenty of water. At night definitely go for the sound and light show but wear a sweater.. As hot as it gets in the morning it also gets pretty cold at night.

Aside from the majesty of the place, I think it’s pretty obvious that I don’t need to review it. I only have one advice, try to imagine this place on how it looked like when it was intact and all the paint was still there. Walk the shoes of the pharaohs. It’s magical.

The size of Karnak is quite incredible - and really worth a visit. Despite greatly reduced tourist numbers due to COVID we decided to get there early morning (7.30am) and we’re really glad we did. We pretty much had the place to ourselves until 9/9.30 - only seeing one other couple ( and security guards who are extremely friendly). 2-2/12 hours is probably a good timeframe to see everything. It opens at 6am I think so would also be a good spot to watch the sunrise - the early morning light on the columns and statues is lovely. The tourist buses start turning up around 9/9.30 - many are day trippers from Hurghada - and then the hordes descend.
