Would you recommend visiting Luxor or Dahab, in addition to Cairo and Giza? Note, it will be middle of December.
It really depends on what you like. I think that if you can only choose one or the other, go to Luxor. Dahab is nice, but there's nothingin Dahab that can compare to visiting Karnak Temple, or the Valley of the Kings. Luxor is also easier to get to from Cairo. over 5 years ago
If you are monument and sightseeing oriented as "roundabout" mentioned then head to Luxor and enjoy the great temples and tombs over there. A felucca ride, strolling through the market place watching piles of colored spices and glittering merchandize as well as a clache ride are other activities which will add to your enjoyment of the city. Do not miss the balloon ride over the West Bank.
Dahab on the other hand is a peaceful beach town that is still primitive but many who like tranquility enjoy it to the maximum more than Sharm El Sheikh. A bedouin lunch on the beach and strolling through the local market in Dahab is very nice. Windsurfing, diving as well as other water activities can be practiced while there.
Luxor is accessible either by train 8 hours which departs at approx 7:00 pm or by by flight while Dahab is accessible via road of 6 hours drive.
