After almost two years of development, Luxor tourist dock for floating hotels has been handed over to the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities after being rehabilitated.
Samia Sami, the ministry’s permanent undersecretary said that the development project began in November 2019 and was carried out by the Engineering Authority for Armed Forces.
The work included the installation of a new special drainage system for Nile boats and a fire extinguisher system.
The floor was paved with marble and granite while mural paintings were erected to decorate the walls of the dock.
These murals depict scenes from the ancient Egyptians' daily life, rural areas in upper Egypt and several sceneries from the surrounding environment such as the Nile, felluca and palm trees.
A collection of benches and sun shades were installed along with garbage bins, services kiosks and shops for tourists.
