The bustling city of Al Kharga is the largest town in the Western Desert and also the poster-child of the government’s efforts to modernise the oases. The town's wide, bare boulevards rimmed by drab concrete housing blocks are definitely not what most travellers conjure up when they picture an oasis idyll. Despite the less than picturesque surroundings, the town is a good base for exploring a handful of unique, gently crumbling sights found around this oasis valley floor.
