Shopping in Luxor, Luxor

See the Luxor Guide ›
Egypt's insider take:

The main Luxor Souk, restored and covered in the fashion of the Dubai Gold Souk, is full of aggressive touts and lacks the interest of either the Khan Al Khalili in Cairo or the Nubian Market in Aswan. Look instead in smaller shops on the west bank or on east bank side streets for scarves of locally produced cotton and antique copies of antiquities made for tourists of an earlier age. The alabaster factories on the road between the Valley of the Kings and Hatshepsut's Temple are notable for the naïve paintings of lions, Islamic pilgrimage scenes, and of course, pharaonic pastiche painted on their exterior walls.
