If you just visited the Luxor`s temples and tombs and you don`t want to leave the city without some souvenirs then you should know that in Luxor are numerous shops from where you can buy souvenirs. The Luxor souvenirs can be bought from bazaars like the one in Saria el-Karnak or from markets like the one in Sharia el-Birka. Here the tourists can buy carpets, scarabs, scarves, spices and other different local souvenirs. In these bazaars and markets have one common thing: the bargaining. There are numerous shops with Luxor souvenirs in the Luxor Temple`s vicinity and also in the tourist areas. Some nice souvenirs would be the alabaster pieces, like alabaster vases, that are typical Luxor souvenirs. The alabaster pieces can be found especially on the West Bank, have good prices and very good quality. Some of them are fakes so the buyers should pay attention to what they choose. Silver jewelries and painted papyrus are also for sale in many shops. Close to the Le Meridien Luxor Hotel is the Sharia Khaled ibn al-Walid, an excellent gallery where you can find Luxor souvenirs of a high quality, such as art works like city`s water colors, at reasonable prices. If you are looking for postcards or bookmarks, then Aboudi Bookshop is the place where you should go. It is located along the Winter Palace and here you can also find numerous international newspapers and English magazines, all of them having fixed prices. There are some things that the shopping in Luxor amateurs should know such as: there are shops that are not open on Sundays, the most of the shops (not only in Luxor but also around Luxor) are closed each Friday and on the Egypt`s public holidays.
