The Souks or the local markets are among the most interesting attractions of Egypt - it is no exception in Luxor. El Souk is a local market near the Luxor Temple. There are lots of merchandise on display: spices, scarves, leather goods, and much more. Locals also come here to shop for food and suppliers so you will also see stands selling fruits, vegetables, and meat.
Be prepared for every shop-owner to trying to entice you into their shop. It’s all part of the experience and enjoy it for what it is. If you are interested in buying something in the market, do not forget to bargain. Haggling can be a bit of fun for both sides.
