Luxor market is smaller than Cairo and Aswan but is rather more clean and faun to go around. i bought nice caftans and pants for the summer as well as hibiscus tea and handmade lamps. Totally worth visit!!

It could have been a good place to shop in Luxor if the sellers there didn't hassle tourists, they would even sell more.
