Fabric Buying

by JorieM

Where in Luxor, Egypt, can I buy Egyptian cotton by the metre (or yard).I'm a quilter and am wanting some pieces for my home quilt guild.

Thanks.

Re: Fabric Buying

Luxor souk/market will have fabric to offer.

What is most admirable to get will be Asyout lace. The Aswan High Dam Monument has patterns of Asyout lace. I love it! But never found a place to get it.

Hi, my friend is a quilter also and we found so many lovely fabrics in the local souq, not the tourist souq. It is to be found behind the Emilio hotel and is lined with vendors of all sorts - the souq is not paved so watch where you are walking. In some of the side streets you will also find fabrics, but you will have to search as they don't necessarily stand out. Have a great time searching.

Travel Tips for Luxor

Bravery not necessary

by lovejoysh

Did tour including boat trip from Luxor to Aswan for first visit to Egypt:found it too organized, guides in a hurry to return you to boat for meals, time at sites was limited, wasting time waiting for others to return to bus/from hotel rooms,those factory visits(guide gets a commission), given no time for own shopping,missing out on places e.g.Khan el Khalili in Cairo due to traffic.Told ofsome very interesting places," but we won't be going there" e.g. in Luxor(Museums, Tombs of the Nobles, Artisans Village, Medinet Habu to name a couple) Tours are great for some people but not for me.Frustratingly brief glimpses in Valley of Kings etc so went back in 2009 and stayed in Luxor West Bank with a friend:did it ourselves: found it was much cheaper,more relaxing,more time at sites,met locals not view them from the insular atmosphere of boats/buses. Bookings best made there - do your homework-I have picked up many hints on how to get around Luxor with no hassles or problems. Bravery not necessary. Apart from the amazing variety of places in Luxor (many not on tour agendas), the people and food are high on my list. Eating traditional food with a family in their home is fantastic as are some of the restaurants. It took me four trips to Luxor to find a family with sons who are taxi drivers/tour drivers. These brothers, whilst not running a business together co-operate with each other if one is already booked and ensure that a driver will be available for short or longer trips. They are a good example of close family members helping each other out - they are all quietly spoken with good English(capable in other languages), not 'in your face' or aggressive or pushy as some . They can arrange a family meal as well as trips or activities within and out of Luxor. It was so good to find that they can be trusted and are genuinely honest and sincere people. They live on the West Bank and contact can be made with Ahmed Adly on 002 0127582764 or by email: ahmedadly2010@yahoo.com I had to share this with readers and hope they get the opportunity to visit Luxor soon and experience what I found.

New Excavations

by sayedaburas

Although most of Karnak has been thoroughly excavated, the temple still conceals and occasionally reveals more of the Pharaohs' secrets and mysteries.
After being buried for nearly 3,600 years in the temple ruins, a statue of Neferhotep, whose name means "beautiful and good", was lately uncovered by archaeologists from the Centre Franco-Egyptien D'√Čtude des Temples de Karnak in a niche 1.5m below the foundation pit of Hatshepsut's obelisk at the Wadjyt hall. It is a life-sized statue of the Pharaoh in the customary royal striding position, wearing the royal head-cloth nemes and holding a mace in one hand. The forehead bears an emblem of a cobra, which Ancient Egyptians used as a symbol on the crown of their Pharaohs. They believed that the cobra would spit fire at approaching enemies.

The second half of the statue is still buried in sand and waiting to be unearthed, but according to archaeologists there are several obstacles to be overcome. Lifting out the dyad would be a critical operation requiring accuracy and specialised techniques.
Egyptologists are divided into two groups; Some think that this is a unique statue of a Pharaoh who has few representations, as well as its being a valuable addition to the overwhelming number of monuments at Karnak Temple. On the opposing side are others fear an unpredictable disaster that might lead to major damage to the obelisk or the portico.

A professional committee of French and Egyptian architects, archaeologists and restorers has been assigned, to discuss the issue and decide on a solution. "We cannot remove a whole temple to unearth a statue."

Heat, hassle and holidays......ahhhh

by chigna

Dont bother with the karnak light show.....it is long and boring and you cant see much of the temple.
The valley of the kings is a must and can easily be organised by yourself, dont pay reps prices.
Luxor is quieter than cairo, almost peaceful.
Do try to get to Cairo to see the pyramids and sphrinx and dont miss out on the very large, very hot and very cluttered cairo museum. It will make you appreciate Luxor even more when you return. A day trip to the red sea and taking a boat out to a coral island. learnt to snorkle with the whippet thin guide in shallow water. (im a full figured woman and it is not easy to snorkle and hold your stomach in to avoid the razor sharp coral...!)
A wonderful lunch of fish, rice and fresh cucumber, tomatoes and melon served on the boat then back for a couple more hours swimming.
It s a 3 hour drive through the desert, stopping once for a 5LE loo break and a drink.
The best bit was coming back with the sun setting over the rocks and my sunburn screaming.....my own fault. Dont forget the factor 100 next time...

Only One Dollar!!!

by kenmerk

You are likely to get this kind of sales approach in Luxor (and elsewhere)...

"Mister, mister, felucca ride, only one dollar !!!"

But if you inquire into actually taking the sailboat ride, they change the story to "one dollar to LOOK at the felucca boat, its five or ten bucks if you actually want to RIDE one... I saw this approach with t-shirt, trinkets, and most anything else that a tourist might want to buy...

I know, they are just trying to make a living, but I probably would have bought/done more stuff if they were a little more straight forward...

Near the Valley of the Kings

by CandS

There is a lot to see around the Valley of the Kings area... We took a donkey ride from the Nile up to the Valley of the Kings and had some great views along the way. If you get the chance to do a donkey ride then go for it...it's fairly comfortable and a lot of laughs... Some of the bigger guys found it uncomfortable (and wanted to carry the donkey instead of having it carry them!) but most of us thought it was fine - much better than riding a horse, that's for sure!
