    Bedouin Vendors and Stalls along Lount Sinai: Bedouin Vendors and Stalls along Mount Sinai

    by machomikemd Written Oct 17, 2013

    along the way going up mount sinai, you will see enterprising bedouins who double as ambulant vendors of souvenir items, plus there are some mini souvenir stands where tourists can buy some mount sinai souvenirs like post cards, local crafts, trinkets and more, but not the heavy items as you need to carry them down the mountain and that will be extra weight. some of the mini souvenir stands are beside the snack shops along the camel route too.

    Sain Katherine Monastery Shops: Shops in Front of Saint Katherine Monastery

    by machomikemd Written Oct 16, 2013

    being a major tourist area mainly for christian pilgrims from around the world, the small town of Saint Katherine centers around the Saint Katherine Monastery and Mount Sinai at the back of it, but since having many souvenir stores along the route to Mount Sinai is a no brainer, most of the souvenir shops and stores are located in front of the Monastery, at the shared taxi, private cars and van parking area where they sell all the touristy stuffs, ranging from the secular like fridge magnets, walking sticks, post cards, paper weights, clothes and more and the religious items like crucifixes or rosaries and statues of saints and more.

    most of the shops are open from 6:00 am to 5:00 pm everyday (as many climbers go down from 6:00 am to 8:00 am, that is why the early opening).

    What to buy: all the touristy items you need

    What to pay: depends on your haggling skills

    Souvenirs on the mountain

    by Diana75 Updated Jul 17, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: As in almost all touristy places in Egypt, also on the mountain are a lot of Bedouins selling small souvenirs, most of them consisting in rocks, stone or alabaster eggs or statues.

    As soon as the sun is up they open their stands hoping that the tourists will be tempted to buy something.

    St. Catherine Village souvenir shops

    by Diana75 Updated Jul 17, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the center of the small village of St. Catherine there are a couple of souvenirs shops from where you can buy traditional Bedouin products, but also papyruses (I'm not quite sure that are original) or semiprecious stones jewels.

    Probably due to the lack of numerous tourists in the area, the prices are likely to be higher than in other places.

    Bedouin souvenirs in Uyûn Mûsa

    by Diana75 Updated Jul 11, 2006

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It was 7am when we arrived in Uyûn Mûsa on our way to St. Catherine.

    On the left side there were some covered stalls and in a couple of minutes a Bedouin girl came and showed us some bracelets and necklaces the Bedouins had for sale.

    We promised them to stop again the next day in the way back to Cairo to buy something and so we did.

    They asked around USD 1-/piece for the hand made jewelry and wood statues.

    Shopping by the road

    by MalenaN Updated Dec 30, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the way from Taba to St Chatherine’s Monastery we stopped by the road to have tea. We passed a small shop where a minibus had stopped for tea, but the taxi driver said he preferred to stop in a village (just a few houses) where they were very poor. We had our tea and the woman serving the tea showed the bracelets and necklaces she had for sale. I liked one necklace and it was 10 pounds. I did not want to negotiate about the price, but only had a 5 pound note and a 50 pound note. The woman didn’t have change so in the end I paid 5 pounds and the taxi driver 5 pounds. This kind of jewellery can be bought in the shops in Dahab as well.
