In a nutshell
Full of ancient history
Kuznetsov_Sergey Says: We passed through the lock at Isna in the early morning before the sunrise.Our boat had to go through a narrow and shallow lock in Isna. Facing the lock there must have been dozens of boats, each waiting for its turn.We have been told that it normally takes about 45 minutes...
We only had an hour or two to go ashore in Esna....so what better thing to do than to go shopping!!!
The Esna souq (markets) were located only a couple of minutes walk from where we were docked, and there were plenty of shops to tempt us tourists.
I had a really great time here doing plenty of bartering and buying a few local wares.
The best thing about the market here was that it wasn't too crowded, and I didn't get hassled too much, even though I spent most of the time shopping by myself.
What to pay: Don't pay what they ask - bargain hard!!
