Temple of Abu Simbel Shopping: 5 reviews and 5 photos

  Great Temple of Ramses II
by sue_stone

If you need a break from temples or have some spare time before catching your bus, there are plenty of souvenir shops near the car park/bus stop.

You walk past the shops on your way to visit the temples, so it is a chance to buy a cool drink to take on your visit.

Then once you have finished at the temples, you can stop off and practice you haggling with the vendors.

Our tour group so enjoyed the haggling that they tried to sell one of the group members for 10 camels!

What to buy: You can pick up some post cards of the temples, t-shirts, magnets - all the usual souvenirs.

What to pay: Be prepared to bargain - a lot!

Directions: 5-10 minutes drive from Abu Simbel airport.
