water pipes, rugs, oriental lamps, shirts in different lengths
with embroidery, backgammon games, silver jewellery, etc
Great buys are the usual Egyptian suspects; water pipes, rugs, oriental lamps, shirts
different lengths with embroidery, backgammon games, silver jewellery, etc. Prices
for tourists, so haggling is a must. Pay 50-60% of the first price offered, anything
else is a
rip-off. If you are not sure about the price, go to the next shop, they all offer
more or less
the same stuff, and start bargaining again there.
Look out for Bedouin handcrafts, some beautiful pieces are available. Hand embroidered and made in Dahab, Saint Catherine and El Arish by Bedouin women. Sheikh Salem House has a good selection of items as does some of the other Bedouin establishments in Dahab.
The Dahab Community Market is a weekly event for everyone. It is held every
at the Sheikh Salem House in the Eel Garden Area.
The market starts at 3PM and finishes between 7 - 8PM. There are different vendors every week and regular wares include handmade Bedouin and Egyptian crafts, jewelry, clothes, secondhand bargains and food from around the world — including homemade Egyptian Food, delicious cakes and deserts
