We really enjoyed just walking around Harma Street and exploring all the cafes and shops. The street is homely and cozy and the people extremely friendly. Must do in Beirut

Nothing much to see - it's a busy street and it looks ran down. Maybe in the past it was good but I just thought it was nothing special.

This is an old shopping street in Beirut, used to be a lot more posh, now it is very busy and polluted, you find all kind of brands... still must come once if you are visiting Beirut.

I changed U.S and AUD. Check hotel for rates. I found the local shops do better rates. I changed money in a mobile phone shop and jewelers and they were very good rates.
