This souk dates back to the 14th Century, and is Tripoli's only covered souk. The high vaulted roof is beautiful - and they think dates back to Roman or Crusader structures. It's wonderful to simply amble around and take in the various activities, trades and...More

Our taxi driver for the day took us to the old souk and guided us through the narrow streets. This is a place where you can get almost everything you need, and also lots of things no one need at all. Crowded with all types...More

This market place was full of people of all walks of life. It was nice to walk through and browse through all that was being sold, the old down side is the constant haggling you get from the shop owners while walking through the streets.

Energetic, colourful and a wonderful place to catch the action- this souk is a nice place to hang out and mingle with the friendly locals. Free to walk around of course and no need to feel intimidated.

Visiting the souks in Lebanon is great as you really get a taste of the local culture and the area. By far the souks in Tripoli have been the most different. They are manic to say the least and are not directed at tourists. They...More
