Do not be misled by the work 'souk' as this is no old souk with tiny shops. Beirut Souks is nothing but a huge mall housing all your regular premium brands but its the layout that makes it so different & unique. Its a maze of indoor & outdoor corridors that takes you from one section of the mall to... More

The old souks in the Middle East are usually the highlights of any town you visit. Full of characters and history, like those of Senaa that stretch back centuries. The old souks of central Beirut are now gone, replaced by a modern structure that is, well modern. Shades of a new museum but with "5th Ave" shopping. Horrendously expensive, with... More

Beirut souks is like a very big and open sky mall with fancy boutiques. the architecture is amazing, modern, luxurious and very beautiful. Even if you are not buying, you have to go walk around. It is a very nice place.

The name is deceiving - you expect a nice quaint place and come across another type of mall, except this one is set outside and shops are in a labyrinth of streets...there is nothing special about this place and it's just another place to shop - basically the only thing that seems to keep people busy in Beirut! There is... More

They certainly will give a run for their money to the grand bazaar of istanbul. Colorful, vibrant and cultural place in the whole of beirut. It will definetely make you wanna come back to beirut again and again.

They are much damaged after the 1975-90 Lebanese War - so there is not much left to see. The medina and souk in Sidon are much better.

These shops are extremely modern and well set out. There are many little boutique shops and a great range of goods. A contrast to other parts of the city that are older or still shows signs of the fighting and the war. There is a building out the back of the shops that you can still see the bullet holes... More
