First time to the Souks, it was a great place to dine then shop. We arrived just before sunset, so we got to see it in the day and night. This area was demolished during the war and rebuilt as it was before. You definitely feel like you were in Beirut 50+ years ago. Recommended!!!

Beirut souks is the optimal space for shopping in beirut.

While visiting Beirut, don't forget to visit the Beirut Souks to have taste of the old souks mixed in a modern structure. Enjoy a lunch or a dinner in one of the nice restaurants over there.....

Enjoyed a leisurely walk through the souk along the waterfront outside of Beirut. The souks adjoin a small marina. Souk includes a variety of shops and restaurants.
