Hamra street.. in these two words you can always find some top restaurants, top pubs, top recreations and top Hotels! Hamra, the crowded street, is always the best place in Lebanon where you can chill with your friends and give your day a perfect meaning ! (P.S: do not forget to try each restaurant in this street!)

Hamra is one of the oldest streets in Beirut and it has been revived lately. You can find everything from shops, clothes, pubs, restaurants... The street is multicultural as it's frequently visited by tourists and multinational university students.

This is just a normal shopping area. Since such streets and shopping areas are plenty available in my country it did not amaze me.

Hamra street is one of Lebanon's famous areas. Full of all sort of shops, cafe, and restaurant. It's very amusing to stroll there, though its not a cheap place to shop.
