I took a round for couple of hours around the place, the mall is a piece of art, clean, oriental including the House of Parliament too. Shops are all over the place, all international brands are there, prices are too high for sure, but fashionable. Cars are not allowed to go in which increases the leisure of walking around. Lots...

This place is empty. Nobody lives in the renovated buildings. Restaurants are overpriced. It's a good place for tourists to visit once but Beirut has a lot more to offer.

Beirut down town is relatively new, or mainly renewed. the feeling of the old city is still there with clean buildings, nice restaurants, chic souks and boutiques... Solidere is about all this and it's a must see area.

This was a central war zone when the war was on in Lebanon , it was like an abandoned tip afterwards for a few years , then they built it up from the ashes again. They have replicated every original building almost exactly as it was , Its an amazing feat and its beautiful now , better than before. There... More

It's the Central District of Beirut.. It becomes less vital in the last few years... Especially the Etoile place... But the other sides are more vibrant especially Beirut Souks toward Zaitounay Bay... it worth a visit.. many coffee shops & restaurants are available to welcome you... many brand shops to buy from such as Chanel, Louis Vuitton, etc...

One of the newly constructed places in Beirut. Very nice and clean. We visited during Christmas and the decoration with all the lights were just amazing. We sat in many cafes and enjoyed the place. It's one of my favorite spots in Beirut.

A small city within Beirut, very aesthetically pleasing and full of restaurants and shopping centers. Well worth visiting.

Eating at the Solidere and surrounding areas gives you a sense of the new Beirut but keeps teh charm and culture that entices you back.

From the ashes of civil war destruction to a beautiful and extensive restoration, transforming this area into a shopping area and social center that mixes residents and visitors of various religious faiths -- as long as they have money.

Torn by years of war, and totally destroyed, the downtown area of Beirut was magically rebuilt by late Prime Minister Hariri in few years to put Beirut back on the map of must see destinations. A place that can challenge the best cities of the world.
