Souq al Ahad Sunday Market

Weekends see the Souq al Ahad fill up with vendors selling all manner of goods, from books to knick knacks and original antiques, most sold at prices that are simply unbeatable.


Shopping is a blast in Beirut, although do not expect much in the way of an oriental marketplace: the Beirut Souks are a polished shopping complex with dining and entertainment, and luxury department stores like Aïshti see moneyed shoppers from Beirut and outside come through their doors. Local products worth buying include art and handicrafts produced by Lebanese artisans (fabrics, ceramics, metalwork and more).
