I thought that I was going to visit the old part of Beirut, but I foind that it's very modern area for luxury and mid range brands shopping.

Forget to thought as an old one. It's a modern chic and beautiful distributed shopping center. Like others you can find in Berlin, NY or Milan.

The shops were beyond good, owners are so friendly, the cinema was amazing, and the parks outside there were comfortable to rest in, I had an Iftar in the mosque near it and I liked it.

Souks? I thought. Little market stalls selling jewellery, and pottery, and scarves, and local embroidery etc etc etc... Not a chance. This is simply a mall with the likes of H&M and other familiar shops. I you like malls, this is the place for you. If you like quaint markets with locally-made goods, don't bother.

If you are in a tight budget, this place is nice to you for hanging out and seeing a modern and classy lifestyle for some locals and tourists. But if enjoy a wealthy budget, your joy will be doubled at this fancy place where everything is original and looks gorgeous.

What a nostalgia for the old souk that had all the flavor and traditions of a Beirut of other times!!! The present one is just a modern mall, even a supermarket and....pity for history!

I was expecting an old-fashioned Arabic Souq but instead got a series of malls with upmarket designer brands. Not for your average Beirut citizen. You could be anywhere in the world with no connection to Lebanon. On a positive note, a good multiplex cinema is part of the complex.

Beirut Souks is the right place to spend great time... it includes big brands for shopping lovers, restaurant and movie theatres... it's an outdoor mall whereby you can enjoy the walk as well...The souk is close to many hotels in beirut area .

From fancy brands to low cost brands, you can find it all. Nice design and easy flow, can easily spend the day there! A few cafes and restaurants are around along with a supermarket if you need anything to buy. A cinema and an arcade are around too... family enjoyment at its best
