The best traditional souk in Lebanon! The prices are super low even if you don’t bargain! The people at the shops are super kind and helpful and most if them speak English! Of course like in all other souks you have to be careful about your personal stuff since the place is very crowded. Overall, our experience at Tripoli was amazing!

Roaming the streets of the Souks... Lots of market stalls and shops but there is a section specifically for Gold. Lots of great craftsmen and plenty of shops to choose from. Be careful if they know your from overseas (and they will if you can't disguise your voice) prices jump up sharply.

The souk also has other attractions around it.

This is the ideal place to buy your lunch and snacks in Tripoli. Good food, and freshly bakes. Also nice for some souvenirs, even if not touristy.

This souk dates back to the 14th Century, and is Tripoli's only covered souk. The high vaulted roof is beautiful - and they think dates back to Roman or Crusader structures. It's wonderful to simply amble around and take in the various activities, trades and wares on display. Excellent quality spices to be found here, if you want a culinary reminder of Lebanon.

Lot of shops, small, narrow old streets, where you can find almost everything. But be careful, it is easy to lost the way. Worth to find soap court, with magnificent, hand-made soaps in different colours and shapes, soaps looks-like fruits, toys, jewellery, smell exellent. Buy fantastic, extraordinary souvenir. At all, nice place to spend some time in exellent environment. And, necesserily, drink a street coffee.

Our taxi driver for the day took us to the old souk and guided us through the narrow streets. This is a place where you can get almost everything you need, and also lots of things no one need at all. Crowded with all types of people, but a very friendly atmosphere.

This market place was full of people of all walks of life.
It was nice to walk through and browse through all that was being sold, the old down side is the constant haggling you get from the shop owners while walking through the streets.

What an experience it is to visit a traditional souk like this. Locals all over the place going around their shopping, from clothing to spices to gold. And gold is relatively less expensive than in other markets in the Middle East. It is not very big although it can be chaotic at times. There are also street food available - I liked the traditional Lebanese bread with cheese. Very safe, people are friendly.

This bustling souk which sells all sort of stuff is frequented more by locals than tourists. So if you are interested in visiting a traditional old souk for an authentic experience this Souk is well worth a visit .

f you do not speak the language it would be very difficult to haggle and negotiate a price- so you may not be able to do much of shopping here. However do go for the atmosphere, noise, smells.
