Great for shopping but do not expect a lot of Lebanese brands, the design of the market is modern and beautiful; relaxing area with a great selection of the international brands, spacious shops, clean and very well maintained. Prices range but on the expensive side... a few cafes are available and a huge amazing supermarket that offer everything including meals.

Like everyone is there - all the top lines from America and Europe with huge stores full of luxury goods - very good architecture that conforms to the cultural norms

A nice place but dull. The only thing to do here basically is either shopping from specific brands, or cinema. Most of the restaurants unfortunately have closed.

If you expect to visit the old souks, with a local flavour you will be highly disappointed. You are going to see a large shopping area with some nice spots to sit and eat...but no soul!

Fun, lots of shops and food. Nice mix of people and things to do. Central to downtown and many other sites.

Old souks they are not. All new Hugh end mall near center of rebuild Beirut. Plenty of high end shops but not too many people around. Some restaurants but nothing great. Good jewelry shops.

Shopping in Beirut is really expensive. Lebanon Lira contains 000 but dont get fooled with this. Everything is expensive and prices are much higher than I expected. Nothing special to seen. If you have time and money you can visit jewelry and watch shops
