An interesting area to visit

This is an interesting and historical area to visit when in Tripoli. It is however like the rest of the city very messy and dirty.

I usually visit the port because it is surrounded by amazing food and shisha places. The port itself has a lot of potentials but it needs a lot of work.

Nice stroll along the sea shore, bike, jog, or watch the sunset. People watch, eat street food, make friends with locals etc...
