Not a place for tourist, but excellent for people who plan to stay in Beirut for a bit longer. No souvenirs, no antiques, just a place for local people to buy cheap, common things. Clothes, tools etc.

This is not a common shopping destination nor a touristic one. Souk Al Ahad (meaning the sunday's market) is an old cheap market that sells old stuff to people. No Lebanese people go there and it should be omitted from TripAdvisor's list of shopping destinations....More

Doesn't have it's place in TripAdvisor lists. It's Not a shopping mall or Bazaar or touristic place to visit. They sell very old and used stuff. Very dirty place to avoid. When you visit a new country, sometimes you visit strange places to discover the...More
