Tripoli Shopping: 8 reviews and 5 photos
Chahal & Sons
Beautifully set up, this shop has an extremely wide variety of spices and more that you might want to take home with you in order to make all that local food you've had on your trip. Beyond the spices they also sell perfumes. I found the staff very helpful, though not heavy on the English speaking.
What to buy: spices and perfumes
What to pay: not a lot really
Directions: close to Tell Square...in the back
Theme: Food and Drink
Located just a little bit north of the Al-Burtasiya Mosque, Souq Al-Haraj is thought to have been built on the site of a Crusader church. As far as merchandise, this souq contains a little of everything and seems more for the locals looking for everyday items.
Directions: slightly north of the Al-Burtasiya Mosque
There's gold in them there stores.
This souq is what I think is the most visually appealing in Tripoli. Selling gold and a lot of it, there are numerous shops to see or buy something at. Congested in the same area, if you stumble upon it by accident, there'd be no question if you were there.
What to buy: jewelry
What to pay: depends on what you purchase
Directions: slightly NE of the Great Mosque
Besides sweets, Tripoli is famous for it's production of soap. Dyed and perfumed in different varieties, it's worth grabbing some to take home. Prices initially start at LL1,000 per bar normally.
What to buy: soap
What to pay: depends on what you are buying
Directions: all over
Theme: Bath and Beauty
