Chahal & Sons - Tripoli

Chahal & Sons

Chahal Herboriste: Fragrances abound

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

Souq Al-Haraj: A little bit of everything...

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. - Tripoli

There's gold in them there stores.

Souq as-Sayyaghin: All that glitters...

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

Theme: Jewelry

Soap!!: So fresh and so clean, clean, clean...

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
