Libya Local Customs: 20 reviews and 28 photos
Traditional bathhouses in N.Africa, so also in Libya.
There are at least three in the medina of Tripoli, male or female users have different opening hours, tourists can have a look inside after permission of the guardian, and accordingly the sex (wow!)
- Al - Heygha
- Al - Kebira
Charges are 1 LD for a steam bath, 2 LD for a massage and 5 LD for a total full scrubbing work. Very cheap and a tradition in this countries, but so different from the tradition in the northern part of Europe.
BTW : Once i had a total full scrubbing work in Istanbul/Turkey. I ran away when i saw the "masseur", my daughter Kim enjoyed it !
