    The District of Hamra is always very lively, especially the Hamra Street, there are a number of shops, restaurants and other venues, here you meet on tourists and locals who like shopping, you will certainly find it, also in the evening one can as a woman easily and dare sure alone here, the people are very friendly and generally, the quarter is probably an image of typical Beirut city life full of zest for life and a bit the soul of the city.
