    A week after the visit of the souk of Byblos (Jbeil), here us at Sidon: it's less clean, but so much more "real". The lanes are very small, there is everything, there are the colors, smells, a true souk what! We found a seller of cedar, and especially flower honey orange blossom... UM... Initially, we were looking for the David SOAP. We stumbled on it "by chance", in one of the narrow streets of the souk! So, open your eyes! We were there in early August, and it is closed for two months for repairs (a very kind gentleman at the entrance let us...). It's really very nice.

    Personally I like to walk in the old streets. You can find many stuff including handmade products and artifacts.  more »

    Place frozen in time somewhere in the past and present where people are not shopping fast and muezzin creating new songs.  more »
