Tahiti Travel Guide

Tahiti Shopping

Beirut is known as the ''fashion capital'' of the Middle East - and visitors to Lebanon who''re looking to augment their wardrobes with some stylish additions would do well to spend some time looking around the nation''s capital. Local brands specialising in haute couture include Basil Soda, Elie Saab and Pierre Katra. The best places to shop for fashion and accessories in Beirut are Hamra Street and Rue Verdun; although Mar-Elias Street is lined with stores stocked with Lebanese brands, which are generally cheaper. Organised markets in Beirut include the wonderful Souk El Tayeb, held in Saifi Village (itself a shopping hot-spot); and the Sunday Market, which operates between 7am and 1pm next to Beirut River in the east of the city. At these markets, you can expect to find everything from fresh produce to antiques, clothing and keepsakes - just be prepared to bargain vociferously for a good price.
