  • WEAR comfortable sturdy shoes for a walk around the old town and the souks.
  • WOMEN should be prepared with head scarves if they wish to visit mosques.
  • WHEN shopping in the old souks or downtown area, remember that gold is a good buy.
  • A total of 45 buildings in Tripoli, many dating back to the 14th century CE, are registered as historical sites although at least 200 are present.
  • IT is our wish that the registration of all historical monuments of Tripoli is to be achieved soon by the Lebanese Ministries of Tourism and Culture in order to save most of these monuments from erosion and intended destruction.
  • EFFORTS are also put to make UNESCO announce Tripoli as a 'Protected Historical City'. Some major monuments, such as the Mansouri Great Mosque, Taynal Mosque, Sayyagheen (Jewellers') Bazaar, Tripoli Clock Tower, Madrassah AlSaqraqiyyah, and AlKhayyateen Caravansary have been restored recently.
