Whether shopping or eating the Souk is clearly aimed at tourists rather than locals but remains well worth a small visit/walk through when you're passing whether you want to eat or shop.

This place must be the ending of Byblos tourism, at a time the music begins... Someone can walk and make shopping to buy gifts and souvenirs, and then have a seat to drink or eat something and enjoy the night life of Byblos and Lebanon.

Cute place to see and stroll many shops and cafés. Offers cover from the strong and powerful sun all while enjoying a shisha and mezzes.

If it is your first visit to Lebanon, bear in mind that you MUST visit Jbeil's (or Byblos) Old Souk. In fact, besides the exsitence of thousands of vibrant shops where you can find different kinds of souvenirs, this Souk reflects the true Lebanese spirit...More

The Old Souk in Byblos is basically a series of souvenir shops in several narrow streets. It looks okay at first glance but it is rather tacky really. Definitely not a thriving Arab Souk you would be hoping for.

The old souk has a great architecture spoiled by the congested pubs/bars and stores selling Chinese products, you feel the place is too commercial and wish they make the stores sell Lebanese traditional products instead of the current ones. There are no facilities or toilette's...More

For an "old souk" it sucks. There are two or three tiny streets filled with bars and stores selling trinkets. Nothing original, locally made, or culturally relevant

Except for 'Memoire the temps' (Fossile museum and shop) nothing special to see. Some souvenir shops, some bars and cafes.
