Lebanon Traveler - - A DAY WITH -

Once full of Ham­mams only a few now re­main in Sidon, but they are still the per­fect place to while away the hours relaxingly, af­ter an ex­plo­ration of the bustling souk. The care­fully re­stored Ham­mam elSheikh fea­tures an im­pres­sive high dome ceil­ing, while 18th Cen­tury Al Ward Ham­mam is Mediter­ranean in style. One of the finest ex­am­ples of 13th Cen­tury ar­chi­tec­ture, Omari Mosque, set within Sidon’s Souk, is def­i­nitely worth a visit. And don't miss Khan el Franj (Car­a­vanserai of the French), an im­pres­sive 17th Cen­tury struc­ture built by Emir Fakhred­dine for French mer­chants.
