Libya has a number of fantastic shopping opportunities, particularly for visitors wishing to buy traditional ware and exquisite jewellery. Some western brand name stores, such as Mango, and Marks and Spencer, can be found in Tripoli however the best place to shop for clothes bargains is around the Green Square. Gargarish road is popular with residents and tourists wishing to buy cloth, furniture items and electronics equipment. But perhaps the best place to shop is at the Bazaars. Not only are the main Bazaars, Al-Mushier and Al-Turk, great places to shop for clothes, textiles, jewellery and curios, but they also offer a range of picturesque photo opportunities that anyone visiting Libya would not want to miss.
