Around Town with Your Mom

Mothers are so precious we need to show them our appreciation! Adventures in Lebanon Team would like to invite your mothers to spend an unforgettable mother’s day, free of charge, on Saturday March 19th.

The trip will begin with a visit to one of the marvelous wineries: “Chateau Musar” where we will be coached on wine techniques and taste some of their best selections. Then they will then be heading to Tripoli, the second largest city in Lebanon, located in the northern part of Lebanon and 80 km away from Beirut, to visit the famous old souk or bazaar, the Khan El-saboun (The soap market), and the historical Hammam.

At the Souk, your mothers will surely enjoy shopping for home made essences, hand crafts, antiques, jewelry, clothes…the most incredible items at the cheapest prices can be found in that souk. The trip will then continue to discover the process of soap making in one of the most famous soap producing houses in Tripoli, discover all the natural necessary needed mixture in order to have a finished and traditional homemade Lebanese soap, the skin-friendly enriched with natural perfumes soap that became a must-have item for use and for our bathrooms ornaments.

Third stop will be at Tripoli’s traditional Hammam (also known as the Turkish bath), dated about 800 years old back from the Ottoman occupation period – It occupies an area of 500 m2 and still has the typical pierced domes of the Mamalik and Ottoman Era public baths. The interior, with its cushions, central fountain and traditional original fittings, is a living museum. Finally we will conclude our journey with a Lebanese typical lunch (fatteh/ hommos/ balila..) before we head back to Beirut.
