Visitors to Tripoli can stroll in the bustling bazaars, shopping for holiday souveniers and trinkets as well as beautiful textiles and exquisite jewellery. Tourists are spoilt for choice when it comes to the amazing sights in and around the city, from the Red Castle to the Gurgi and Karamanli Mosques Tripoli is overflowing with places to discover and sights to behold.

Information & Facts

Language

The official language of Libya is Arabic (used for all official business), though some English is spoken, especially in the cities and tourist-orientated establishments.

Money

The official currency is the Dinar (LYD), which is divided into 1, 000 dirhams. Credit cards have very limited acceptance (usually only in five-star hotels) and travellers cheques are not accepted, therefore it is advised to carry cash. ATMs are unreliable, though available in Tripoli. Banks are usually closed on Thursdays and Fridays. Currency can be exchanged at the airport or any bank in Tripoli.

Shopping

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.
