A charmingly small nation that keeps one foot in the Arab world to the east, and one planted firmly in the west. Still a turbulent location, with most UN nations recommending visitors stay away, the truth is that the recent civil war has been over for a long time, although there is still some danger from extremists. Visiting the so-called 'Paris of the Middle East', Beirut, will almost always be a rewarding and safe experience that almost three million visitors per year have already discovered. The country is filled with historical sites, from Stone Age and Phoenician remains, to Roman temples, Crusader Castles and Ottoman bathhouses. Lebanese cuisine has become prized the world over, and the country offers everything from sun-drenched Mediterranean beaches to mountain ski resorts to popular camping, hiking and cycling destinations, like the Al Shouf Cedar Nature Reserve, Nahr Ibrahim and Ramlieh.
The City of Beirut - Regarded as the most amazing and beautiful city in the Middle East, and voted ahead of Dubai and Tel Aviv by several travel publications, Lebanon's capital city has long been among the world's favourite destinations. Astonishingly friendly, yet also fast-paced, fashion-conscious and chaotic, Beruit offers a magnificent array of museums, restaurants, bars, clubs and places to stay. The small size of Lebanon, and Beirut's central coastal location, means that the city is an ideal spot from which to explore the rest of the land, so it has all the facilities that discerning visitors could want. The Corniche Beirut is three-mile pedestrian promenade that takes in the sea views over giant white limestone cliffs, all the way from Saint George Bay in the north to Avenue de Paris in the south. The Beirut Central District is the premier spot for visiting tourists, with stone-faced buildings from the Ottoman and Roman era hiding dozens of shops, bars, cafés, pubs and restaurants amongst the Beirut Souks, all backed by the high-rise hotels and towers that line the New Waterfront marina.
Old Towns - Up and down the coastline of Lebanon sit dozens of ancient towns and cities, with architecture untouched by time. Tripoli, Batroun, Sidon and Tyre are amongst the most popular with foreign visitors.
