Rising star of the Middle East
While it may not be an obvious choice for a holiday destination, Beirut has far more to offer than you might think. The Lebanese capital’s war scars have healed impressively, leaving a dynamic city waiting to welcome you with open arms.
The hospitality of the locals is just one shining quality of this up and coming star. While bullet-battered buildings are still in evidence along the city’s former Green Line, stunning feats of architecture like the blue-domed Mohammed al-Amin Mosque, are also waiting to wow you. Take in spectacular views of the shimmering Mediterranean Sea as you stroll along the Corniche. Discover the city’s thriving art scene at abundant galleries. Stop off at a glossy designer boutique or charming independent store. Then after a feast of traditional Middle Eastern meze, down a ‘dou dou’ shot at a rooftop bar with breathtaking vistas of the surrounding mountains.
