About Beirut

The capital and the largest city of Lebanon, Beirut is an exotic blend of marvelous architecture and chequered history with layers of Phoenician, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, Arab crusader and Ottoman remains. Touted as 'Party capital of the Arab', the city showcases a modern and cosmopolitan culture with religiously diverse people. Conflicting religious structures lay beside each other along with streets and hotels that are a feast for gastronomists. The chic nightlife of Beirut speaks of the resolute spirit of the Beirutian celebrating life in spite of war and terror. Visit Beirut not just for the party spirit but for having an overall experience of serenity and tranquillity amidst the chaos.

Experiences

Music festivals happen mostly throughout the year, so one who is fond of concerts and festivals must book their tickets accordingly. Being a city of historical attraction, lots of antique art, jewelry, and other unique things are a must buy for people with such interests. For shopaholics, Hamra is the best place to visit. Summers are the best time to visit for beach lovers. Lots of activities, events, and parties happen during that time of the year. The most important thing is to taste Lebanese cuisine right from starters to desserts. Wine tasting in Baalbek is the perfect way to end a day trip. Teleferik is another amazing experience to do in the city to get a breathtaking view.
