The “Paris of the Middle-East”

For a true East meets West experience, Beirut fits the profile very well. It’s a cultural haven, which is fast-paced, exciting, and even chaotic at times, which is all part of its famed charm.

The people are overwhelmingly friendly and fashion-conscious, and everyone is simply always on the go. So there’s plenty of excitement, lots of things to do, and definitely never a dull moment.

The mostly pedestrianized Beirut Central District is the core of this truly cosmopolitan city.  The district is a cluster of stone-façade buildings lining arcaded streets and radial alleyways, and includes many shops, hotels, and Beirut souks.

Enjoy the abundance of delicious Lebanese culinary experiences as simple as a “man’ousheh” (dough topped with zaatar(thyme), cheese etc.) or a Falafel or Shawarma wrap, to a full-blown Lebanese feast, including “mezze” and other delightful treats. Beirut offers visitors many different restaurants, bars, and night clubs to choose from and you can be sure to enjoy the famous Lebanese flair for service in any of them.
