Lebanon is gradually re-establishing itself as the 'Paris of the Middle East’. The downtown area has been completely rebuilt and is home to the most vibrant and exciting nightlife in the region with bustling cafés, lively bars and trendy nightclubs. There is something for everyone, whether it is a relaxing evening listening to music or partying the night away at a club. In Lebanon you can also enjoy abundant activity options.
The countryside is within an hour’s reach of Beirut and is quite unlike anything else that can be found in the Middle East. Rolling green hills, streams, rivers and snow-capped mountains are preserved to an extent that is rare in most developed parts of the world. The Lebanese people are friendly and the country has a wealth of attractions including a unique culture and history, and what’s more, value for money is exceptional. Lebanon is one of the world's smallest countries (180 kilometres from north to south and 50 kilometres east to west) but this makes it very easy to cover all of its major attractions within a relatively short time.
Driving from one end of the country to the other takes less than three hours and Lebanon’s varied topography certainly makes for interesting discovery with completely different geographical regions. In March and April it is often possible to ski in the mountains in the morning and then drive down to the beaches in the afternoon to bask in the sunshine. Lebanon also serves as an excellent hub from which to explore other areas of the Middle East. Damascus in Syria can be reached in just one and a half hours by road, while Amman in Jordan can take just three hours.
