Given the past weekend’s highly unusual drop in temperature, some of us here in Lebanon are dreaming about the warmer months ahead, and for good reason!
Lebanon has always held a special place in the hearts of many for the diversity of culture and activity it offers, all condensed into an easily accessible package. No matter the “vibe” you are chasing for this year’s summer, here are a few reasons why Lebanon makes the best of the season.
Lebanon’s food scene is known around the world because of how tasty it is. There are so many options, whether you’re itching for a late-night snack from the streets or a fine dining experience.
Of course, the traditional Lebanese cuisine including mezza and various grilled items is a classic and delicious choice. But Lebanon also offers a taste of the world with its delicious international offerings.
One needs only to do a little homework to find what will “hit the spot.”
This is an aspect of Lebanon that doesn’t seem to occur quite the same anywhere else. If you’re lost in an unfamiliar neighborhood, there’s always someone around the corner who’s more than willing to help you find your way. Restaurant and hotel staff are always eager to please, whether it’s a 2-star place or a 5-star one.
The man’oush shop on the corner might memorize your favorite order after the first couple of visits. Your neighbor enjoys inviting you in for an afternoon coffee and chat. It’s unparalleled how hospitable the Lebanese are.
Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources.
