Condé Nast Traveler, an American travel magazine, released the list of the top 15 friendliest cities in the world, and among them is Beirut! The readers of the magazine filled a survey which was about their experiences with the locals of the countries they have visited. Apparently, Beirut is the 9
friendliest city in the world! This is what one participant said about our beloved city:
“Despite the political turbulence, it’s always been the land of rich culture, heritage, history, art, nature & hospitable warm locals,” says one astute reader. “Behind every tired sinking sun, is the rise of the Phoenix. Similarly, the love-of-life spirit of the Lebanese people… gives this beautiful city an incomparable lively soul.”
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.
