Beirut Ranked Among the Best Cities in the World By Travellers

Beirut was ranked by travelers to be among the top cities in the world on Travel & Leisure for 2016. Just last month, we covered how Beirut was ranked first place for the “Best International City for Food” in 2016.

This is part of the World’s Best Awards and is put together following a collection of experiences, opinions and surveys from the websites’ readers – which average around 6 million a month.

They then use the results to produce a top list of cities, islands,  cruise lines, airlines, food and much more.

Readers rated cities for several qualities, history, culture, exciting cuisine, modernity, antiquity, and everything in between. Beirut was highlighted by the site featuring a comment by Travel and Leisure reader Maya Elchebeir:
