In a small paragraph concerning Beirut’s celebration, Nat Geo wrote:
“Each New Year brings a promise of peace in the capital of formerly war-torn Lebanon. Thousands gather to watch the light show on the city’s 1933 art deco clock tower in Nejmeh Square, the heart of central Beirut. At midnight, couples kiss and fireworks burst, shining over a mix of floodlit church steeples and mosque minarets in this eclectic Levantine metropolis.”
The article is updated each year with the new cities that ranked on their top 10 list.
