Travel and Leisure (T+L) just shared the list of the top 15 cities in the world. Beirut made the list for the second time


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. T+L editors used the results to produce a top list of cities, cruise lines, food, hotels, tour operators, and much more. Readers rated cities for several characteristics including history, culture, architecture, friendliness, shopping, restaurants, modernity, antiquity, and everything in between.
