Souk El Akel is the number one destination for foodies! It is a culinary festival where you can taste the best foods that Lebanon can offer. Lebanese food and sweets as well as international delicacies are on the menu.
Also, the chefs can get very creative there: have you ever tasted the sushi burrito?
The corniche is an interesting place to walk or to jog. Talk a stroll there and enjoy the beautiful view of the Pigeons’ Rock and the Mediterranean Sea. In the evening, the corniche is more crowded and more fun.
Also, you can find some of the most creative graffiti in the neighborhoods of Beirut. From vinyl stores to small bookshops, you never know what you might run into in the narrow alleys of the Lebanese capital.
Beirut is full of sidewalk cafes! Order a Lebanese coffee and enjoy! Not only the taste is great, but also watching passersby is a fun experience, too. Observing Beirutis is the best way to get to know the culture of Beirut.
Also, it’s a source of inspiration. The most renowned songwriters and playwrights spend their days in these cafes to get inspired by the people!
