In general, Beirut is beautiful. Of course every city has its ups and downs and Beirut is one of them. you could categorize Beirut into a still "developing" city but there are endless fun things to do. The nightlife in my opinion is the best, comparing to any other city in the middle east. The names of night clubs never seem to end, during the day you have your beach parties which are must while staying in Beirut and you could enjoy your night by having a nice calm dinner or meeting up with some friends for a drink at the bar or even go to a nightclub. Either way Beirut is just amazing.
Beirut nightlife!! Especially during summer season when it's booming .. You wouldn't want to miss it for the world!!!! Although the region is in constant turmoil, Beirut is still a safe place to be in and is by far the hottest destination in the Middle East. Its westernised lifestyle added to the oriental culture gives you the best of both worlds!

The best place to spend a vacation, you could spend your day sight seing in one of the amaizing ruins or nature reserves. And spend your evening in a cafe, and your night in one of the bars or beach parties
