Overview

Beirut is the capital of Lebanon and has a estimated population of about 1.800.000 inhabitants.
The city lies on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea and at the bottom of the Lebanon Mountains.
The most popular religions in Beirut are Christians and Muslims and there is also a minority of Druze.
Beirut was one of the most exciting and flourishing cities in the region regarding trade and banking as well as a prosperous tourist centre until the outbreak of the civil war in 1975.
Unfortunately this period of fighting and devastation left the city in ruins. But by the end of the civil war in 1990 the situation established and they begun with the rebuilding of the city hoping to get back the title of the “Paris of the Middle East” once.

Overall Guide : Beside being the capital of Lebanon, Beirut is also the largest city and has an important harbor for trading. Meanwhile it turned to be an economic center with its food processing industries and other kinds of commercial business. A... more great importance is also given to the higher education, Beirut has twenty-one Universities. For future development of the city Beirut aims to host the Winter Asian Games in 2011 and the Francophonie Games in 2009. In Beirut there is a typical Mediterranean climate with wet, mild and short winters and hot, dry (more humid on the coast) and long summers. The annual rainfall average is about 700 to 1200mm.

Overall Guide : 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... more 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.

Overall Guide : 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... more hottest destination in the Middle East. Its westernised lifestyle added to the oriental culture gives you the best of both worlds!
