Welcome to Lebanon!
Lebanon is known to be “the Switzerland of the Middle East”. Before being like anything and anyone, it is unique. Lebanon’s friendly people will take you by surprise with their warmth and willingness to help and extend friendship. The land is endowed with a rich heritage of multi-religious historical sites as well as multi-cultural legacy. Whether you choose to go North, South, West or East you will be greeted with diversity. There is a lot to see starting with Historical sites, nature’s wonders’, valleys of saints, museums, as well as traces of wars and martyrs which meant to scar our land but to no avail. You will witness the ever stubborn spirit of our people to live in the constant daily renewal of the Phoenix which bestowed its name on our ancestors the Phoenicians. You can join the hype of night life’s scenes, the myriad tasteful restaurants, snacks, fruit juice bars, refined pastries and others all at different budgets catering to every taste. Whether you appreciate ancient historical excavations and temples, or like big malls, movie theatres, artistic festivals, art exhibits or architectural art, clubs, pubs, or just pure nature adventures and sports you’re in for a quick bumpy ride!
Our Mediterranean climate is mild. We have wet winters with hot, dry summers; Lebanon mountains experience heavy winter snows that kind of stay until Spring time, depending on its frequency. Have you heard that around April/May, you can both go to ski then go to the beach?
