This is Beirut's best and most consistent art-house cinema, and it screens a lot of Lebanese and regional indie films, as well as classics. In the month I was in Beirut, I saw several great films here that really fleshed out my understanding of local history and culture. Plus, it's just a groovy cinema, with cool mod furniture in the ...Popular withDesignLocal

This guided walking tour starts in Hamra and goes across Solidere/Downtown and ends at Martyrs Square. I thought it was a great way to get the lay of the land, and see the major landmarks. Our guide (I think the main guy) was excellent--really detailed knowledge of history, and willing to answer any question. He covered the civil war (the ...Popular withHistoryStudentsLocal

And such a nice group of people--almost all Lebanese. ...Popular withOutdoorBackpackers

This museum has been nicely restored after the civil war, and in fact has a small exhibit about how the artifacts and the building were preserved. The actual collection is a manageable size, with a lot of Phoenician relics. It gives a good overview of the various ancient cultures and powers in Lebanon.Popular withHistoryDesign

The calm, easy to navigate-in Beirut airport is always when I feel that my trip has commenced. The duty-free zone is quite large and offers a multitude of stores such as Alcohol, snacks, Electronics, Virgin, pistachios, a bank,... the cafe at the first floor has also delicious cold sandwiches and salads to boost your energy for your trip. The Cedar ...
