    Worth checking out, even if the prices are higher than elsewhere in the town. Several well known restaurants with large outdoor seating areas.

    Stunning Mosque inside and out, amazing feel. Heard the azaan and its juts beautiful. Security before you in but nice staff ready to help.

    The Church next to the Mosque is just an amazing view to see.

    Not spectacular or wow, but definitely worth a look.

    As you walk along the Corniche, this crops up and is worth a pic or two.

    I absolutely love the American University of Beirut! The students, staff and faculty are so welcoming and representative of the people of Lebanon—hard working, positive, and looking to make positive changes in the world. I’m so impressed at how many people passionately working on making a difference with digital accessibility and inclusion within AUB and the country as a whole! The AUB Accessibility for a Bolder Learning Experience (ABLE) Summit is an amazing celebration of knowledge and advocacy for people with disabilities. It’s refreshing to see the genuine care that AUB stakeholders possess for others, despite any crises going on the last three years.

    On top of the amazing things that AUB is doing, the campus is amazing with hundreds of varieties of trees from all over the world adding to the character of this campus. If you’re in Beirut, you must pay a visit to the AUB campus.

    Stayed in a hostel in this area, very chic neighborhood filled with many restaurants and bars. Walking distance from the new large mosque built in Lebanon. Highly recommend spending a night here with friends

    This is the main part of Beirut if you are looking for food and entertainment (pubs etc). There are also a lot of accommodations in this part of town and it is also pretty near the sea.

    The Beirut Corniche is probably one of most beautiful promenades if you want to make a long and relaxing walk. Starting at the Zaytunay Bay this promenade stretches out for several km's with some nice view points such as the pigeon rocks. Even during the cooler winter-month of december people love to stroll along this open area. We were lucky with the weather so for us it felt more or less like spring. Most enjoyable to watch the fishermen at the shore. Even when the evening falls there are still lots of people gathering together. There are a lot of new buildings but now and then you can find some older buildings in between which gives the environment a typical feeling.

    This church will surprise you in many ways. It's an eighteenth century church that was built on top of a much earlier one from the 4th century. The much older church had been forgotten for hundreds of years, but a bombardment that took place during the Lebanese civil war (1975-1990) unveiled the ancient church when a bomb bore a hole through the newer church's floor. It is possible to visit the older church during the day through a separate entrance to the left of the newer church's m

    Solidere is the company behind the rebuilding of downtown Beirut. Look them or loathe them, Solidere is transforming Beirut. Sometimes the new core seems soulless and designed for wealthy gulf emirs. But the shops, restaurants, architecture, housing all make for a brilliant urban core where there was once desolation. It will be interesting to see how this plays out over the next few decades.

    As someone who is broke and has always pushed for more social equality, I have to say, I LOVE what BDL has done.

    Young, old, married, single, muslim, christian... We’re all gonna be broke! We’ll all have the same income: 0. Isn’t that great?! There’s no wealth inequality if everyone’s poor, right? Ladies, there’s no wage gap if no one has any money either, am I right?

    Finally, we can all be equal. Riad Salamé is a true social justice hero.

    I f you go to Beirut you will for sure visit the pigeon rocks - also called Rouche rocks. Enjoy a coffee at the terasse with a marvellous view on the rocks but as well go down (there is a small path downhill) to the seaside and get another view on the rocks from already behind, combined with the Beirut Skyline.
