Book your holiday to Beirut with Wendy Wu Tours
Lebanon’s capital Beirut enjoys a spectacular setting nestled between the Mediterranean and the slopes of Mount Lebanon.
Energetic, bustling and chic, it perfectly balances the liberal airs of the West with the sensibilities of the Middle East. With a vibrant waterfront, characterful neighbourhoods and maze-like streets packed with shops and bars offering a taste of the city’s modern life, the downtown area is dominated by old colonial and Islamic architecture set side by side on atmospheric streets that still bear the scars of a long-finished civil war.
