Think You Know Lebanon? Think Again…

Image
Posted on 21/11/2015 Lebanon is currently described as one of the most dangerous countries in the world (according to the U.S), this is total and utter rubbish! The country has been hit hard by the Syrian war with tourism nose-diving, but in fact now is the perfect time to visit! Thankfully I discovered a warm, welcoming community who were just thankful to see a tourist.

Why Visit? Here’s my top five reasons to visit Lebanon:
Amazing, tasty food – you’ll never go hungryIncredibly warm and welcoming people who can fluently speak Arabic, French and EnglishVery few tourists, it’s highly likely you’ll have the place to yourself and be the only one at historical sitesUnlike any other Middle Eastern country, Lebanon produces wine and beer and has its own unique cultureEven with all the warnings, I found Lebanon to be a safe place to visit and exploreWhat Is There To See In Lebanon? Where do I even begin? This small Middle Eastern country sure packs a huge amount of adventure in to a sma…

BEIRUT: An intimate crowd gathered to celebrate the official opening of Popolo, a charming Italian restaurant where you can eat lightly fried cheese truffle balls with mushroom any time of the day, or order a crispy cotoletta alla Milanese with a side of creamy truffle fries. Located in Ain al-Mreisseh with a view of the Mediterranean, the decor is a soft palette of red, heather gray and baby blue with wooden accents. There is no music to be heard, except for the faintest sound of waves crashing in the background. Impressive slivers of homemade tagliatelle are laid out to dry on a wooden rack, while cured meats dangle in the background like chandeliers suspended from the ceiling. Popolo by definition means people in Italian. The menu is homely, even comforting at times, and so is the concept: Food brings people together. “When we thought of Popolo’s concept, we didn’t want to open a high-end restaurant where people wo…

BEIRUT: The eighth-annual Vinifest, an extravaganza of local wines and performances, will occupy Beirut Hippodrome Oct. 7-10. At a press conference at La Table D’Alfred on Sursock Street, Ashrafieh last week, Neda Farah, founder and director-general of event management company Eventions, spoke briefly about this year’s theme of wine and tasting, and eagerly introduced Russia as the festival’s guest of honor. In a speech, Zafer Chaoui, president of Lebanon’s official wine association, the Union Vinicole du Liban, and chairman of Château Ksara, said that “wine is our national pride and its reputation has been established beyond the shadow of doubt.” Chaoui implored the citizens of Lebanon and the owners of restaurants to be proud of Lebanese wine and to purchase it instead of imported wines, many of which can be of lesser quality, yet more expensive.
