Beirut Flights Guide
This capital city of the country of Lebanon is also its largest city, with an estimated population of between one and two million residents (there is not current census from the past five years). Beirut is home to many iconic landmarks, museums, a thriving nightlife, and other cultural benchmarks including the National Museum of Beirut, the historic Sursock Museum, and the Grand Serail, which is Beirut’s government palace and where the Prime Minister lives.
Just a few of Beirut’s other historic and cultural attractions are: the Robert Mouawad Private Museum that has exhibits of the private collection of art and archaeology from Henri Pharaon; Planet Discovery is great for families, as it is an interactive children’s science museum; the Museum of Lebanese Prehistory displays Neolithic pottery, bones and other relics that was collected by Jesuits during Ancient Lebanese eras. Beirut is known as the “party capital of the Arab world” and has some of the Middle East’s most exclusive bars and a hopping nightlife which includes the extremely popular 6th Street (which features a large front porch for enjoying drinks while getting some fresh air), as well as Akos Lounge; this pub is located on the 10th floor of a large building and is an intimate place for a romantic dinner or a nightcap.
Be sure to sample some of the city’s cuisine at one of Beirut’s many excellent restaurants; for authentic Lebanese cuisine, make reservations at Abu Naim and try the hummus and lamb filet. For after dinner drinks or a nightcap, visit the Cru Wine Bar, a quaint French venue where you can enjoy a glass of Lebanese wine with a delicious steak. If you’re looking for a change of cuisine, try some authentic Mediterranean dishes at Secteur 75; this restaurant has a stunning interior—check out the crystal chandeliers—and a creative menu that includes mushroom risotto and their famous champignons des Dieux appetizer.
Getting around Beirut is fairly easy, as there are several different modes of transportation, including buses, taxis, the Port of Beirut (used mostly for commercial ships), and the Rafic Hariri International Airport.
