The City of Contrasts
Beirut is not for everyone. It’s like a cup of strong black coffee. It wakes you up and fills you up with energy enough to conquer the world. There is a dialogue in the movie Rocky Balboa, it goes something like this, “But it ain't about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!” This dialogue defines what Beirut is, a city that can constantly get hit and still move forward. The city is a winner in terms of its capability to take pain and misery and convert it in to sheer joy. Even after such a catastrophic past, Beirut is all for smiles. Nothing in the city gives away the horror that it has experienced. The buildings are tall and proud, and so are the people. Get on a cheap flight to Beirut and explore a city that refuses to give up and smile in the face of adversity.

A modern tall building standing opposite a traditional short one. The designs are simple, minimalistic, and genius. Though the city would have been quite aesthetic even without the sea that surrounds it on the west, the ink blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea adds onto the beauty of Beirut.

Corniche, Beirut - One of the most romantic attractions in the city, Corniche attracts young and old alike. This is the only place in the city where you can find a respite from the high octane city life. On one side lies the incredible Mediterranean Sea with its calm serene waters and on the other lies the beautiful city of contrasts. While walking along Corniche you will come across the Pigeon Rock. A natural rock structure born out of geological eruption stands erect barely 10 minutes from Corniche. The Pigeon Rock also has a natural arch and has been an object of wonder and awe for people from all over the world. If you love fishing, bring a fishing rod along. You can throw a line down from the railings and wait for some Mediterranean fish. The best part about fishing here is not the view but the companions you will find. A lot of locals come here to fish and they can share some amazing stories about the city. We’d recommend booking a hotel near Corniche to be greeted by the refreshing Mediterranean wind every morning.
Mazaar Ski Resort - Near the villages of Faraya and Kfardebian, approximately an hour’s drive from Beirut, are snow clad mountains. A rare site in the Middle-East, these mountains rise to almost 3000 meters in elevation. The rugged white soft snow spreading for over 50 miles are some of the best ski slopes in the whole of Middle-East. The ski season runs from end of December to end of March and can get quite cold so come prepared with ample warm clothing if you plan on visiting this place. The best way to get to Mazaar Ski Resort is to rent a car and drive there yourself because the views during this short drive are spellbinding.
