Walking around Beirut, Lebanon 2018 | Tourist sights and attractions

As you saw in my previous video, I spent the first day of my visit to Lebanon in the seaside town of Byblos and along the Mediterranean coast. A local bus took me back to Beirut after dark and now I had another 48 hours of this weekend trip to explore the capital of Lebanon.

I started the day with a walk along the Corniche, which is popular with runners, bikers, families and fishermen.
It stretches 5 kilometers from the Beirut marina all the way to Pigeon Rocks, a monumental natural arch which is often considered THE landmark of Beirut and a must-see when in town.
This is one of the few places in town that is less hectic and loud. When you are at the outlook in front of the rocks, you can walk down to the shore and explore the area from multiple angles.

Just a few blocks east, there's Hamra, a chaotic, congested and noisy neighborhood which is not just packed with cars honking day and night, but also lots of cafés and restaurants as well as shops selling pretty much anything.
I had very tasty lunch here in one of the restaurants. Lebanese food was actually one of the reasons I came here and I was never disappointed.

After lunch, I continued east along Hamra street and eventually reached Downtown Beirut, the central district with its posh high-end designer stores, over-priced outdoor cafés and restored buildings which were originally built during the French mandate in the early 20th century. The central square of this area is called Place de l'Etoile and features a 1930s clock tower and French-style Art Deco architecture.
This area feels entirely different than Hamra: there are traffic lights and you can cross the street without running the risk being run over by a car, there are no potholes, it is very clean,
but it somehow seemed to lack authenticity.

Some of the most significant places of worship in town are located here: Saint George Greek Orthodox Cathedral and Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque. In between, there is a huge archeological site.

As I happened to be in town just after Christmas, I still got to see the nativity scene on Martyrs' Square and something I had never imagined seeing here: A huge Christmas tree just next to the major mosque.
Beirut is home to so many different religious denominations and this becomes obvious when the Muslim call to prayer coincides with the bells of the adjacent church.

East of the downtown district is Gemmayzeh, one of Beirut's trendiest neighborhoods. There are not just great bars and restaurants here, but also local fashion and designer stores as well as galleries. Some businesses here are so hipster that it hurts!
This neighborhood was really nice to hang out in. Definitely come here after dark, if you enjoy clubs and bars. Somehow, I realized that I don't have any good footage of the nightlife, but it is really something to experience for yourself.

Each neighborhood is unique and there is so much to see and do. Take your time and explore different parts of town, if you have the time.

As this intense weekend came to an end, I felt a bit overwhelmed by all the amazing things I've seen and done in and around Beirut. I left with an overly positive impression of a country that is often portrayed very negatively by the mainstream media. The friendly and welcoming locals certainly deserve better. This was not my last visit to Lebanon and I can't wait to come back someday.

LEBANON is NOT what you think!!

GUYS, I HAVE FINALLY MADE IT TO LEBANON AND IT'S AMAZING!!!

I've been dying to come to this tiny Middle Eastern country of Lebanon for about 5 years now, and words cannot describe how happy I have been here over the last 4 days.

My buddy Georgio (who I met thru Snapchat like 3 years ago), has been kind enough to host me at his family's house and give me the best local experience possible in Lebanon.

Unfortunately, Lebanon gets a very bad rep on the news as a dangerous place-- but that could not be farther from the truth. My goal with this video is to shatter all of those negative stereotypes and let you know that Lebanon is a complete dream come true.

EXPLORING BEIRUT: Major ATTRACTIONS AND SITES TO SEE AND VISIT (LEBANON)

Subscribe here: - If you’re looking for the real East-meets-West so talked about in the Middle East, you need look no further than Beirut in Lebanon. Fast-paced, fashion-conscious and overwhelmingly friendly, it's not a relaxing city to spend time in – it's too crowded, polluted and chaotic for that – but its energy, soul, diversity and intoxicating atmosphere make it a vital, addictive city. A couple of excellent museums are the key sights, but exploring the character of the different districts, strolling the waterfront and diving into the city's wonderful restaurant and nightlife scene are major attractions. As Lebanon is so small, and day trips easy, some travellers base themselves here for their entire visit.
Lebanon is a country in Western Asia. It is bordered by Syria to the north and east and Israel to the south, while Cyprus is west across the Mediterranean Sea. Lebanon's location at the crossroads of the Mediterranean Basin and the Arabian hinterland facilitated its rich history and shaped a cultural identity of religious and ethnic diversity. At just 10,452 km2 (4,036 sq. mi.), it is the smallest recognized sovereign state on the mainland Asian continent.

TRANSCRIPT
I’m Sal Lavallo. I’ve been to every country in the world. And, today I’m gonna tell you about some of my favourite countries in the Middle East and my favourite experiences in each of them.

BAHRAIN
It was one of the first places that the British came and they already had this big fort there. It also has a lot of culture and a really great National Museum, I thinks one of the better museums in the Middle East. Not only does it have a big history part but it has a really nice contemporary art like centre. I also had you know fun time driving into the desert, have you heard of the tree of life or so the tree of life in Bahrain you drive desert desert desert and suddenly there is this huge green tree that people think is this anomaly. I think Bahrain in a lot of ways is an anomaly.

EGYPT
I one night ate pigeon and it’s actually pretty good. I was you know we ordered it, it’s somewhat common and it’s not, it’s fine, it’s like a small little bird it’s hard to get the meat off but you have to eat it with your hands. I kind of go through the bones, I wouldn’t recommend it. You know on a first date because you’re a little bit you know using your hands but it’s that was interesting that was a first for me. What I remember the most was that the pyramids are first time you see them are amazing and then you drive by them every day and it’s funny that something so incredible can become so normalized. I went to Luxor to see all of the temples there and it’s just you know they say that the pyramids were older to Cleopatra then Cleopatra is to the iPhone. That’s unbelievable right, to think that there’s that much history.

IRAQ
I spent my time in Iraqi Kurdistan and I think I was a little bit nervous to go there. I think a lot of places we get nervous since all in our heads and the second that I landed you know we were walking down the streets seeing everybody living their normal day lives, we got really really comfortable and it’s such a beautiful place. We ate a lot of kababs, we also ate a lot of fresh honey, we had to drank too much sugary tea, I think we are always like kind of had the sugar shakes, oh and the have like a big like bazaar and herbal that’s similar to like the Turkish Grand Bazaar and you can get all you know Turkish delight and tons of dried figs and dried nuts there. That’s really it’s kind of like a culinary heaven there in a way.

JORDAN
We went to Petra another really intense historical site that just kind of comes out of nowhere in the middle of the desert and then when we were leaving it started snowing and we got caught in a snowstorm which you again wouldn’t you know even I who had lived here for many years I sometimes, oh Middle East must be hot and you know we’re like deserts must be hot and that’s not true. It was so cold, snow everywhere.

KUWAIT
I thought it was such a pleasant city, I mean like palm trees and we went in like may be April so it was like perfect time weather-wise and all of our business meetings were really successful and everybody was really nice, so it was like a perfect experience.

Things NOT To Do in Lebanon

For a nation on the border of Syria and Israel, you might expect some possibility of danger when visiting Lebanon. You'd be right. If you want to maximize your chances of having a pleasant vacation, here are some things not to do on a Lebanese holiday.

1. Don’t Be Afraid!
The people in Lebanon are perfectly friendly and the country is filled with gorgeous landmarks and fascinating history. Just relax and enjoy yourselves.

2. Make Sure to Dress Appropriately
Lebanon is a pretty conservative Arab country. Men and women are expected to avoid wearing anything more revealing than short-sleeves and shorts. Make sure your clothing is loose-fitting; women should consider covering their heads as well.

3. Don’t Just Stay in Beirut
Lebanon has some really gorgeous locations outside its most popular tourist spot. The people are generally hospitable and warm, and you can’t really say you’ve experienced true Lebanese culture until you’ve experienced something beyond Beirut.

4. Don’t Get Into a Taxi Without Agreeing on a Price
Some tourists have complained that they were “taken” by cab drivers when they couldn’t agree on a final price. Avoid this by telling the cabbie where you’re going and agreeing on a price before you get in the car.

5. Don’t Forget that ‘Traveler’s Diarrhea’ Is a Real Thing
If you’ve never traveled to a developing nation, you should be aware that your first-world immune system might take a small hit … like, right when you land. Sometimes the jolt to your bowels hits quickly but it’ll pass quickly, don’t worry.

6. Don’t Take Pics of the M*litary
You can look at their installations, but your best bet is to simply keep your eyes on the beautiful scenery, not on the men trying to defend it.

7. Stay Away from Dahiyeh
The world famous suburb in southern Beirut has attracted lots of attention. Don’t go see it for yourself. The residents of Dahiyeh are just suburbanites who don’t appreciate being gawked at by some leering tourist.

8. Don’t Skip the Street Food
Lebanon is known for its scrumptious street food. There are several excellent meals served on a street corner, so if you’re just sticking to the glitzy restaurants, then you’re missing out on an integral part of Lebanese culture.

9. Don’t Take Pictures of the Locals Without Permission
There’s not some old world spooky superstition attached to this one, it’s just rude. How would you feel if you were walking down the street and a group of people wearing traditional Arab garb started taking pictures of you?

10. The State Department’s Opinion
Earlier in the year, the Department of State issued a clear warning to avoid travel to Lebanon thanks to p*litical upheaval, sk*rmishes and other threats. In fact, the State Department has said that it cannot guarantee its ability to transport US citizens out of the country should the situation worsen.

Did you disagree with any of these?

BEIRUT Top 35 Tourist Places - Beirut, Lebanon, Asia

Top 7 Countries in Asia!

Asia has been my home since 2013, when I moved to South Korea to teach English. Over the last 5 years, I've lived in Vietnam, the Philippines and currently Thailand -- and I've been to almost every country on the beautiful continent of Asia.

Each culture in Asia is very unique -- from religions to traditions, nature, history, cuisines and rituals -- and it provides endless opportunities to learn and discover. But above anything else, THE PEOPLE of Asia are the most hospitable and welcoming as they come.

Admittedly, it has been very hard to choose only 7 of my favorite Asian countries to feature in this video (because I truly love every place for a different reason) -- but when it all comes down to it, these would be my 7 favorite countries on this amazing place called Asia!

THE PHILIPPINES SOUTH KOREA, SINGAPORE, VIETNAM, NEPAL, INDONESIA, JAPAN

What would be your top 7 in Asia? Why? Please comment below and let's get the discussion started!

PS - I kept this video limited to East/South/Southeast Asian countries. While the Middle East and West/Central Asia are technically Asian countries, I consider them very culturally different. Iran and Tajikstan would be on this list if it was all of Asia!

Rise Above Lebanon (Full Version)

Commissioned by the Lebanese Ministry of Tourism, We spent 5 summer months filming Lebanon from Above, including its rural, urban, cultural touristic and historical location, as well as the amazing number of festivals.

The idea was to show Lebanon's beauty, diversity and wealth from another angle (above), in order to encourage and promote international and domestic tourism.

My main personal goal is to remind us all that Lebanon is not all about problems, political turmoil, trash...etc but is first and foremost a country that has so much to offer on such a small portion of land, and is still, in spite of everything, truly beautiful.

Maybe by seeing this video, people who lost sight of what Lebanon truly is, will have newfound optimism and strength to participate in steering the country in the right direction, to understand that it is their country to love and protect.

_____________________________________________________

We filmed from mid June to early November and covered Mount Lebanon, Beirut, Southern Lebanon, the Bekaa, Baalbek and North Lebanon.

We received amazing support from the Ministry of Tourism, as well as the Ministry of Culture, the Ministry of Defense, the Lebanese Air Force and the Lebanese Army Intelligence.

From the beginning, a social media campaign was created on Instagram, under @riseabovelebanon, which yielded a lot of interest and followers, reaching an organic 12,000 followers so far.

The book, also titled Rise Above Lebanon, was released on 2 December 2015. it is a hardcover photography book of the highest standard, with 200 pages of images of Lebanon from Above and is available in all major bookshops in Lebanon.

The video, of a duration of 5 minutes was released by Live Love Lebanon and the Ministry of Tourism on 4 February 2016 and immediately went viral, with over about 2 million views as well as over 40,000 shares, 12,000 likes and hundreds of comments (99% of which are positive).

The result is this video of 5 Minutes.

The tiny country of Lebanon produces one of the most delicious cuisines that you can find anywhere on earth. I've basically been on a 4 day eating binge around Lebanon with my buddy Georgio, and my stomach could not be happier. The food in Lebanon is as good as it gets.

My favorite Lebanese foods (so far) have been: falafel, hummus, tabbouleh, man’ousheh, olives, fattoush, kunafeh and baklava. Have you tried any of these? What's your favorite Lebanese food? Comment below!
