The Real Beirut

The Real Beirut

Have you seen the real Beirut?

October 4, 2009 3:23 by

The BBC has published an online guide to Beirut. Since half of Kipp’s gargantuan team is from the Lebanese capital, we’re always curious to know how people perceive Beirut, and where publications recommend visitors to go.

It isn’t the sort of city you can walk into and simply enjoy the sites. Beirut isn’t beautiful, but it’s certainly exciting and provocative.

How would you describe Beirut?

    Beirut certainly is beautiful if you appreciate nature and nice weather … Sure it is corrupt, politically instable, and lacks professionalism and a proper infrastructure but who needs that when it is the most exciting, fast-paced, most entertaining city in the Middle East? Trust me, developed cities/nations are boring! viva Beirut :)

    Beirut is a magical wonderful lively city with lots of excitment and action.

    Rita does not know what she is talking about.

    Here are my 5 favorite cities around the Globe : 1) Beirut 2) New York City 3) Paris 4) San Francisco 5) Vienna.

    Beirut has been charming for the last two thousand years and will continue to be charming.

    I visited Beirut a few weeks ago and absolutely loved the place. What I really found remarkable is how the city and people have been able to pick up from the civil war. Its an amazingly vibrant city with beautiful natural resources – beaches and mountains and is full of life with very friendly people. The city has an amazing night life as well.

    Go there if you have the chance!!
