Guardian recommands Beirut among other cities in its 2010 guide for best touristic destinationBookmark this
The suggestion was based on the Original Travel opinion concerning the most vibrant cities in the world. The UK-Based Newspaper The Guardian listed this suggestion as part of its Travel Guru Guide 2010 for the best destinations in the world.
Original Travel suggested Beirut because of many reasons mainly its night life, and because of the Beirut39 festival that will be hosted in beirut city in April 2010.
Tom Barber - co-founding director of Original Travel: We're extremely excited about the first Beirut39 festival (hayfestival.com/beirut39), because it encapsulates what's exciting about the Lebanese capital right now. Organised by the people behind the Hay Festival, it runs from 15 to 18 April, bringing together 39 writers from across the Arab world, all under the age of 39. Beirut is all about youth, and it's one of the most vibrant places on earth. April is also the perfect time to visit the city, because there's still snow in the swanky ski resorts, such as Mzaar, and the braver visitor can take a dip in the Mediterranean on the same day.
