Lebanon overview

Lebanon Travel Guide
To say that Lebanon has a complicated history would be an extreme understatement. Because of its geographic location between Israel and Syria, as well as its diverse cultural make up, Lebanon has been a country that has enjoyed only brief periods of peace and prosperity. The capital Beirut was once dubbed as the "Paris of the Middle East" but subsequent civil wars have taken its toll. Tourism is once again starting to bounce back, at least until the next rocket is launched, and those willing to plan a holiday in Lebanon will be rewarded. Many people come to Lebanon for the diverse sites, music, festivals, and food that have been formed as the result of its diversity. The Baalbeck International Music Festival is popular among both foreign and Lebanese tourists. Lebanon is once again enjoying a prosperous economy and tourism has reached all time highs in the last year.
