A traditional gateway to the East, Beirut lies at the crossroads of continents. Definitely Middle Eastern, but once governed by the French, Beirut still retains a somewhat continental, cosmopolitan atmosphere and is much more relaxed and liberal than many other Middle East cities. Often called "the Paris of the Middle East," sleek modern buildings mix with outdoor cafes and ornately arabesque Ottoman buildings. Almost universally acclaimed by travel magazines as one of the top ten cities of the world, Beirut travel packages are very popular, and for good reason.

Beirut's city centre is compact and all major points of interest are within short walking distances, making it a great place to begin your exploration of this world-class city. The impressive Mohammed al-Amin Mosque is reminiscent of Istanbul's famous Blue Mosque. St George's Cathedral, next to the Mohammed al-Amin Mosque, is a Maronite church dating back to the Crusades. The Al-Omari Mosque, originally built by the Crusaders as a church, was later converted to a mosque by the Mamelukes.
The Corniche along the waterfront is a favourite promenade for natives and tourists alike. Known for its great people-watching, it also features amusement rides, fishing, and street vendors selling hot nuts, corn, coffee and breads. Pigeon Rocks, on Beirut’s western-most tip, is a huge rock formation off the coast. It's a popular gathering spot, and restaurants in the area serve Lebanese and international cuisine. The AUB Archaeological Museum, one of the oldest in the Middle East, features a permanent display of ancient Lebanese and Middle Eastern artfacts found near Pigeon Rocks, including weapons, pottery, jewellery, Phoenician glass and Arab coins from as early as the 5th century BC. And for a real taste of what life was like in old Beirut, visit the Al-Nouzha Bath, the last operating public Turkish Bath in the area.
