Need help planning my vacation!!

by ivanov999

Hello everyone,
I will soon (in less than a week) be leaving for Beirut where I will be staying for 5 days at the University Hotel (right next to AUB).
5 days is quite a bit I think, so I was looking for travel suggestions that go beyond Pigeon Rocks, Nejmeh Square, Martyr’s square etc… I’m talking about typical Lebanese stuff!

For example:

- Where can I go to eat? I’m talking about those really typical Lebanese places (not tourist traps) where we can get a nice narguile after a meal ;)
- Are there any typical Lebanese markets in the downtown area?
- In which parts of the city can we see the ruins of the war? Where is the famous “green line” downtown? Where is the Hezbollah camp? (no, don’t worry I won’t be entering, I just want to see it from afar).
- Of course one day will be dedicated to the beach: where can we go?
- Is there a place we can go just out of Beirut, maybe on some high hills and have a great view of the city?
- How long does it take to go to Our Lady of Harissa from Beirut? And how do we get there?

Any help is really appreciated!!

Where is the Hezbollah camp? excuse me , camp !!!! southern lebanon and Baalbek area population belong to the Shia sect and hezbollah and it`s leaders are legitimate political rep. for this sector of society in the ME just like other representatives for the various groups in the lebanese parliament .
Have fun in their land .

Travel Tips for Beirut

A Dazzling Beauty from Lebanon

by sarrahh

A dazzling beauty from Lebanon. Haifa has been able to capture the lime light through her stunning charm, captivating presence, eye-catching elegance and fascinating allure. This sultry charm has been her passport to the world of fame, fashion and music.
At the age of 16, Haifa won a beauty contest in South Lebanon, and in 1995, took part in the Miss Lebanon competition where she won the title of “Most beautiful young woman in Lebanon”. A year later, she was in massive demand for fashion shows. Owing to her beauty, which perfectly just rates Arab and Eastern women’s beauty, her photos made the cover of more than 100 magazines. Likewise through the Internet sites that clamoured for her eye catching appeal she was voted “The most beautiful woman in the world” by her fans.
From here, encouraged by the Rotana music company and her, legions of cheering fans, Haifa has made a natural and seamless progression into singing. Her Album “Howa el zaman” is the first fruit of the co-operation between her and Rotana. Believing in Haifa’s talent, Rotana offered her its utmost support at the time when many others were sceptical.
Haifa took her new career very seriously and was extremely selective and meticulous in her choice of the album’s lyrics and music and her choice of producers and arrangers. She performs the songs with a voice so sweet that it penetrates directly into the heart.
Her first album, “Howa el zaman”, is a huge once in a lifetime opportunity for her, and this is why she is handling it so carefully. Unpretentious and simple, she hugely appreciates the encouragement of her fans and close friends and considers that both She is the beautiful Haifa Wehbe – top beauty queen, fashion model and now singer who has been strong enough to overcome any difficulties and obstacles placed in her way and interpret her childhood dreams in an album, which will surely propel her into stardom in the music world.

The Syrian Connection

by RblWthACoz

Many people believe that there is some Syrian connection with the Hariri assassination. That combined with several things the Syrian government did after asked to leave the country didn't exactly leave things in the best of relations. It might be wise not to advertise your going to Syria if you plan to. Depending on whom you talk to, it might arouse passions.

When I arrived in Beirut, a soldier glancing at my passport stopped and stared at my Syrian visa for a while. He returned my passport without speaking or looking at me.

The Legend of Saint George

by MM212

One of the most important saints in eastern churches, Saint George, the dragon slayer, also happens to be the patron saint of Beirut. Here and in churches around the world, he is always depicted riding a horse and fighting the dragon, which according to one local legend, occurred right here in Beirut (was it at the Bay of Saint George?). Saint George's Day is celebrated in churches on the 23rd April, both in the Middle East and in Europe, where his legend was brought back by the Crusaders. Born in Palestine, the saint is said to have been martyred around 300 AD during the time of Emperor Diocletian. His importance to the region, and to Beirut in particular, explains why there are so many churches dedicated to him in Beirut. A large mosaic depicting his fight is also proudly displayed at Place de l'Etoile next to the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Saint George.

Harissa, modernist church

by sachara

The modernist Maronite church is a giant building made of concrete. The outline of this church can be seen from Jounieh, if there is a clear sky. We visited Harissa, when it was very hazy. Harissa is the town, where the rich Christians live. In 1995 there was no apartment under the one million dollar.
