Lebonan is the small country, only 10.452 km square in size, has an interesting diversity in history, culture, religion, landscape, climate, and altitude. Lebanon’s rich history and culture dating back to 3000 BC, when the Phoenicians occupied Lebanese soil. Following these traders, the country has subsequently been inhabited by Persians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Crusaders, Ottomans, and more recently, the French. They all left their traces, from religious building to huge castles and citadels. After the first century, religion in Lebanon shifted from polytheism to Christianity and in 636, Islam was introduced by the Arabs. 

Due to its alternation of lowland and highland, with the highest peak of 3088 meters (Qornet es-Sawda), the landscape, climate, soils, and vegetation differ markedly within short distances. As one of the most heavily wooded countries in the world, Lebanon is famous for its cedar tree (Cedrus Libani), also the symbol of the country. Lebanon’s beautiful nature and natural reserves harbor a wide variety of animal and plant species and make Lebanon ideal for outdoor activities. With its Mediterranean climate, day temperatures in summer (June – September) range between 20 to 25 degrees Celsius in the mountains and 25 to 35 degrees Celsius in Beirut. In winter (December – February), the mountains have significant snowfall, while the temperature in Beirut during this period varies between 10 and 18 degrees Celsius. Swimming and sunbathing at the beach is pleasant from May till October, while skiers and snowboarders can enjoy the mountain snow from December till early April.

Other highlights of Lebanon tourism include the outstanding fresh local cuisine, the booming nightlife, and the many excellent wines the country produces. Lebanon has its less attractive sides like every country. Roads are poorly maintained and traffic, specifically in and around Beirut, is chaotic. Electricity supplies are cut off daily and pollution due to minimal recycling, waste dumping, cars, and the industry is relatively high. Politics in Lebanon and the surrounding countries have caused damage and instability to the country, with the current situation in Syria being another threat. 

Lebanon’s culture is full of contradictions: freedom and imprisonment, poverty and affluence, prosperity and stagnation, defeat, and hope. It is fascinating to experience the spirit and strength of the Lebanese, managing to maintain their positivity, generosity, and warmth despite frequent upheavals. Without a doubt, the people of Lebanon will add to your experience and make your stay more memorable.
