Cheap Flights to Lebanon

Highlights of Lebanon

Bordered by the Mediterranean Sea, Syria, and Israel, Lebanon's comfortable climate and mountainous terrain make it the ideal tourist destination. As rich in diversity as it is in beautiful scenery, different ethnicities and religions make up the population of the West Asian country adding cultural appeal. From its beautiful coastline to its winter lodges (the Cedars, Faraya Oyoun as Siman, Laklouk, Fakra, Qanat Bakiche and Zaarour), Lebanon is the place to visit any time of year.

Beirut, Lebanon's capital is many things to many people. The gallery openings and museums continue on in the face of violence and assassinations. Soho-like bars, world-class universities, thick, aromatic coffee and an amazingly friendly people make Beirut a city more alive than many. Take in Aanjar as you stroll down the main street, enthralled by the remains of the Middle East's only Umayyad-fortified city. In Byblos you will catch a glimpse of the past in the archaeological remains and feast on scrumptious seafood at a quaint ancient harbor. Taste the infamous sweets in Tripoli while haggling for lower prices in the medieval souqs. Visit Beiteddine to see the marvelous mosaics on the fantastic Ottoman-era palace then travel to Tyre to walk around the world's largest Roman hippodrome before wandering through the shore-side nature reserve here. Other cities worth mentioning include Baalbeck, Faqra, Jeita, Sidon, and Zahle

Other Money-Saving Tips

Traveling during off-peak times can significantly reduce airfare costs. The same can be said about any major holidays. Plane tickets are in demand the week leading up to the holiday as well as the week following the event. With roughly half the population being Muslim, holidays differ from those celebrated by other religions and it is important to keep these dates in mind when looking for cheap flights to Lebanon. The more that you know about a country, the more financial freedom and flexibility you will experience in planning your trip.

In Closing

Lebanon can best be experienced in person, rather than through your national or local news stations. Only by being there can you really understand the spirit that drives her people and know that Lebanon is not a hopeless case. Some day peace will reign here and it will change from what it is now. But now...it is special.
