by Andrea Jessy Travel guide

About Beirut

Beirut has its own identity in the history. It has witnessed numerous civilizations and wars through the ages and yet the place is standing firm with underlying attractions and treasure of history. The city is the largest in the republic of the Lebanon and it is also serving as a capital with a population of 2,012,000 (approximately). Many places are alive for 5000 years with archaeological and biblical phenomenon. The city has segregated into 12 quarters and they are even separated into sectors. Though the city is crowded and polluted, its unique hosting ambience, fashion clubs, pubs and bars will make you forget the prickly issues. All the historical wonders are flanked between the districts. The currency used in the city is Lebanese pound (LBP). Find the cheap flights from Abu Dhabi to Beirut on Rehlat and grab the best deal for your journey.

Being a primitive place, Beirut reveals enormous historical and archaeological wonders. Among all of them, we can see major landmarks that steal your time. However, many of the highlights are scattered in different districts. Pigeon Rocks located in Raouché District are a natural rock formation with arch shape, gigantic in size, and beautiful in view. Visitors and locals will enjoy watching sunset from here. Local boats facilitate you to ride through the arch, which is a great experience. In the Downtown district, visitors can find the ‘Place de l'Etoile’, where the Beirut’s oldest church is located and it is linked with a religious Museum. The Martyr's Statue is another corner deserves a snap, located in Downtown Martyr's Square. The lengthy river passing caves are located in the north of Beirut in Nahr al-Kalb valley at ‘Jeita Grotto’. These caves are special as they are sprawled with massive rock formations, colours, beautiful shapes of the stalactites and stalagmites for 9 kilometers.
