    Convincing people to visit Lebanon is the easiest thing that anyone could ever do. With just 10 pictures taken by amateurs (only 10 allowed on this site), we could realize that travelling to Lebanon is definitely a need to discover the Creator’s art peace in the world…
    I am a young guy who’s not trying to persuade anyone to come to Lebanon, I am just trying to express my addiction … Being addicted to Lebanon is becoming a common fact in the lines of tourists; usually, he, who visits Lebanon once, visits Lebanon twice and more. And I would like to point that I am a person who made a choice, who decided voluntary to live in Lebanon, and today, I am pretty much sure that being surrounded by the greatest culture on earth, the greatest values and family relations, the greatest folklore, the greatest landscapes… proves that my decision was one of my greatest decisions!
    Visiting Lebanon won’t be good enough if you don’t visit the following sites:
    Jeita Grotto, Quadisha Grotto, Kfarhim Grotto, Kadisha Valley, Douma (North-Lebanon), Byblos Castle, Mseilha Castle, Saida Castle, Moussa Castle, Belfort Castle, Mazar Kfardebian, Bcharre (North-Lebanon), Zgharta, A’youn l Samak, Chouen, Tripoli, Baskinta, Tannourine, Chekka, Zahle, Faraya, Batroun, Jounieh, Anjar, Chouf, Alley, Deir al Qamar, beit ed dine, Broumanna, Harissa (every single village of these brings so much good memories), National Museum of Beirut, Mim Museum, National History Museum (AUB), BIEL, Beirut Art Center, Gibran Khalil Gibran Museum, Sursock Museum, Lebanese Heritage Museum, Byblos Wax Museum, Museum of Lebanese Prehistory, Saint George Cathedral, Batroun’s churches (epic memories), Mohammad Al-Amin mosque, Beirut’s Downtown, Baalbeck temple, Cedars of God, Cedars of Barouk, Cedars of Jaj …
    My mission (visiting Lebanon) started officially 10 years ago… I realize that I am not even half the way there! I won’t even continue naming some sites… eventually, I might write an Ireport about each and every site mentioned before… I won’t even start talking about our values, our food, our parties (beach parties, boat parties, snow parties, concerts…) and our strong brotherhood relations because you can easily witness that once you’re here. Beirut is certainly the Middle East’s Perl, and to all Lebanese emigrants in the world, especially in the USA, Canada, Australia, Mexico, Brazil, France, Germany, Sweden, the Arab world… I would like to say:
    “Just remember, if you’re lucky enough to be LEBANESE, than you’re lucky enough!!”
