Beirut top 1 recommended place among 44
I know many people have probably already seen this or linked to this, but I have to do it as well.
Beirut is the top 1 recommended place to visit by reader and by the NY times. If you filter by Luxury, foodie and party, you get Beirut in the list as well.
Personally? I was shocked. 50% to 60% of the restaurants in Beirut are... closed. I don't get it. The city has been a weird place since Hariri was assassinated, demonstrations, camping in the city, closing it down... Restaurants and shops closing, people losing their jobs!
I don't get it! It doesn't make sense! It doesn't add up!
But still, AHLA W SAHLA! Everyone's welcome to come! Seriously! Don't listen to me! Improve our economy! Come do tourism here!
