Holiday in Beirut

Presentation of Beirut

Beirut is one of the world’s most ancient nations, with over 5,000 years of history. As Lebanon’s coastal capital, it has a thriving population of wealthy locals. Yacht clubs and resorts are sprinkled along its flanks, making travel packages to Beirut luxurious and adventurous. Tourists wander through its cafes and museums in search of a new nation — one that celebrates its past as much as it does its future. All inclusive holiday packages will guide you through souks and bohemian neighbourhoods that have an ambience quite unlike that of any other city. It’s known as the Paris of the middle east for good reason: it has a wealth of heritage spanning centuries, which is expressed through art, cuisine, and culture. If you’re planning last minute vacation packages and a flight to Beirut, we’ll make sure you experience the tour of a lifetime.

Things to Know Before Visiting Beirut

When you book a flight and hotel in Beirut, you’ll need to obtain a visa at the airport, which will last a month. Flight and hotel deals come with plenty of transport options, from Ubers to taxis and careems. Careems are ride-sharing service providers that are usually stationed in crowded tourist spots. Since lira are difficult to dispose of outside the country, it’s best to exchange your currency for U.S. dollars, which are accepted by most merchants. If you need an internet connection or a mobile charge point, they’re offered by many businesses and casual cafes. Book your flight to Beirut and begin arranging your next holiday.

What is the Weather in Beirut

Low-cost holidays in summer fall between June and September. The rainy season between January and December is cool and comfortable. August will provide the driest weather, and if you prefer a chill in the air, visit during January and February. Temperatures rise to a maximum of about 31 degrees Celsius. Compared to most Mediterranean climates, Beirut has low humidity levels throughout the year. Extreme weather is rare, so you can visit during any season.
