Lebanon lies in the Middle East and is a sovereign. It is often called the Lebanese Republic. It shares its borders with countries like Syria, Israel and Cyprus. Lebanon is actually supposed to be the smallest country in the entire continent of Asia. It has a wonderful coastline that you can never get tired of and even boasts of a popular city - fashionable Beirut. Lebanon is home to a cuisine that we have all sampled at some point, in several different versions - Lebanese cuisine. Both traditional and modern, the country is full of quiet charm and at times, solitude.
Lebanon's regions include five areas. Beirut, Bekaa, Mount Lebanon, North Lebanon and South Lebanon. Beirut is the capital of the country and is the largest city. Bekaa has been labelled 'the bread basket' of Lebanon and must be visited for its wineries and agricultural lifestyle. Mount Lebanon is apt for adventure enthusiasts, with snow mountains as well as rocky terrain for biking. North Lebanon is filled with historical spots and is home to a beautiful ski resort while South Lebanon has archaeological delights in the form of ruins and ancient biblical sites.
June - September is the best time to visit Lebanon

Good food. Scenic views. Friendly people.
A little expensive. Average infrastructure. Too much smoke, on account of a lot of smokers on streets.
History lovers. Nature lovers. Foodies.
There is a lot to choose from in terms of accommodation in Lebanon. You can choose from the best of the best hotels to adventurous camping sites.
