Reasons Why Lebanon Is the Perfect Escape Plan for This Christmas Break
Whether you’re a winter person like myself, or not, we all love December no matter what. It’s literally the merriest/jolliest month of the year, I mean, it’s Christmas time! And when I say Christmas, then it’s always time for a break! Out of all the travel destinations we could think of, we couldn’t think of a better winter getaway than Lebanon and here’s why!
Being situated in the heart of the Middle East makes the country a strategic travel destination in terms of proximity. It’s close to all Arab countries, hence, cheaper flight tickets; in case you book in advance since it’s a high season, of course.
Faraya all the way!
Christmas and snow go together like cookies and milk, and Lebanon is quite lucky to be a Mediterranean country with plenty of white flakes! Faraya is most known for its epic ski trips packed with snowball fights, snow angels, and dreamy téléphérique rides!
Lebanon’s marvelous capital, Beirut, is one of the most popular travel destinations, not just in the region, but in the whole world. The city is most renowned for its lit nightlife scene, so, expect a list of the hottest events in town to be announced around Christmas and NYE time.
In case you’re planning for a longer vacation or you actually live in Lebanon and you’d like to have the full December experience, we’d highly recommend you don’t miss the country’s most anticipated music event of the year. Beirut and Beyond Music Festival is kickstarting on the 6th of December, 2018. The festival will be featuring an awesome lineup that includes artists such as Tania Saleh, Lekhfa, and more!
