爱的康乃馨The beautiful coastal city of Beirut is the capital of Lebanon. After entering the small door, you will find that the field of vision suddenly opens up, just like entering the mouth of the sea. A couple dining with us in this seaside restaurant is about to come in heavy rain. I was sitting there talking and laughing, and I felt a bit off topic. See you
E29***39Beirut Souks is one of the most lively places in Lebanon. If you wanna enjoy shopping, whether its luxury or not, visit this market. it has big famous brands, restaurants and cinmea and coffee shops. I recommend eating at Snoberh, very traditional food (mostly a bakery)
雨丝风片The birthplace of the Phoenician alphabet is here. The Phoenicians created Byblos and many other world cultural heritage sites in Lebanon and Syria. Unfortunately, many of them were destroyed by war. Byblos is one of the few cities still inhabited today. Although most of the houses I live in are modern and newly built. Picture 4 is the house where the local residents lived. Later, the archaeologist found the treasure below, so they demolished the house and excavated the archaeological site. The ruins here are layer after layer. First the oldest Phoenician civilization, then the Christian civilization brought about by the later Crusades, and then the later Islamic civilization. Huntington's "Clash of Civilizations" is the best commentary on Lebanon and even the Middle East, as well as the current world trade war and other issues.
Beirut used to be called the "Paris" of the Middle East. But to be honest, after having visited both cities, it's way more interesting than the real Paris. Thanks to the diversity of various cultures, the city boasts influences from Europe and the Middle East. It is especially evident in the unique, golden architecture around the Nijmeh Square. Due to the city's sensitive location, this diversity is not only a blessing , but unfortunately also a curse. As recently as the 1990s, Beirut was heavily damaged by the Lebanese Civil War. Now it has been rebuilt and if it wasn't for the reputation of the region, Beirut would be as popular as all the other great cities on our planet. #beirut #lebanon

is described as Paris in the Middle East. The city has a trendy business district that resembles the Champs Elyses. But on the verge of being a converted traditional market and large and small mosques, Armenian churches, shuttle in French The background music on the street is often the Qur'an.
After the big mosque, there is a huge Christmas tree, and there is a large piece of ancient Roman ruins in front. The sudden collision and mix and match are really exciting. According to the guide of the city on foot, this is because the French built the foundation of the house. I did not dig up the monuments and directly built the house. The civil war gave him a bombardment. The ancient Roman baths were all re-visited, and I dont know why they were scattered in the city without protection.
When it comes to taking pictures, the big guns and camouflage suits are not everywhere. Naturally, there are places where you can't enter, such as the former Jewish quarters, such as the famous Holiday Inn downstairs. The most interesting thing is that not all abandoned ghost buildings are the products left by the civil war. When you find that there are not too many bullet holes in the outer wall and even people are wearing cotton trousers on the balcony, it is very likely that they have discovered the talents here. Know the anecdote - 1 yuan apartment. Before the Civil War, 2 Li-Pounds could be exchanged for 1 US dollar. At that time, there were two types of renting in Beirut. One was short-term rent, and the other was permanent rent. After the civil war began, Li-Volkswagen was devalued. Now, 1,500 Li-Pounds can be exchanged for one US dollar, but the rent contract It is still the previous price, so there will be a situation where 250 liters of pounds, that is, 1 yuan, can be rented for a long time. The landlord will not repair the damaged old house in order to drive them away.
When walking in the old town, it is always attracted by some interesting graffiti, a satirical black and white graffiti on the corner of the city center.
In the 1980s and 1990s, Lebanese used graffiti or logo as a form of propaganda. They can still be seen in some areas of Beirut. Lebanese graffiti evolved from a way of expressing life-related information to more refined and modern murals.
What surprised me the most was that on the wall of an abandoned high-rise building, a huge graffiti was laid on a wall a dozen meters high. A boylike boy was studying the wire panel, vivid and vivid. The picture is strongly contrasted with the wall full of bullet holes. Now I still remember the impact of seeing this picture at that time, so I can't forget it when I look at it.
During the civil war in Lebanon, Hamra was the center of intellectual activity because it was full of theatres and other cultural institutions. Hamra had the most prestigious university in the Middle East, the American University of Beirut, although the area was not as cool as Gemmayzeh. Stylish, but with a friendly student atmosphere strolling the streets, drinking in several bars and cafes.
If you want to enter the American University of Beirut, you need to leave your passport at the entrance to the main entrance, take it away when you leave, and go to free. From the football field to the beach, the green trees and the blue sea make up a picture of happiness. In many trails, a few naughty cats emerge from time to time. Learning in such an environment, it is exciting to think about it. .
In Beirut, in addition to the high-rise cement forest, the only natural beauty is Pigeon Rock. Pigeon Rock is made up of two rock arches, adjacent to the cliffs, from which you can enjoy stunning sunsets and sea views.
Leaving the city center along the Hamra Street towards the sea, about half an hour to the promenade, facing the Mediterranean is a hotel and restaurant that rises along the seafront West came to the famous Pigeon Rock. Two weathered stone mountains stand in the Mediterranean Sea, walking on the shores of Pigeon Rocks and looking back to the shore. The Mediterranean and the tall buildings blend into one.
One side is the vast blue sea, and the other side is a high-rise cement building, which is completely different from a different city in a city.
