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.

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)
juki235This is a landmark in the center of Beirut, Islamic architecture. Next to it is the European-style shopping mall in the city center, the building has a beautiful combination of ancient and modern. The whole mosque is still very modern, after all, it was not repaired long ago. Please take off your shoes and socks when entering the mosque. Girls remember to wear a headscarf.
Tripoli is the largest city in northern Lebanon and the second-largest city in the country. Situated 85 kilometers north of the capital Beirut, it is the capital of the North Governorate and the Tripoli District. Tripoli overlooks the eastern Mediterranean Sea, and it is the northernmost seaport in Lebanon.
Gorgeous city, especially by the water at sunset. Friendly locals, interesting culture and history, and great food. Highly recommended!
The ancient seaside town of Tye in Southern Lebanon is filled with colorful alleyways, historic ruins, and beautiful beach shacks where you can enjoy some fresh seafood and delicious Man’oushe Za’atar in between swims in the clear water. In Tyre you’ll also find Roman ruins that are UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the largest hippodrome in antiquity, a necropolis, and a sea harbor submerged underwater. And what makes it even better, is that you won’t find giant groups of tourists there! I was the only one at these UNESCO sites when I visited, and the town has very chilled beach vibes filled with locals enjoying a day off with family. #awesomepic
Winter walk back in time in Baalbek, Lebanon.
Tyre Beach in Lebanon! Wonderful! 💕💕
Lebanon Snow! Wonderful view to see the snow and ocean together!
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.
