An hour north of Beirut is Lebanon’s second largest city Tripoli, which is famous for it’s beautiful mosques and traditional souks (outdoor markets).
Further up north, winter is the best time to visit Feraya – a favorite skiing destination where the rich and famous of Lebanon (and the rest of the Arab world) head to see and be seen. Once again, the key to fitting in is looking your absolute best. The pressure to look good all the time is probably the most exhausting factor I came across during my weeklong stay in the country.
