Sitting on the Mediterranean coast, Beirut, the country's capital and largest city, has plenty of appeal itself, as well as offering a convenient base for exploring the country's other sights and cities.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Mim Museum - Mineral Museum and Solidere. Your inner history buff will appreciate Temples of Baalbek and Churches of Harissa. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Beirut: Byblos Castle (in Byblos), Beit Eddine (in Beiteddine) and Chateau Ksara (in Zahle). The adventure continues: examine the collection at Banque Du Liban Museum, gain insight at American University of Beirut, take in the spiritual surroundings of Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Saint George, and shop like a local with Hamra Street.

To find ratings, where to stay, maps, and tourist information, go to the Beirut travel route planning website.

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to Beirut is an approximately 3- hour flight. You can also drive. Traveling from Riyadh to Beirut, you'll gain 1 hour due to the time zone difference.
