The New York Times recommends Beirut as the first place to visit in 2009

12Jan09

The New York Times set out to find the top 44 places to visit in 2009. The first on the list was our beloved Beirut (Beyrouth); And if you agree with the New York Times, having visited several places yourself, contribute and recommend Beirut as well.

It appears under Luxury, Foods, and Party categories, and I wouldn’t agree more.

By end of July, CNN did a report on whether Beyrouth was the Best Party City in the world ?

In 2006, before the war with Israel, Beyrouth was named by NY based Travel Magazine as the 9th best city to visit.

While the West gets its news on Lebanon’s nightlife through word of mouth among its’ expatriates, you can simply follow the socially unacceptable Cotton Candy crowd – check their facebook group.

As an update, the British Sunday times actually thoroughly reframed their view of Lebanon, and labelled “Lebanon as the best ‘country’ to visit in 2010“.
