Just at this spectacular place, you feel the real meaning of Beirut, "The Paris of The Middle East". It is truly a hallmark for entire Lebanon. Just walking around will give you the strong believe of how strong and smart the Lebanese people are.

This is the new down town of Beirut, renovated and fresh, with shops, restaurants, cafes and small attractions. Good place to spend the day with kids and on a nice sunny day.

Luxury buildings and very expensive shops which reflect nothing about Beirut. There were very few people about and it seemed pretty soul-less.
