Eclectic Beirut Summer

30th October 2018 Destinations

Dearest Turtles,

This week Live2Leave is going to one of the most vibrant cities on earth: Beirut!

The exquisite weather (warm days, cooler nights), the turquoise Mediterranean sea, the delicious restaurants with cuisines from all around the world, the fascinating museums and history, the incredibly fun clubs and the luxury shops make Beirut one of the most eclectic destinations for your summer holidays. And thanks to our very own Beirut local expert @Dal, and super-users @Lydia and @LeilaLm, we now know exactly what not to miss out!
Sending lots of summer-love to all Turtles out there – especially those at the office!
