There are many traits attributed to Lebanese but, perhaps, the most universally acknowledged are a zest for enjoying life, a dogged drive to survive and a warm, welcoming attitude toward guests. When you visit, you will frequently hear the Arabic greeting “ahlan wasahlan," which means "welcome," but is literally translated: “You’ve come to stay with family.”

Every visitor to Lebanon should walk around and get lost in the side streets, as well as walk on the Corniche by the sea and watch the horizon and the sunset.
