"Beirut is back . . . and it's beautiful." An interesting article from the UK's Guardian Online. How the Lebanese capital went from warzone to 2010's most glamorous tourist destination. Anyone visited the city recently?

I haven't visited but I'd love to go.

I absolutly despise how local politics ruins beautiful places only to keep a few people in power or to make a few extra bucks for the short term while the long term goals would be more profitable and beneficial to everybody.

I am hoping to go for the weekend very soon....it's an easy hop, skip and a jump from Dubai and a big playground for those that want to let there hair down and PARTY!

Lebanon is the place to be seen and to see at the moment! Just remember to keep an eye on the situation as it can change quite fast.
