Amazing just to wander around and having a look at the intellectual part of Beirut! We just walked around for an hour or so before heading to the beach.

The American university campus is a beacon of beauty in the middle of the city. Visit the museum and its boutique offering a variety of beautiful handicrafts and accessible jewelry and gifts.

The campus is definitely the best-looking in Lebanon, in terms of buildings, greenery, location and cleanliness. However, getting access to it is not simple and the security guards are not very friendly. Don't forget to pass by Zaha Hadid's "Issam Fares Institute"!

There any to be a lot going on. Students alternate between English, French and Arabic. Westerners mingle freely with more conservative Muslim students in a relaxed atmosphere. Hundreds of fearless cats inhabit the beautiful gardens
