Ev­ery sum­mer has its own story

Lebanon Traveler - - FRONT PAGE -

Sum­mer in Le­banon is full of lit­tle plea­sures and whether bronz­ing on the white sandy shores of the countr y, head­ing into the cool­ing moun­tain air or en­joy­ing the ur­ban out­doors is your thing, we’ve packed the lat­est is­sue full of des­ti­na­tions for ever y taste. We round up the must-visit beach clubs and speak to beach-ex­per t Ralph Nader to ex­plore how much the in­dustr y has changed since his grand­fa­ther opened Saint Ge­orge, the first beach club in Le­banon, way back in 1936. One reader, Jane Glea­son takes us of f the beaten track to see the other side of Jezzine and an ec­centr ic’s palace. We take a look at the r ising trend of agr icul­tural tour ism and ex­plore the newly-de­vel­oped food her itage trail, Darb el Karam, tak­ing vis­i­tors into the farms and homes of ru­ral res­i­dents. We meet ar tists with a pas­sion for the Le­banese land­scapes, from renowned pho­tog­ra­pher Cle­ment Tan­nour i’s aer ial per­spec­tive and painter Chaouki Chamoun’s beloved Mount San­nine, to the pot­ter y of Bk­erzay. In the city, map­ping com­pany Zawarib takes us on an ur­ban trail of Hamra and we sip cof fee un­der the sun drenched skies in the city’s best out­door cafes. Ex­plore the countr y’s di­verse ex­per iences and des­ti­na­tions and find your sum­mer hol­i­day closer to home.
