What to see

Lebanon Traveler - - REGION THROUGH AN ARTIST’S EYES -

De­spite the chang­ing face of Raouché, it re­mains one of Beirut’s most charm­ing ar­eas. Look out for the old light­house and ad­mire the stun­ning Rose House, sur­rounded by re­gal palms. Ex­plore the old fair­ground Luna Park, straight out of the ‘50s, and stop for a po­laroid in front of the iconic Pigeon Rocks. Af­ter­wards, visit Souf­fleur (01 365313), the mu­seum of fish­er­man-turned-col­lec­tor Ibrahim Na­jem. His col­lec­tion in­cludes over 30,000 pieces, from an­tique ri­fles to old div­ing suits.
