Boomtown Beirut

Beirut has always stood its ground as a kind of playground for Arabs and Europeans in search of oriental liberality. With a return to gradual political stability and considerable economic investments, Beirut recently seems to be back on the map. The enormous cultural diversity and liberalness bring along a vibrant mix of lifestyles on one hand but with the conjunct slight lawlessness also entail noumerous socio-political problems on the other hand.
