Traveling to Beirut
Ah, Beirut. What an interesting city ('interesting' to be defined as you please).
If Beirut is home and you come back every year, then you know what we mean. If you're a Beirut-lover coming in from the Gulf, you probably also know what we mean. If you're a foreigner moving to Beirut soon, you'll figure it out soon enough.
Let's just say that Beirut is a city that never ceases to keep you on the tippiest tips of your toes.
From new food concepts popping up monthly (now it's all about those burger and bbq joints), to electronic-music-filled rooftops and unmissable weekly parties, (to scattered political unrest), to beaches in the North and South that will seriously make you question if the South of France is really that much better, and to a plethora of great local fashion designers and stores.
Shopping Local in Beirut
We know that when you come to Beirut, between family and friends and all those outings, your time is very limited. So when you do have some spare time to shop, be sure to use it wisely. Yes there's Beirut Souks and ABC, but the majority of the the brands you find there, you can find wherever you go.
There is so much more local fashion to discover than you may think. The local fashion scene is growing every single year and so is the demand for unique local products. You really have got to get up-to-date on all of that. This applies to both men and women by the way.
