Beirut

Beirut is the perfect destination for seasoned travellers: here, East and West intertwine in intricate and fascinating ways, creating a city so magnetic few are able to resist its powerful draw. It's certainly true that much has changed over the latter half of the twentieth century – Beirut rising to become glitterati central in the 60s but falling from grace during the bloody Civil War – but the city is alive and kicking, enticing travellers with superb gastronomy, the Middle East's most vibrant nightlife and a close proximity to the ancient towns of Byblos and Baalbek.

Yanbu

Yanbu has long been known as little more than an industrial centre with a busy port, but with some of the country's best diving spots and ever more luxury resorts in the area, it is quickly transforming into a coveted vacation destination. The desert beaches are beautiful, captivating and solitary enough to make your visit a unique experience. There has never been a better time visit, as the crowds have not yet caught on to this emerging city, and travelers can still have huge expanses of pristine beach all to themselves.
