If you are like old pictures and videos of Lebanon, then Kheireddine El-Ahdab is the man to follow. He always shares the most amazing old videos and pictures of Beirut and Lebanon and his latest is this amazing 5-minute high quality video shot in Beirut and Lebanon in the 1960s. The video is from the AP archives and was taken from the movie 24 hours to kill.

You can easily spot the old Beirut airport, Phoenicia hotel, Excelsior and St George hotel, the Casino du Liban and other landmarks. Check out the video [here].

Who Offers Guided Walking Tours In Beirut?

20150501_131425

Update: WalkBeirut is not organizing walks at the moment.

One of my favorite things to do in Beirut is walk around and discover new streets, old houses and hidden spots. I always have people ask me about the location of some of the pictures I take while I’m walking around Achrafieh, Mar Mikhael or Gemmayze and I always thought it would be a nice idea to organize walks around Beirut and let tourists and locals discover the old parts of Beirut like they’ve never seen them before.

For those interested, there’s WalkBeirut, which is run by AUB graduates, and offers guided walking tours of Beirut, and there’s also Beirut Old City Walk which is run by Elie Karam who take tourists on walks and shows them Beirut’s old hidden gems. Elie’s next walk is scheduled for May 24. WalkBeirut is obviously the better choice if you want a professional well-guided tour, but I’ve read testimonials on Elie’s Facebook page and most of them loved the experience and found him funny so I think both of them are worth a try, specially that they cover different areas.

In fact, Beirut old city walk covers Achrafieh and Burj Hammoud areas while WalkBeirut‘s stops are mostly around DownTown Beirut and Kantari area. The ticket prices are respectively $15 and $20 excluding food.

If you know other people or organizations who offer walking tours, I will gladly share them.

Follow Haig Melikian: A Lebanese-Armenian Who Loves Biking And Nature

If you like biking and nature, Haig Melikian is definitely someone worth following in Lebanon. I’ve been following Haig since Day1 and I love all his pictures. Whether it’s really hot or freezing cold, Haig is always on his bike and sharing the most amazing pictures wherever he goes. His videos are also pretty cool.

I used to love biking during spring and I remember we used to take trips from Hrajel to Afka where the cave and the waterfalls are. It’s a lot of fun and makes you discover amazing places in Lebanon. Unfortunately, it’s been a while since I went on a bike trip and seeing Haig’s pictures makes me miss it more.

I shared some of Haig’s pictures below (with his permission of course), and you can check out his profile [here].
