Sitting on the Mediterranean coast, Beirut, the country's capital and largest city, has plenty of appeal itself, as well as offering a convenient base for exploring the country's other sights and cities.
Change things up with these side-trips from Beirut: Our Lady of Lebanon (in Harissa) and Byblos (Old Souk, Byblos Castle, & more). There's still lots to do: explore the fascinating underground world of Jeita Grotto, indulge your senses at some of the top wineries in the area, explore the striking landscape at Pigeon Rocks in Raouche, and get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Beirut.

For maps, reviews, more things to do, and other tourist information, read Beirut road trip planner .

Karachi, Pakistan to Beirut is an approximately 8-hour flight. You'll gain 3 hours traveling from Karachi to Beirut due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Karachi in September, expect nights in Beirut to be about the same, around 28°C, while days are little chillier, around 36°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Fri) early enough to go by car to Baalbeck.
