So, you've heard Beirut is one of the best cities in the world, and you plan on moving here, someday?

The good citizens that we are, we thought we should give you a heads up - in addition to a plethora (mhmmm) of great things here, there are some things you might not like. If a lot of these apply to you, well, Beirut might not be your city.

1. You are a member of Green Peace and love trees.

2. “Ya 7elo, fi minnak 3a Jello?” is not your idea of a cool pick-up line.

3. You like awakening to the sweet sounds of chirping birds.

4. Your ideal Friday night is monopoly and hot cocoa.

5. You think taxi drivers should be professional.

And they don’t stick their noses in other people’s businesses/ text while driving/ throw insults to the next driver across the street.


6. You believe hookah should be banned from all cafés.

7. Skiing and swimming on the same day has never appealed to you.

8. You don’t like to be cynical and make fun of everything.

Life should never be that serious, yo.


9. The sound of gunshots scare you

10. You want directions to include actual street names

11. Bearded people scare you.

13. You like weddings to be small and cozy.

14. You’re individualistic and private.

The waiter from Roadster should not know your name, family name, occupation and monthly income, but he probably does.


15. You love walking your dog in a park.

Scratch that, you love parks.


16. You like your menus to be written in proper English.



Yes, I'll take one falafel with a side of torture?


17. You prefer motorcycles to drive on roads, not sidewalks.

18. You don’t know Jackie, and you don’t want to strip for her.

19. You think Uruguay is just a country.

20. You look forward to a fat paycheck.

21. You are punctual and never late for appointments.

You expect the same in return.


22. You prefer weather with stability.

One day, it's freezing and the next day it's hot.
