What to do in Lebanon: The country with the most doctors in the world?

Lebanon is a country rich in history, diversity and natural beauty. Anchored between the Mediterranean Sea and the mountains of Lebanon, this nation holds wonders ranging from Phoenician ruins to vibrant modern metropolises.

The five must-see spots in Lebanon are: the capital Beirut, with its impressive contrast between ancient and modern; the magnificent ruins of Baalbek, a true testament to the grandeur of the Roman Empire; the port city of Byblos, considered one of the oldest in the world; the spectacular Kadisha Valley, home to ancient Christian monasteries; and the charming city of Sidon, with its seaside castle.

Regarding language and currency: the official language is Arabic, but French and English are widely spoken. The currency is the Lebanese Pound, and the good news is that Brazilians do not need a visa to visit Lebanon for up to 90 days! We arrived in the capital Beirut, ate the famous Lebanese esfihas and drove more than 180km across the country, visiting several cities and also going to the border with Syria. We also visited a beautiful museum with ancient artifacts.


Lebanon is a parliamentary republic, but has experienced a serious economic crisis in recent years, resulting in inflation and unemployment. The political situation is complex, with tensions existing between different ethnic and religious groups.

Traveling to Lebanon may be more affordable than you think, despite the recent economic crisis. Food, accommodation and transport costs vary, but you can find options for all budgets.


Now, the curiosity of the title: Lebanon has the highest density of doctors in the world. Medicine is one of the most prestigious careers in the country, and Lebanese doctors are known for their excellence, many of them trained in European and American institutions.
