maxresdefaultHamra Street is a busy street in Beirut, Lebanon and now the tourism is gearing with the hotels and the night life.



Named as Rue 31, Hamra Street was once dominated by war and the military artillery, but now the tourism industry rebounds, though the Middle East and its neighbours are engulfed with wars, anarchy and the political discontent. It was just four years ago when Lebanon witnessed the bloodshed wars and became the pandemonium. Syria and Iran are now blazing with the religious and civil battles and in the midst; Lebanon becomes optimist with the growing secondary and the tertiary industries.



Lebanon is now looking after the development in infrastructure during the post war period and the people visiting this place for the lively nightlife, cafes and restaurants filled with smoked chicken and the Lebanese delicacies.



Now the hotel occupancy in Lebanon is raising high up to 65 percent in this summer. Previously, when the civil war ended in 1990, the tourism reached up by 25 percent. The passenger arrivals at Beirut–Rafic Hariri International Airport have increased about 24,000 during the Eid-ul-fitr festival this year. In 2016, the number of arrivals is 19000.



But Lebanon also has the slight limitation as the unrest happened in 2015, with the national shortage of water and electricity, trash in collection services and the scarcity of good jobs. But this year, tourism here is flourishing the tourism sector will compete with the other countries like Egypt, Turkey and Arabic countries, France and Europe.
