Despite the regions insecurities, Lebanon is still expecting tourism this summer, and for those visiting and locals alike there are plenty of options to visit beyond the obvious tourist attractions. The Daily Star has put together a list of five places and events to check out in Lebanon this summer. It began a few years ago with Souk El Tayeb, the regular open-air farmers' market found every Saturday at the Beirut Souks.Summer in Beirut means the opening of various outdoor venues, with one of the most popular being The Garten by uberhaus.With beach clubs up and down the country charging an average of $20 and above to gain access to what many see as a public right, plenty of locals and foreigners alike will instead opt to head down south to Tyre's public beach.Free to access, the public beach at Tyre is huge, spacious and, most importantly, clean with sand that opens out onto crystal-clear water. A popular family destination, Tyre's beach will be fairly busy during the summer months but its sand and sea are well worth visiting.For fish lovers, the restaurants along the shore in Tyre also boost some of the best fish in the country.
