The Top Ten

Beirut is absolutely the best city in the Middle East.. Hospitality, Nightlife, Beaches, International food... Its the Paris of the Middle east!
I totally agree... A city that is modern and antique at the same time! I simply love the city because it's a city that is very charming. Definitely a city everyone should visit in a lifetime.. Try to be more original and try Beirut instead of Paris!
Lebanese wife... Best food in the region, most beautiful coastline that I've ever seen, gorgeous mountains, and food that will redefine your religious beliefs.

This system is easy to install on your own because it is totally wireless. I installed my system 18 months and love the ability to see what is going on when I am away. The options that are available with this system cover all the issues that can occur... frozen pipes, water damage, fire as well as break ins. The video monitoring is an added level of security that allows you to view your property from any where via PDA (smart phone) or computer. The customer support is top rate, I had questions with some of the available features and found the customer support team to be very patient and made sure all my questions were answered and stayed on the phone with me until I fully understood my options. Front Point Security is the best!
Truly amazing! Well worth your money! I really wich I could go back soon! The people there are generally quite nice and the cityscape is overwhelming!
It's the very best!

Istanbul is an old city! And does have this days a lot of world wide business companies! In addition that it's have the best climate in middle east, and it's are a nationalities Complex! And we can not deny the nightlife in Istanbul! Also it is the 2nd largest city in the world with 13 million population!, and The best and the modernest transportation linking their parts to each other! And rather than that it's a Complex between East and West, and the more you search the more you get about Istanbul! As Napoleon said, "If the world was a single state, Istanbul were the capital"
