In an article on Businessnews, Wissam Zaarour, member of the municipal council of the city, explained that Jbeil competed with seven Arab cities including Abha in KSA, and Al Sharjah in the UAE. The Council assessed these achievements, the restaurant and hotel platform offered by the city, as well as its touristic infrastructure, he said.“We are expecting a 30 percent increase in the number of tourists,” he said. They aim to host five-star international hotel chains that are up to the standards of the city, according to Zaarour.
 
Now is a good time to watch the special Mechwar episode on Jbeil, one of the world's oldest cities and discover all the best places to enjoy some good food and more.
