Lebanon is a study in contrasts. The small nation sits on the western edge of the Asian continent but maintains a strong European flavor as well. Once known as the Switzerland of the Middle East because of the way its diverse peoples lived in harmony, it descended into decades of Civil War beginning in the 1970s from which it is just now emerging. Equally, its physical landscape shows great contrasts, from the cycles of violence which have scarred Beirut to the beautiful Mediterranean beaches to desert to the magnificent mountains and highlands which are not far removed from its coastal areas. Here are the best drone videos from this ancient land, which has been inhabited by humans for many thousands of years.
