How Did Kfardebian Turn into The “2024 the Arab Winter Resort Capital”?

Kfardebian was named final week the “2024 Arab Winter Resort Capital” throughout a ceremony held on the Mzaar ski slopes and attended by the Saudi Ambassador, Lebanon’s Tourism Minister and naturally representatives from the Kfardebian municipality. The designation was made by the Arab Tourism Group, a corporation derived from the Arab Ministerial Council for Tourism, and specialised in selling and creating Arab tourism.

The ATO relies in Saudi Arabia and consists of 22 Arab nations: Jordan, UAE, Bahrain, Tunisia, Algeria, Gibouti, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Somalia, Iraq, Oman, Palestine, Comoros, Qatar, Kuwait, Lebanon, Egypt, Lybia, Morocco, Mauritania and Yemen.

How was Kfardebian chosen?

There’s little doubt that Kfardebian is Lebanon’s greatest and hottest winter resort, however does that make it the very best within the Arab World? And the way did it win this nomination?

The reply, in keeping with the Arab Tourism Group, is that this city “possesses probably the most in depth ski slopes within the Center East. It has a various hospitality sector together with resorts starting from 3 to five stars, guesthouses, Airbnb, chalets, and youth hostels that accommodate snowboarding teams”. It additionally has a number of eating places providing Lebanese delicacies in its authentic kind alongside international cuisines and eating places and naturally a vibrant evening life. Add to that the archaeological websites across the city, specifically the Faqra temple and the 200 million years previous pure stone bridge.

Whereas all that is true, there are different standards which the group takes into consideration for nominating cities, together with tourism infrastructure, tourism assets and administration, which aren’t superb, to say the least, in Kfardebian however they might have been higher than different competing cities or cities for all we all know. Talking of which, I researched to see which different nations have ski resorts and solely discovered two in Morocco (Oukaïmeden) and Algeria (Chrea), that are each members of the ATO. Nevertheless, from the appears of it, the resorts are usually not as developed as Mzaar.

This being mentioned, Kfardebian is rightfully the Arab Winter Resort Capital for now, within the hopes that the municipality and the involved ministries will work on bettering the awful roads resulting in it and different imminent issues. Extra importantly, we’d like a severe plan to cease the desertification of Lebanon in any other case we gained’t be getting any snow to start with.
