lebanonLebanon is located in Western Asia and is also considered as a middle-eastern country due to its main language being Arabic and its involvement in the regional politics. French language is still spoken in some circles but the English language is gaining popularity. The country enjoys a coastline and border of about 140 miles on the Mediterranean Sea to the west, and attracts millions of tourists due to places of historical interest and scenic landscape. Its capital is Beirut, sprawled beautifully on the hills alongside the coast. In the absence of a proper census since 1936, the population of Lebanon was estimated to be 4,125,247 in July 2010.
