Go north from Chtaura to Ablah. From there
take a right turn to Rayak. This small town is the site of the
Lebanese Army and Air Force base. It was also once a
railroad terminal, the oldest in the Middle East. The now
rusted and abandoned terminal buildings give Rayak the feel of
a tpwn put of America's Old West.
A popular restaurant near the railroad
terminal makes a good stop for lunch or dinner.
