Little countries for a big trip (someday)
Some of the smallest countries in the world pack the biggest punch

LEBANON

How tiny is it: 10,400km2

Or roughly: Eight times smaller than the UAE With dramatic snow-capped peaks and a coastline that shimmers like the Côte d’Azur, you won’t find a better slice of land in the Middle East. Time it right and you can spend your morning shredding nearperfect snowpack at a Swissstyle ski resort, then cruise back down the mountain for an afternoon dip in the Mediterranean. Visitors can expect cosmopolitan cities, fantastic food, and an ancient wine-growing culture. Beirut channels both the seaside glitz of Miami and the leafy, walkable charm of southern Europe, with sidewalk cafes, boutiques, and one of the world’s most notorious nightlife scenes.

SLOVAKIA

How tiny it is: 49,035km2
