Hi everybody! I'll be visiting Beirut in June for a couple of days and since Im a great fan of Arabic especially Lebanese artists like Najwa Karam, Julia Boutros, Magida el Roumi and of course the legendary Fairouz I would like to check out if by chance any of them is giving concerts at the time of my stay in Beirut. The problem is that it's difficult to find reliable info in English on venues and events. I checked TimeOut Beirut but it didnt prove very helpful. Anybody knows other source of whats happening in Beirut concert scene?
Fellas and Gals, I am planning to travel to Lebanon early August of this year with an American friend. Assuming we don't go close to the borders, how safe would my American friend be at the moment? I would like him to have the time of his life there. Unfortunately ... I've heard rather concerning stories about recent kidnapping trends which seem fairly exaggerated. However, it's difficult for me to filter out information since I have been living abroad for some time now. Thank you heaps! Any input is greatly appreciated.
I am planning to visit Batroun for a wedding end of August. I need some recommendation for lodging and travel since I would like to stay for a week without being a headache for my friends :)
Any ideas are welcome.
