My husband and I are travelling to see my relatives in Lebanon and I need to take gifts with me. I have a very large family over there so I need to keep things reasonably priced and packable of course. My father suggested honey as he said it was very expensive there (?). But I would love anyone to let me know what your thoughts are as I am a little bit stumped.
Hi, could anybody give some tips how to plan a short trip to Beirut? I just want to see something outside Europe, some good food, good drinks and good music. Thanks,
Hi, I want to travel to Lebanon next year as my grandparents are from there and I have some distant relatives still there. I am Australian and in March 2013 I visited Israel as my wife is Bahai and she wanted to visit some of the holy sites in Haifa. I read that having a recent stamp on my passport showing that I have travelled to Israel may complicate my ability to get a VISA into Lebanon, is this true? Any advice as to how I can work around this?
I'm planning a trip to visit Lebanon at the end of December. I'm going with my bf who is a Lebanese citizen and will be staying with him and his family in Saida and also visiting Beirut. However, the US embassy has issued a travel warning for all US citizens against travel to Lebanon, which is making me second guess the trip.
I just wanted to know any other personal opinions of how safe they felt visiting there. I'm also blonde, which makes me feel I will stand out. Will there be issues? Or since I'll be visiting with other Lebanese people, will I be okay? My bf and his family assure me everything is fine, but I would like some opinions from others who were tourists.
I'm thinking of visiting Lebanon in January 2014. It seems Beirut and the Christian areas directly to the east and north are safe for a blonde American like myself. What about places like Baalbek, Tyre, and Sidon? I'm most interested in the famous tourist sites; are those safe for Americans, even if they lie in Shia or Sunni areas? Even if the sites themselves are safe, are the roads through the Bekaa or areas south of the Litani River risky?
Also, I'll most likely be traveling alone, and my last name is vaguely Jewish. I haven't read anything suggesting that would be a problem, but I'm totally ok with cutting out a piece of the trip to limit any possibly unpleasant run-in with a Hezbollah checkpoint, or something like that.
Me and my girl friend want to spend some time in a nice relaxing hotel. Is it possible or we have to be married and show some kind license? Or do hotels overlook such law and turn a blind eye.
