      Lebanon Mar 23, 2014 at 3:28 PM

      Hi I have always been extremely interested in visiting the sights of Lebanon and doing some partying in Beirut but I am Jewish with extensive Israeli stamps in my Passport. I understand I would need a new passport I was just curious if I do get a new passport and my last name is pretty unjewish do I still risk getting in massive trouble? Do most Lebanese even care if you are Jewish?

      Hi, Just planning my trip, and I want to make sure that I am buying the right power adapters for my electronic devices. There are 4 different types that I have found in stores here. The "US" two prong, the "AU" two prong on an angle, The "EU" with two little pointy things, and the "UK with two sideways prongs and a plastic stick in the bottom? Which one should I buy? Thanks :)

      Visiting Zahle.

      Lebanon Jan 16, 2014 at 7:26 PM

      Hi,
      I am a Canadian woman who has never really travelled anywhere. My husband has been in Zahle for 4 months ( his father died suddenly) and he will have to remain there until we are able to get him permits to return to Canada where we live. I have plans to surprise him for his birthday in the middle of February.

      1.) Is Zahle safe for me to go to?
      2.) Is it hard to get through the airport being an english (petite peu francais et sway lebinin) speaking woman with little travel experience? I keep hearing about having to pay people money to not get hassled?
      3.) I have blonde hair, snow white skin - friends here in Canada are telling me that I have to make sure I cover up as much as possible to not draw any attention. Is that true?
      4.) How much money should I bring to live/travel with the understanding that I am staying at his family home and lodging/food should be covered? I am not planning to go sight seeing this trip. I just want to spend a couple weeks with my husband. (I plan to return, if he is not home in July as well)

      Thank you for any advice you can offer.

      Hello,
      My wife and I are planning to take a spontaneous trip to celebrate our anniversary and we are considering going to Beirut.
      Is the winter a good time to come to Lebanon? Will there be other European tourists? Also because of the dangerous situation in Lebanon I want to know if it is still ok for tourists to come.
      Thank you!

    • Are fears real?

      Lebanon Jan 5, 2014 at 7:43 AM

      My sister and I are thinking of visiting Lebanon in early June to do missionary work with Heart for Lebanon. I asked a question a couple of weeks ago about traveling to Lebanon and working with this group. Given the responses received, i felt comfortable about going on the trip. In light of the recent violence in Lebanon (the assassination and car bomb attack) I am feeling very reluctant about the trip. My sister still wants to go, hoping the violence will subside by this summer. Of course no one can predict the future, but I was wondering if those of you who said it was safe a couple of weeks ago still feel the same? Do you expect things will get worse before it gets better. We are praying for you! Any advise or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

    • About to travel to Beirut, is it safe to go?

      Beirut Dec 19, 2013 at 8:26 AM

      Hey all! So I am doing an internship/exchange program in Beirut from Christmas to late Jan. I have been closely watching the news, and in contact with the lead of the program, and he has assured me the media is exaggerating the dangers of Lebanon right now. I am a young American women who has been learning Arabic for the past three years. I am wondering if there is anything I should know about living in Beirut for a month/ safe travel around the country during this time, and even wondering if I should actually go at this point - my mother is worried, and it is making me worried!

      Thank you!

    • Safety Question For US Citizen

      Lebanon Dec 4, 2013 at 2:33 PM

      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.

    • Recently travelled to Haifa, Israel and now want to go to Lebanon

      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?

    • Visiting Lebanon beyond Beirut

      Lebanon Nov 10, 2013 at 12:54 PM

      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.
