      Any suggested accommodation in quiet/cool mountain areas closer to Beirut?

      Lebanon Jul 25, 2015 at 4:24 AM

      Going to spend the coming week in Beirut, but want to get out of the city for some nights.

      Wondering if you have some good ideas for affordable accommodation for 2 (possible 3) adults + 1 child (10y)
      "Bed and breakfast" preferable. As long as it is clean, we will not be demanding.
      I would be happy if you could message me contact info to the owner, if it isn't suitable to post it on the forum.

      Ehden/Bscharre has been on the list, but I am not sure if I am ready to go "that far".

      I am British living in Dubai and have heard skiing in Lebanon is great. I'd also like to visit Beirut as it seems such a beautiful city. Government websites say it's dangerous to travel to Lebanon right now, given the terrorist activity and bordering with Syria and Israel, but people have personally told me that they travelled there with no problems.
      How dangerous would it be for me to travel there right now? Many thanks

      Hello i am a black that live in USA. My boyfriend went back home to Lebanon and want me to visit. I would like to know if it is possible for us to stay in the same hotel room together? If so what list of hotels you would recommend? I heard Beirut is not to welcome toward black people. They view black women as house maid, and prostitute, is that true? What do I need to know as a black women traveling there. I will be with my boyfriend the whole time.

    • Thank you for your advices

      Lebanon Oct 24, 2014 at 12:49 AM

      We returned from 5 days Libanon. Thank you all for your advices. Bad experience with Nakhal, You can read it on Tripadvisor. Harissa wasn't our thing. We ate at Assi's, no alcohol, and the other days at Leila's, with alcohol.
      Strange that Lebanon is a dollar country. Even Byblos bank couldn't exchange a 50 euro note intor smaller pieces.
      Last day was at Rotana Gefinor's pool, St.George's had already closed.
      Great country, very nice people. We never felt insecure!

    • Enjoying the sun

      Lebanon Oct 12, 2014 at 10:44 AM

      Hello again. Next week we're in Beirut. We are glad that the main road in het Beka valley is no longer blocked so we can visit Baalbek on Monday.
      Now the question. On Tuesday we have no activity planned. If the weather is fine we would like to have a swim or to lounge somewhere near a pool. Do you have any suggestions? Hopefully something will be open since we are in October.
      Best regards!

    • What should we visit in Lebanon?

      Lebanon Aug 15, 2014 at 2:23 AM

      Hello again. As mentioned, in October we will be 3 full days in Beirut. One day we'll go to Anjar/Baalbek/Ksara, inshallah. One day we'll reserve for sun and sea if we are lucky. Remains the Sunday. It should be an organised tour unless it is a place nearby, then we can grab a taxi. What should we do: Byblos/Jeita/Harissa or Beiteddine/Deir el Qamar or Tyre/Sidon/Maghdouche. Or any other suggestions? It should be at least a safe place.
      Thank you in advance!

    • Situation in Baalbek/Anjar/Ksare

      Lebanon Aug 11, 2014 at 12:06 AM

      My wife and I will visit Lebanon in October for some days. I thought to visit Byblos and Harissa as well as Baalbek, Anjar and Ksare. As for the latter, I understand that nobody can tell me by now what the level of thread is in October. But hopefully someone can tell me how it is right now. I mean, are still lots of tourists visiting Baalbek despite all advises from governments? Are they travelling with a police escort (as in Egypt when visiting Luxor)? Are there no hostile activities in the past days?
      Second question, does the airport have ATM's where I can get my Lenabese pounds and are there enough in Beirut itself? Stupid question but you never know.
      Looking forward hearing from you.

      I'm planning to travel to Lebanon in August of 2014. I will be attending one of my good friend's wedding.

      I am not up to date on the political issues there but members of my family have warned me about potential bombings, etc... Is it really that dangerous right now? Are there areas to stay away from completely? My goal was to attend the wedding but I wanted to check out the local touristy spots and nightlife.

    • Vaccinations?

      Lebanon Jun 5, 2014 at 12:45 PM

      Hi all! I am going to Lebanon at the end of this month. The CDC recommends that I get vaccinated (Hepatitis A and Typhoid fever) before going, but i just found out that my health insurance won't cover these shots.

      It is going to cost me $200-300 to get vaccinated, and I am just trying to figure out if it is worth it. I don't know if these are actual risks in Lebanon. I am coming from the US and I eat pretty healthy here, so I don't want to spend my trip sick. But I also don't want to blow all my spending money on unnecessary shots.

      Please help! Thanks!
