    • Black woman visiting Beirut in December

      by bugberry Online Now Nov 29, 2016 at 5:32 AM

      Hi all, I have a week-long trip planned for mid December.......actually Ill be spending my birthday in Beirut! Wondering if there are useful tips/guides on events and festivities I can do (solo). I'll like to know if going around town, sight seeing can be done conveniently by public transport/uber or I'm better off getting a car rental. I'm in love with lambchops and planning to go gourmet and street style......suggestions anyone? Shukran :)

      How safe is it now (September 2015)?

      by nostromo Online Now Sep 13, 2015 at 2:46 AM

      Considering a trip to Lebanon (based in Beirut) but I'm concerned about personal safety. There are lots of out-of-date official warnings, and also a lot of comments from people who report how it was several years ago. From what I know of Lebanon it should be a really interesting destination, but I need to know whether it is safe to go now.

      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.

      by MMSeattle Online Now 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!

      by berrylover Online Now Sep 26, 2013 at 12:06 PM

      We're planning a trip to Israel and Lebanon in Oct '13. The Travel Advisory for Lebanon is to avoid all travel. Yet I've seen reviews from people saying it's fine with a guide (which we'll have) and to avoid border towns. If any of you have traveled to Lebanon within the past month, we'd love to hear your experience/thoughts. Thank you!

    • 10 days trip to Beirut

      by Martine1510 Online Now Aug 31, 2013 at 10:04 AM

      Next week I will have my flight to Beirut for a short (10days) trip to visit Lebanon. Since the Dutch government changed their travel advice to Lebanon today I totally do not know what to do. The advice is now: all not-essential travels are discourgared. What do you think? Is it still safe to visit Beirut center and Byblos and some other place at the coast?
      I know that there are several warnings you have to take very serious but I also know that they are very fast with a very intens negative advice for a whole country even when the "problems" are located in certain areas.
      Hopefully you can give me some advice.

      Beirut Airport

      by NicolaiD Online Now Jun 4, 2013 at 11:48 PM

      Hi everyone!

      I'm planning on flying down to Beirut pretty soon, from June 14th-23rd. I wasn't especially worried about the safety issue until I read on the Norwegian Embassy site that roads to Beirut Airport were recently closed or can be closed on several occasions.

      Am I right to be worried, or is it just a case of keeping up with current events and staying away from the south?
