Hi there! My boyfriend is currently in Lebanon for work and is trying to convince met to visit him in January 2017 but I am extremely worried about safety. I know the media blows everything out of proportion but I can't help to be concerned, I'll be flying there and back by myself. Can anyone provide any insight into the safeness of Lebanon and safety tips? Thank you :)
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'm in love with lambchops and planning to go gourmet and street style......suggestions anyone? Shukran :)
I will be working in Lebanon in the near future so I would like to get some basics of Lebanese Arabic. I am bit worried about cost of life in Beirut, does anyone know about Lebanese courses out of Beirut?

I want to come to lebanon , and bring my car , what documents i need ? Can i bring the car by ship and come by plane ?
Can anyone recommend an agent or expert in this clearance work ?
With my wife we will stay a full week in Lebanon, and to return home the 2nd Desember.
I am not sure about the best way to visit the country.
Lebanon Tours & Travel offer a private day tour, different each day. 140 - 150 US$. In that case you must sleep every day in Beirut.
Some other option to enjoy the country? Do you know an driver-guide (english) to go around?
Hotel in Beirut: perhaps Gems or MayFlower are reasonable options (good rate price/quality)? Any other acommodation?
Thanks for any advice

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 There are lots of out-of-date official warnings, and also a lot of comments from people who report how it was several years ago.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.
Pls Suggest restaurants for Vegeterians nearby to Hamra Street

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".

We are a british living in Oman and would like to bring the children to Mzaar for skiing. I cant find any updated info on travel to Lebanon. Any advice? Also, transport from airport, do you suggest booking a driver z( through hotel) taxi or hire car. Thanks in advance
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
I'm from the Philippines and I'm planning to travel to Lebanon on Jan 26 to February 13, 2015 to attend a seminar. What is the updated travel advisory? Is it really dangerous right now? The places I plan to visit are Sid El-Bouchrieh and Mar Elias in Beirut. Advises from citizens and tourists who have visited Lebanon lately are much appreciated. 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.
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!
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.
I'm staying in Monteverde during October 5th, I'd like to know the most recommended around this region:
2. clubs ( Arabic music is preferred)
Anyone an idea where I can find a good Lebanese restaurant in Beirut? Our hotel is in the Verdun area. Many thanks!!
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!
