      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 :)

      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

      How safe is it now (September 2015)?

      Beirut 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 There are lots of out-of-date official warnings, and also a lot of comments from people who report how it was several years ago.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.

      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

      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!

      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!
