I'm going to be spending about 6/7 weeks in Lebanon this summer starting the end of June, to improve my Arabic at a course and see as much as I can of the city and ideally some of the country. I've arranged a place through AirBnB, and have my flights booked and course chosen, but in terms of traveling, I'd really appreciate some recommendations of places to see and visit, stuff to do, etc. I'm considering looking at volunteering a bit, but I'm quite keen on finding some good places…
Last summer I traveled to Lebanon and received a one month visa on arrival. If I revisit Lebanon this summer will I still be eligible for a new visa on arrival, or would I need to request one beforehand?
I'm planning a trip to Lebanon and keen to visit the Baatara Gorge. Is the waterfall likely to be active in May? Information online suggests it's only active during snow melts around March/April time.
I'm Judith, a french expat living in Lebanon since 4 years. I'm a rescuer for stray abused dogs and today i really need your help for a very special case!
Few mouths ago, i saved an abused dog.The dog is now named HERO, he is a 3 legged mix boxer.
He was horribly abused in Lebanon, he is traumatized and nobody want to adopt him in Lebanon because he is 3 legged ( because of the abuses!).
I never find any suitable forever home for him, except in the US where an amazing lady will…
Hi all, Since i'm coming back to lebanon after 10y, although spending only few days in Beirut, this time i will be with my wife, coeliac, so i'd be glad to get some tips about lebanese restaurants informed about coeliac disease and able to prepare gluten free breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Thank you in advance
I and a friend plan to do a 1 week backpacking tour in Lebanon. We heard that transportation is not easy to find and taxis are very expansive. We try to do a budget tour.
a) are there busses or trains from international airport to Beirut city?
b) can I go by bus the following places (how can I find the busstation/Name and so on...) if bus not possible how much a taxi might charge?
c) do you know hostels at these places to recommend?
day 1 Beirut
day 2 Beirut - Baalbek
day 3 Baalbek
I know you're getting question along the lines of "Is it safe in Lebanon?" all the time, I'm not gonna ask that!
I know you're also getting questions about the garbage situation, and sorry to say I have a question about that!
I'm planning on spending 5 weeks in Beirut this summer, studying Arabic. Or rather, maintaining my Arabic during the summer break, as I study it at university during the semesters. And also experience the beautiful country/people/food as well of course!
As far as…
I am planning a trip to Beirut hopefully next month, is the visa upon arrival still available? I am aware of the visa that can be obtain previously. What is the situation and process on entrance?
Hope you are well :-)
I have always dreamed about visiting Beirut and surroundings. It´s been part of my memories as a kid when some of my relatives used to tell me stories about Lebanon and how modern and full of life the Lebanese capital was. [Not to mention that the Lebanese people are by far one of the most beautiful people in the world... almost like 'beautiful and Lebanese' being the best example of 'pleonasm']
