Women Travellers

Lebanon is a relatively easy destination for solo female travellers. Western-style clothes are common in Beirut, and revealing beach wear is acceptable in the beach clubs that line the sands from Saida up to Byblos. However, modest clothing is recommended for areas outside Beirut and the beach. In mosques or religious sites, women should cover their shoulders and heads, and avoid wearing shorts or short skirts. In taxis, it's best to sit in the back seat.
