I really like Lebanon. It is a small, beautiful country. From Beirut you can make daytrips to most parts of the country. Lebanon has it all: The city, the beach, the mountains, many archaeological sites and friendly and helpful people.
I spent 20 days in Lebanon in June and August 2002, and a few days in June 2005.

I have made tips based on my experiences during my visits. I travelled alone and mostly used public transport. Prices mentioned are from June and August 2002 or June 2005. Hope my tips can be useful for others!

Places I have been to in Lebanon:

Beyrouth (Beirut)
Beit Mari
Broummana
Trablous (Tripoli)
Bcharre
The Cedars
Jbeil (Byblos)
Jounieh
Harissa
Jeita Grotto
Nahr al Kalb
Baalbek
Aanjar
Beit Ed Dine
Deir al Qamar
Saida (Sidon)
Sour (Tyre)
Beaufort Castle
Khiam
Qana

    Hello, I loved your page, it made me remamber all the good moments I spent in Lebanon. And one thing - well, unfortunately it's not just a story or bad luck - I'm polish and I also had problems with visa, it's very common with my friends too.
