"Benghazi, Libya" Benghazi by PelLihi
Benghazi Travel Guide: 68 reviews and 327 photos
I had to go to Benghazi due to a business trip. I was very excited in the beginning, because I've never been to Africa before.
After my visit I can say, that I've never seen a dirtier place in my hole life. Women have no rights at all in this country (their husbands take their passports so they can't travel!!!). Therefore I wouldn't recommend Benghazi as a tourist destination in the first place.
The good thing was, that I met some very nice people there. Greetings to Yazan, Nassif and Essam if you read this.
Additionally it was a valuable lesson for me, to see how people live over there and with what kind of problems they have to deal. It makes me feel guilty for complaining about my life in Austria - this trip has defenitely opened my eyes.
I met great people when I visited Benghazi. One of them was this guy - Yazan.
And I guess he has some obsession for sex?! ;-))
Here are some of the people from our company.
Yazan, Nassif, Essam, Gago, Gerhard, Herbert,...
- Pros:Nice people, warm climate
- Cons:Dirt, Smell, Human rights situation
- In a nutshell:Not the premium destination - but a valuable impression
The city is extremely dirty and smells awful. The people throw their garbage out of the car (in big bags) while driving... more travel advice
Some of the roads are in a very bad condition. So if you really want to drive yourself, be careful. The traffic is bad... more travel advice
