Tripoli - Lebanon

Extracted from trip summary -

October 29, 2009 - Up early to drive to the caves at Jeita Grotto, some 20kms from Beirut. Visited the upper cave by cable car and then the lower cave. The drove to Harissa and took the cable car to the top of the hill to see Our Lady of Harissa statue. Great views from up here. Finally visited the ruins at Byblos before driving the 76 kms to Tripoli. Spent the night at the Quality Inn and had a Chinese meal at Chopstix Restaurant in town.

October 30, 2009 - Visited the Citadel in Tripoli town centre, before having a quick look around the souq and the Khan Al Saboun (soap souq). Bought a few traditionally made soaps here, as well as some traditional sweets from Hallab and Son in the centre. Drove to Bcharre to see the famous Cedars, before driving to Zahle to spend the night at the Grand Hotel Kadri.
