someplace I never figured I would visit but interesting nonetheless. The business visa process was relatively simple despite having to travel from HK to Beijing to get it.
Despite rumours to the contrary, clearing customs at the airport was uneventful
Tripoli was more affluent than I expected and had a well-preserved walled city with some incredibly hospitable people.
I got the impression you could travel most anywhere in Libya, most of what I read online prior to my trip made me believe everything must be by guided tour.
I believe Libya will open up in the next few years and be a beach holiday resort with some historical places to visit, desert treks etc
Had one day free from work and visited Leptis Magna, these Roman ruins were impressive with very few other tourists there.
USD 40 taxi there and back who waited 2.5 hours for us at the site. Well worth it, unique place.
the baked goods were excellent, the seafood was quite good and most else was the standard grilled chicken and kebabs.
- Pros:genuinely hospitable people, no other tourists, great sights
- Cons:visa hassle, over-priced hotels, creaky infra-structure
- In a nutshell:met some people I really liked; saw some fabulous sights
