"The political situation was..." Lebanon Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Lutz_H

Lebanon Warnings and Dangers: 36 reviews and 16 photos


The political situation was still unstable when I visited Libanon in '98. I have to admit that I didn't follow the country's development since but I would recommend to ask, for instance at the rental car counter, if there are still areas you shouldn't go to - if they don't tell you anyway. We were advised to stay away from certain parts of the country and could hear - not quite following that recommendation - gun shots from the fighting Syrian and Israelian army. Make sure you don't have a stamp from a previous visit to Israel in your passport which would probably keep you from being allowed to enter the country.
The attached picture is not meant to be a warning - I didn't have any problems at any times - just an 'official statement', found roadside.
