Favorite thing: Granted that Lebanon is the most heavily-densed populated country in the middle east, and sometimes it's hard to figure out where one city ends and another start... the northern you go, the more "typically" traditional Middle Eastern the towns appear. Tripoli is a world apart from Beirut

Fondest memory: Colourless - but fascinating in its own way. I only visited Tripoli in the north, and I liked it a lot. I liked the atmosphere of orderly chaos, the smells in the souks, and the friendliness of the people. There's an air of peace that's quite unique

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
