  a view of Tyre

Favorite thing: Heading south of Beirut is an amazing trip into modern history. The farther south you go, the more you see and feel about the troubles in the middle east. UN army people become more and more common - and so do checkpoints. Once you reach Tyre you sometimes wonder if the UN people outnumber the local people

Fondest memory: It's my favourite part of Lebanon - vibrant - sadly still scarred from the recent political events. Tyre is absolutely wonderful and the village of Qana the saddest place (together with Mostar) that I have ever visited - and at the same time the place where I long to return: a real lesson in life.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
