Travel with Respect

Lebanon is a country of many different religious sects. It is recommended to wear modest clothing when visiting religious sites (mosques, churches, etc) and when visiting rural towns and villages. However, Beirut is very much a cosmopolitan city. Clothing considered 'western' is generally acceptable, but Westerners would probably feel more comfortable in Beirut, Mount Lebanon, and along the coast, which is dotted with sea-resorts. In Tripoli, especially in the old city, it is recommanded that women dress conservatively. The same applies on most traditional'souks" in the country. The Southern Suburb of Beirut, known as 'Al-Dahiye' in Arabic, is a Hizbolla stronghold and hence there too it would be advisable that women travellers dress modest. In general, Lebanese are accustomed to different lifestyles and some do not take offence easily, especially with matters related to dress. Other will.

Travel Safe

The political situation in Lebanon remains unstable after the "Cedar Revolution" (Syrian withdrawal) of 2005 and the Israeli invasion of 2006. Innocent bystanders have been killed by bombings and assassination attempts directed at politicians, and in Israeli bombing attacks on Hezbollah strongholds. Rallies and demonstrations are common and occasionally - as in any country - turn violent. Land mines and unexploded ordinance, a legacy of the lengthy civil war, can still be found in some areas. It is recommended you enquire about the political situation in the country before visiting. Currently there are a number of open internal conflicts that pose extreme danger for tourists.Useful phone numbers: Police: 112 Fire brigade: 175 The Red Cross (Medic Response): 140 Directory Inquiry: 120
