Talk:Lebanon

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Amended the warning[edit]

The warning on top of the page was a bit over the top. Beirut is still largely safe, as is most of the country excluding border areas and Tripoli. People on TripAdvisor and Lonely Planet's ThornTree forum regularly report traveling to Beirut, Byblos, Sidon, Tyre and Baalbek with no bad experiences. While I noted that incidents have happened in some of these, the situation currently is not so dire that they can be considered seriously unsafe and one would have to be very unlucky to get caught up in something. In line with this I also expanded the Stay Safe section with info about some of the most visited sites.

Warning[edit]

Should the warning box be expired or updated at this point? Maj 14:43, 15 October 2006 (EDT)

Warning Box Updated[edit]

Changed the language of the warning box to better reflect the situation in Lebanon, and also the actual language of the State Department's travel warning to American citizens - Will Donovan [1]

Driving[edit]

It looks like this sessions has been written by someone angry with the country. I visited Lebanon, drove it from the northern tip to the southern tip and, despite agreeing that rules are not often followed, that we can get lost easily because of lack of signs and there is much traffic, the condition of the roads was excellent and does not match at all the description given on this page.


DRIVING[edit]

I HAVE TO AGREE. AS IT SAYS ABOVE, THE CONDITION OF THE ROADS IN LEBANON IS NOT THAT BAD, THEY'RE ACTUALLY IN PRETTY GREAT CONDITION BUT OF COURSE THERE ARE SOME EXCEPTIONS LIKE IN EVERY COUNTRY.

Regions[edit]

It says there are 6 regions of Lebanon, but only five are listed. It seems like Nabatieh is missing... What shall we do? Should it be incorporated as part of South Libanon (which would make 5 regions), or could it suffice as it's own region? Seeing the little amount of content, I think it's best to just include it with South. --globe-trotter 18:14, 5 January 2010 (EST)
