From aiport to city centrum there may not be a bus service, the Taxi service is good and cheap it costs 20 Dinars and safe but negoaite the price before the journey, Taxis are colored black and white these are officially liscened taxis. there are private car owners who operate as taxis also, but dont have the black and white colored Taxis. From Tripoli to Sabratha 70 Km west, yes there are buses that operate on this route the station is in Tripoli city centrum near the Corientaia hotel these are 8 passenger buses, ask for Sabratha at the bus station cost around 5 dinars one way. At the same station you can get the bus for Leptis Magna known locally as Alkoums that is the city where Leptis is located 140 Km east of Tripoli. Ghadamous as the roman call it also you can get the bus from the same station south west Aprox 600 Km. There is also another Bus Station for Coaches or shuttle its in Tripoli Dahra area usally for long distance travel operated by official state company. So yes there are two fixed stations. The bus sation near the Corintia hotel the buses are parked on the side of the road and that is the station an open road.

Travel Tips for Tripoli

Getting around, just for help. . .

by kokoryko

I found one map only of Tripoli, which covers only the city centre. I did not use it (there are mistake, like the location of the big Mosque); I used a A3 print of a satellite image (Google Earth), to find may way, but generally I went where my feet took me, and just used the image to go back to the hotel at night. I have indicated a few spots I visited on the maps, it may help to get around if it happens one of the readers goes to Tripoli. . .

Tricky one this, there are so...

by cuxster

Tricky one this, there are so many special places of interest. You must see the Old town and the Souk, but also get out into the desert and see the Roman Ruins at Sabratha and Leptis Magna. Sitting under the huge palm trees on a hot summer evening at a little cafe just outside the souk drinking green tea and smoking a shisha pipe... about as good as it gets!

Any day on the Expat beach at Friendship Village.

You must see the Green Square,...

by akakusflower

You must see the Green Square, the museum, the souk, Gargaresh, Regata, Colline Verde, the port and his fish market's.
If you like fish, there is a good place, on Gargaresh, the name is Dentice. You can ask for Hicho or Youssef.
There is an other, always for fish, near the see, and near the Beach Hotel Annex.
As hotel, this Beach Hotel Annex is very ship, and the people is very nice.

The Lider Maximo is everywhere !

by kokoryko

Political rulers exercising cult of personality are on the way of extinction, but here, in Tripoli, the dinosaur is a very resisting one, and he shows up everywhere on any occasion.
On the first picture one you see him in the Bordj al Fatah tower commercial centre, wearing a very smart white dress, raising his revolutionary fist, displayed in a very tasteful tile work.
On picture 2, he is in front of Idriss’s palace, raising again his fist, wearing a nice modern desert keffiah above a map of the great Arab Nation.
Picture 3 shows our leader at Algeria square (from far, sorry), looking for a bright future besides a map of whole Africa, as he always communicates his love for all his African brothers (he even visited them, in the south, in Chad, without being asked, by surprise, in 1980).
He is waiting early morning at the entrance of the Medina, celebrating 36 years of Jamahiriya, waving at all visitors who will come to the Medina on picture 4.
He is watching everything is going well in the port on picture5.
Well, a bit sarcastic, but I am not used to have a guy watching me all times where ever I go and the local population, I do not really know how they receive these messages, may be they do not really care, it is part of the landscape to have these displays everywhere. Funny, in some way. . .

Algeria Square

by iwys

Algeria Square, or Maidan al-Jezayir, is one of the nicest places to sit and relax in Tripoli. There is a traditional cafe serving tea and coffee on one side of the square from which you can see the grand Italian colonial buildings, like the former cathedral. It is much less hectic here than in the Medina.
