Travel to Lebenon in end of Feb 2011

by aparnanagesh

My family with 2 kids are planning to travel to Lebenon in end of Feb 2011. I would like to know how the weather conditions would be in that time of the year since we will be travelling with a 9 month old baby. It is advisable to travel during this month.

Hello. Well as our VT friend told you the weather is changing so much and too hard to predict. Today is the first rainy day in Lebanon this year and this is really strange.
Usually in February it is still cold and it rains too much but nothing to worry about for your baby unless you are staying in the mountains where it snows so the roads can be dangerous. Maybe if it is raining you will not be able to go out a lot to discover the country but there are always places to go and enjoy ur time. If you need anymore help you can send me an e-mail. Take care

Hi,
Historically it is winter time during February, best moth for skiing in Lebanon. But frankly this year we cannot tell anymore since winter came very late. If you want my advise, May or June would be the best months to travel to Lebanon.

Travel Tips for Beirut

Dollars are accepted everywhere

by JK1977

The Lebanese local currency is the LIRA however, you won't need to change currency if you already have US dollars because they are accepted everywhere, even if you have any bill (restaurant, hotel, shops etc.) you get it in both lebanese currency and the USD equivalent. The exchange rate is fixed 1 USD = 1500 Lebanese Liras
Also ATMs are available everywhere and Credit Cards are accepted almost everywhere.

Lebanese Post Office

by MrBill

One of the last things I expected to find in Lebanon was a modern, functioning post office. Probably because I am familiar with former communist countries, where the post office is often the last vestige of the planned economy that is reformed. However, that is Lebanon. You arrive with one set of preconceived notions and then are pleasantly surprised.

The central post office is located in downtown Beirut, one street off the main pedestrian throughfares, between the main square and the Roman ruins. It is along the same street as the central bank, but not hard to find. The cost to mail a postcard is about LBP 1500 ($1) to Canada & the USA, and for Europe it is cheaper.

They had a very good selection of postcards and posters in the post office. They also had some other souvenirs. The post office was very modern and also offered Internet access. However, we arrived just as they were closing, but they were kind enough to stay open long enough to allow us to buy our stamps, choose our postcards, and mail them. Very nice and friendly of them.

Also, in the lobby of the post office, they had an impressive display of Harley Davidson motorcycles on show for the public. To locate the post office, look for their futuristic logo.

Walk in the coastal area

by sachara

We walked to the Place des Martyrs from the north, the coastal area. Here were a lot of activities behind fences. In these area the architects and townplanners planned a great vista from the Place des Martyrs to the sea, we saw later on huge billboards.
I worked many years as townplanner and was very interested in the enormous job of my colleague architects and townplanners her in Beirut.

Destroying Heritage

by MM212

Known for its beautiful mansions with red tiled roofs and Gothic windows, Beirut has seen many of them disappear over the years to make way for new developments. Such is the story all over the world, but Beirut's case is more pronounced because it had a civil war. Though many of the remaining Beiruti mansions have since been restored, a greater number is now once again being destroyed. This is in large part because of the hot property boom in recent years in the city, where wealthy Gulf citizens and Lebanese expatriates are willing to spend millions for large apartments with views. The result is that sought-after neighbourhoods, such as Achrafieh, are seeing their mansions vanish at an accelerating rate in favour of high tower blocks. Not only is this a great loss for the city architecturally, but also in terms of its gardens, skyline, sea breeze and general aesthetics; the city's tiny streets are being suffocated. I came across the attached graffiti on the walls of an Achrafieh mansion about to be destroyed. Clearly, awareness is there, but not the laws or will by developers to preserve the old. The attached photos also show views over Achrafieh in June 2006, compared with Dec 2009 with all the modern new towers.

The travelogue: "Traditional Beiruti Architecture" shows some examples of the city's heritage.

Lingering War Damage

by intelligentsia

As you walk through Beirut you can see many building that still bear the scars of the civil war. The city is doing its best to regain its image as "The Paris of the East" and thus a major effort to make all things shiny is underway. In the meantime you may still appreciate what this city and country has been through on your way to a latte at Starbucks.
