Beirut Airport

by Ramonq

Will be ariving Beirut next week at around 22:00 hrs. Are there shuttle buses from the airport? How honest are the taxi meters in Beirut? I'll be staying around Hamra, so how much would the approx fare be from airport to Hamra?

Thanks in advance

Hello and welcome :)
There are no shuttle buses from airport. I asked for the rate with a taxi company and it is around 14 USD for Hamra (another company offered a rate of 18 USD). The cars which have taxi sign without any taxi company name on them might offer a higher or lower rate which you can bargain. The taxi companies (Geant Taxi or Geryes Taxi or Allo Taxi or Taxi premiere or whatever its name is: usually written on the glass or on the car itself) have a fixed rate so no need to bargain. You can book your transfer before arrival if you prefer.

Thanks very much! I gather Beiruti taxis accept US dollars. What about euro? Would I be better off if I pay in Lebanese money?

Re: Beirut Airport

Most of them accept US dollars, the companies will accept them for sure. Euro is not used here so they might not accept it.

Hi, I ve just back from Beyrout, Lebanon.
I am an Egyptian physician, spent their about five days.
My Taxi experience:
Any travel inside Beyrout will cost you 15.000 lebanese lire "10 dollars" If u ll take it privately....If with other people, they called it "Service car" and u ll pay only 4,000 lebanese lire "2.7 dollars"...regarding that the same car may work as a private taxi or a " service car" upon ur request...But some higher models of taxi like "mercedes E 200" or "Lexus or Jaguar" refuse to work as a "service car"......
I ve known a very good and honest taxi driver "Mercedes C180" who accompanied me all through my visit...Every morning, at 9.00 am, he was taking me to different places and returning me at the crowne plaze hotel in elHamra at 7.00 pm "For only 100 dollars"...."by the way, the hotel taxi offered the same for 175 dollars".....I got the taxi-driver cellular number, if u want to get it just e-mail me at dr_ayman78@yahoo.com, thanks.

Travel Tips for Beirut

Flying to Beirut

by meissoun

Many flights arrive in the middle of the night. Make the best out of this fact and make sure to get a window seat on the left side of the airplane. This will give you a manificent view of "Beirut by night" when you get there!

Rafik Hariri

by RblWthACoz

On Valentine's Day, 2005, Prime Minister Rafik Hariri was assassinated by a massive bomb. His body lies entombed next to the large mosque he constructed. It is easy to spot where he lies. Just look for the very large white tent close to Martyr's Square.

This of course is a very sensitive issue that aroused the passions of the Lebanese people enough to push for the removal of all Syrian troops who had been stationed there for 30 years. Pictures of Hariri are everywhere...and there are a few counters that mark the number of days since the bombing.

Language

by Moustafa_LB

Arabic is the official language in Lebanon and is spoken by all. It is common for people to speak more than one language, even three or four, thus; French and English are widely spoken among the Lebanese. Foreign newspapers and magazines are available, and the prolific local press publishes in French and English as well as Arabic. Communication is definitely not a problem!

Trilingual

by RblWthACoz

Many Lebanese are trilingual or bilingual at the very least. Most people speak Arabic and French and some speak English as well. If you know French already, there is no need to learn Arabic too since so many people speak it.

Harissa

by sachara

Form Jounieh, 20 KM north of Beirut, you can take the telepherique (cable car) to Harissa in the mountains. We did choose for the other option by road, allthough not less breathtaking. The road twists alarmingly with sheer drops along parts of the road.
But at the end you will reach the statue of the Virgin of Lebanon with outstretched arms, welcoming you.
We visited the modernist Maronite cathedral just beside the Virgin.
The interior of the church is built in a way, that your attention goes up and towards the window, where you have a dim look at the Virgin outside.
