    Although Beirut was notorious for sometime for being a dangerous place; there is nothing to fear these days and I consider it one of the safest places. May be because it's my home town that I feel safe but I think those who have been there can provide their unbiase opinion too :-)

    Be careful of taking photographs thru out city of Beirut, especially where military are present, you may want to ask first. It is a wonderful place, but certain areas you want to refrain from photos, bombed areas, military present, etc.

    We were in Beirut in March 2006 ---before the recent war.
    Whilst walking along the Corniche (sea front promenade) I went to take a photo of the bay. A couple of soldiers were just in my shot.....they weren't happy! Beware!
