Lebanon What to Pack

  • Photography

    decent waterproof small camera bag (yes they do have the odd downpour in lebanon and when it rains it really does pour) to fit a body and a spare lens + filtersfor when you're out on day trips take a larger back like a camera rucksack, i get away with the lowepro micro trekker, small enough not to be a hinderance but large enough to carry a couple...

  • Pack in your plastic!

    There's nothing you might need in Lebanon and not be able to buy it on the spot. So just make sure you have enough money on you - plastic is perfect. Beirut is full of ATMs, and you can (surprise! surprise!) even chose the currency in which your account is debited - USD or local (Lebanese pound/lira).

  • Packing List

Also take a sweater because sometimes it can get chilly at night, especially in the mountains even in the summer. Jeans and slacks are a must, but take shorts, tanks and swim suits for the beach. Stomach medicine, although...
