Lebanon Travel Guide
Lebanon is a country of culture, history, great food and lovely people. Although a civil war tore through the country from 1975 until 1999, (most) of the country is very safe and incredibly welcoming to tourists.
Walk through the breath-taking ruins at Baalbek, taste Lebanese wine or discover the streets of Byblos – one of the oldest cities in the world!
Lebanon is incredibly underrated and probably one of the countries I would recommend everyone interested in history and culture visit.
