Why is Lebanon not safe?
The deterioration of the security environment and the political uncertainty may lead to an increase in civil unrest. Planned and spontaneous demonstrations related to the domestic and regional situations regularly occur in Lebanon, particularly in Beirut. Even peaceful demonstrations can turn violent at any time.
Is alcohol illegal in Lebanon?
You can drink alcohol as much as you want. Lebanon has drive through bars. There are no restrictions on alcohol (except when youre driving of course). There are many bars, bistros, pubs and clubs.
Is Lebanon cheap or expensive?
Lebanon is very expensive. In the end, I thought it was worth every single Lebanese pound and US dollar that Ive spent. Ive spent a similar amount for 10 days in Jordan, but that didnt feel nearly as satisfying as my trip to Lebanon. Sadly, travel costs money, but in the case of Lebanon, it was very well worth it.
