'Bradt Guides are the favourites of travellers who wish not merely to see but to understand.'Dervla Murphy '.... a good guidebook like Paul Doyle's Lebanon is fairly essential because there is little information on the ground..'londonglossy.comVom Verlag:
The heart of the Middle East, Lebanon has been shaped by both its past and neighbours to become a truly fascinating destination. Beirut's hedonistic delights, skiing at one of the country's six resorts and the UNESCO World Heritage sites at Baalbek and Tyre all combine and contrast to offer a unique travel experience. Bradt's Lebanon is the most comprehensive and detailed guidebook currently available. This new and updated edition has expanded treatment for the business traveller or prospective property buyer plus detailed sections on the country's culture, history and religion. With Beirut nominated as one of Newsweek's Top 10 Cities in 2012 and the country attracting over 1.5 million visitors a year, Lebanon is, despite the area's troubles, a destination on the rise.

Here, some of the oldest human settlements in the world at the Phoenician ports of Tyre, Sidon and Byblos sit alongside modern Beirut, popular for its cuisine, eclectic nightlife and mosaic of peoples. In Lebanon's second city, Tripoli, busy medieval souks are watched over by a vast Crusader castle. Outside the city, snow-capped mountains and the lush Qadisha Valley with its snaking river and waterfalls provide entertainment for skiers and hikers, while the Mediterranean Sea draws sun and watersports enthusiasts. Bradt's Lebanon provides detailed cultural and practical information to this increasingly popular destination. It also provides in-depth historical and religious background enabling visitors to travel with awareness and sensitivity. 364 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9781841625584
