9781841625584: Lebanon (Bradt Travel Guide)

This new edition of Bradt's Lebanon remains the most comprehensive and detailed English-language guide available. In addition to its more in-depth coverage of essential background information such as history, culture and religion the guide has expanded treatment for the business traveller and prospective property buyer. Subjects such as the environment and responsible travel are given increased emphasis, and there is plenty of additional information for those interested in volunteering opportunities. The guide also caters for all types of travellers and budgets with extensive listings and reviews for accommodation and restaurants. There is also a new section on travelling with children. With a comprehensive language appendix covering both Arabic and French together with an expanded further reading section for this new edition, Bradt's Lebanon is an indispensable practical companion for use within the country and a useful work of reference for armchair travellers too.
Although only half the size of Wales, Lebanon offers extraordinary diversity. 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.

Review:

.... a good guidebook like Paul Doyle's Lebanon is fairly essential because there is little information on the ground.. (londonglossy.com)

Bradt Guides are the favourites of travellers who wish not merely to see but to understand. (Dervla Murphy)

Detailed and well-organized, this guide includes town and country maps, plenty of historical context on the country's troubled recent past and some useful sidebars on noted points of interest and key figures in Lebanese culture. (Longitude Books)
