Hi all, I have a week-long trip planned for mid December.......actually Ill be spending my birthday in Beirut! Wondering if there are useful tips/guides on events and festivities I can do (solo). I'll like to know if going around town, sight seeing can be done conveniently by public transport/uber or I'm better off getting a car rental. I'm in love with lambchops and planning to go gourmet and street style......suggestions anyone? Shukran :)

We're planning a trip to Israel and Lebanon in Oct '13. The Travel Advisory for Lebanon is to avoid all travel. Yet I've seen reviews from people saying it's fine with a guide (which we'll have) and to avoid border towns. If any of you have traveled to Lebanon within the past month, we'd love to hear your experience/thoughts. Thank you!
Next week I will have my flight to Beirut for a short (10days) trip to visit Lebanon. Since the Dutch government changed their travel advice to Lebanon today I totally do not know what to do. The advice is now: all not-essential travels are discourgared. What do you think? Is it still safe to visit Beirut center and Byblos and some other place at the coast?
I know that there are several warnings you have to take very serious but I also know that they are very fast with a very intens negative advice for a whole country even when the "problems" are located in certain areas.
Hopefully you can give me some advice.
