There is plenty to do in Beirut for a tourist and a business traveler. The city has become quite safe than before and it has also made a mark in terms of economy. One of the first things that you should do before traveling to Beirut is to get the appropriate insurance. Getting the insurance will covers the costs of any accidents, medical expenses and loss of property.
Though Beirut has now come out of a major resurgence since the last 10 years, it is always better to travel in a group. You should not wear any valuable and you should not carry too much money. You should ideally keep the important document such as your passport in the hotel. Many tourists are still fearful of traveling to Beirut but now this city is extremely safe. There is no need to worry about anything. In case you see any political procession then don’t try to join one of it. Just move on without being hassled as the processions are now conducted in a peaceful manner.
Though the crime rate is less than before you should take extra care of your valuables. Be on the watch out for pickpockets. Avoid overcrowded area where there is going to be a lot of hustle and bustle between the people. Avoid traveling alone by night. It is better to take a hotel car with a knowledgeable driver so you don’t get lost. Beirut night life is active but you should take care of yourself at all times. Inform the driver what time you will come back.
Remember to respect the customs of the people. Try not to wear short clothes in the places of worship. Avoid any confrontation on the street and try to solve matters amicably.
