Warning[edit]

Should the warning box be expired or updated at this point? (WT-en) Maj 14:43, 15 October 2006 (EDT)

Warning Box Updated[edit]

Changed the language of the warning box to better reflect the situation in Lebanon, and also the actual language of the State Department's travel warning to American citizens - Will Donovan [1]

Driving[edit]

It looks like this sessions has been written by someone angry with the country. I visited Lebanon, drove it from the northern tip to the southern tip and, despite agreeing that rules are not often followed, that we can get lost easily because of lack of signs and there is much traffic, the condition of the roads was excellent and does not match at all the description given on this page.


DRIVING[edit]

I HAVE TO AGREE. AS IT SAYS ABOVE, THE CONDITION OF THE ROADS IN LEBANON IS NOT THAT BAD, THEY'RE ACTUALLY IN PRETTY GREAT CONDITION BUT OF COURSE THERE ARE SOME EXCEPTIONS LIKE IN EVERY COUNTRY.

Regions[edit]

It says there are 6 regions of Lebanon, but only five are listed. It seems like Nabatieh is missing... What shall we do? Should it be incorporated as part of South Libanon (which would make 5 regions), or could it suffice as it's own region? Seeing the little amount of content, I think it's best to just include it with South. --(WT-en) globe-trotter 18:14, 5 January 2010 (EST)

7 2 Other destinations[edit]

This is not a bottom level region article, so we can have just 9 other destinations listed. But right now there are 15 of them, and all but three are redlinks. I would suggest removing all the redlinked entries. --ϒpsilon (talk) 08:29, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

That seems reasonable to me, but I think the rest of them could be moved here, because they might be useful in region articles if they aren't already there. Ikan Kekek (talk) 09:08, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
