Lebanon’s economic crisis has been instigating major confusion among its own people, let alone tourists. One important rule, however, is to never pay with your USD visa or exchange your USD according to the official rate.

Lebanon has a major issue with wifi and public networks that tourists often forget to take into consideration when visiting the country.
Finding a fast and accessible network as tourists visit the country is almost impossible. Unless you are willing to visit a specific place and ask for their wifi password, you are advised to buy a data bundle in order to have a network connection whenever you go.
Lebanon’s hidden gems are rarely found using a GPS. Surely, tourists can locate some famous destinations through their mobile GPS, but getting lost is definitely possible in Lebanon.
Therefore, when visiting Lebanon, you should not rely on your GPS and you should always ask around when lost. You’ll always meet friendly people everywhere eager to help and with some extra tips and recommendations.
