When to fly to Beirut

April to June has the most seasonable weather; the summers get uncomfortably hot in this Mediterranean climate, and heavy rains fall in the winter.

Getting around Beirut

Don’t try to navigate the crazy traffic in a rental car, instead opt for taxis or ‘service’ taxis, which are shared taxis; they aren’t quite as convenient as getting your own but they’re a bit cheaper. Be aware that Lebanese taxi drivers are notorious for overcharging by two to three times the real value of a ride.

Beirut insider information

Because of its French colonial history, many Beirutis (yes, Beirutis), speak French – and a little French can go a long way. A simple ‘Bonjour’ when you enter a café, shop, or taxi can establish a good initial impression with whoever you’re about to do business with. And of course, don’t forget to say ‘Merci’ whenever appropriate.
