my trip to Lebanon!

hi everyone,

i'm Ella, and i'm planning to travel to Lebanon next month. here's some questions i'd like to know the the answer to.

1. does it make sense to do a backpack trip by myself (27 years old woman)?

2. i am planning to drive a car for a part of my trip, is it possible to rent a car upon my arrival or should i order ahead?

3. what are the best on-line GPS apps in Lebanon? looking for an app that will keep me away from traffic (so navigation apps such as google maps won't do)..

4. will i be able to go to beach those dates? (end of September).

thanks so much!

Ella.

Ella,

I spent 8 days in Lebanon last September. As regards driving I saw countless reckless drivers. The traffic jams seemed endless. I'm glad I didn't rent a car.

I personally found it much more relaxing and enjoyable using the tour company. Baalbek was incredible.

I just used google maps with a local SIM card and it worked fine- though sometimes the traffic is unavoidable it did a pretty decent job
