Based in the Middle East on the Mediterranean Sea, Lebanon’s neighbours include Syria and Israel.

Lebanon is a country of great beauty, and there is no finer example of this than its capital, Beirut, which for decades, was called the Paris of the Orient. Now, thanks to recent discoveries of significant oil and gas reserves, Lebanon is redeveloping Beirut and restoring her to her former glory.

Rent a bike, and tour the National Museum, and rejuvenated colonial relics downtown on Sundays, when cars are not permitted. Marvel at the natural rock arches of Pigeon Rocks, just in front of the Corniche. History buffs will want to take day trips to visit ancient archaeological sites at Baalbek,and Kozhaya.

At least four to eight weeks prior to your planned departure for Lebanon, plan a visit to our Travel Health Clinic, to make doubly sure that you will be completely safe and up-to-date with the Vaccinations you need to stay healthy on and after your trip to Lebanon.

Incredible service – so helpful
Excellent service! Chazile went above and beyond to prepare me for my travels to south east Asia. Very kind, sharp and added helpful bits of information that will be useful during my travels. Even created a vaccine booklet for me that I asked for to keep track of my vaccines for the future. Highly recommended The London Vaccination Clinic. Thanks again Chazile 🙂 Nick

Travel vacines

Attended a consultation for travel vacines, the nurse explained everything with care, provided good advice. We then add a follow up consultation with a different nurse for the vaccines and was also very kind and professional. Was very impressed, we did not feel pressured to have more vacines then reasonable and both nurses gave pricing information upfront.

Very positive experience

Really easy to book and the nurse who I saw in Liverpool Street was really kind and helpful. She went through my vaccination history, what I needed for my trip and explained everything I needed to know ahead of administrating the vaccine I needed.
I am glad I arrived early as the venue was tricky to find as the name of the building has changed so doesn’t match Google maps. Put me in a slight panic as I thought I was going to miss my appointment but I found it in the end!

My nurse was a beautiful soul inside…

My nurse was a beautiful soul inside and out. I have a fear of needles and she was so patient and reassuring from beginning to end. She asked me questions, helped me to relax and made me feel like an individual rather than just someone on the list for the day.

Further Travel Health Advice for Lebanon

Summer days in Lebanon are hot and dry, and temperatures can rise to 30-32. But if you visit in Spring, you will find a very comfortable, Mediterranean climate. If you are at the beach, or touring Beirut in summer, apply sunblock liberally and often. While touring, drink lots of bottled water, and other fluids.

Don’t risk drinking local water when travelling. Use only bottled, purified drinking water, and use it also bottled water for brushing your teeth, no matter which area you visit. Avoid ice cubes, and fountain drinks.

Lebanon is world famous for its wonderful cuisine, and it’s not surprising that many Middle Eastern countries have adopted Lebanese dishes as their own. Lebanon produces an abundance of vegetables and herbs, which are used creatively and liberally. Coriander, parsley, and mint add their unique flavour to most dishes.

Grilled meats and fish, chicken or lamb shawarma are mainstays, but the variety of ingredients available in Lebanon make each meal a discovery. One of the most memorable is the traditional Meze, an assortment of over 40 small dishes served with Arak, an aged wine spiced with anise. Lebanon produces some excellent wines to enjoy with its fabulous cuisine.

Health care services in Lebanon are very good, and hospitals are well equipped, but care is expensive, so it is vital that you arrange in advance to have enough money with you to pay for any health care you might need. ATMs are available throughout cities and resorts.

Protect yourself, and your family, with adequate travel health insurance which will cover your intended itinerary and any unusual activities.
