Everyone is worried these days, and with the Damascus Airport in upheaval, Beirut’s International Airport has become a hub for the many thousands of Lebanese and Syrians trying to flee the impending escalation in hostilities. Whispers of war, car bombs, a US strike, chemical weapons attack and other very unpleasant realities are making it impossible to find tickets to leave Lebanon, especially with the change in schedule by many airlines after the announcement that US missiles or drones might strike targets within Syria, making the airspace in the region unappealing to many.
Fear not though! Thanks to the bilateral agreements that made visas unnecessary between Lebanon and Turkey, you can now take a ferry, with your car too, from Tripoli to Tasucu in Southern Turkey!
There are prices and timetables, summer and winter schedules, and even family plans and hotel facilities. It’s sad really, that businesses like that are booming not for tourism purposes, but for security concerns. Tickets are as low as 150USD one-way, for a 12 hour boat ride in the Eastern Mediterranean. It’s kinda nice, and same price if not cheaper than airlines, with open-ended round-trips as low as 234USD (plus, it’s more scenic!)
