Lebanon is a small country in the Middle East that has a coastline along the Mediterranean Sea. It shares a border with Syria to the north and east and Israel to the south. The people of Lebanon come from a variety of different backgrounds and ethnic groups. The religion within the country is split between Christianity, Muslim and Druzes. Due to the recent civil war in Syria there are now almost 1,600,000 Syrian refugees (as of late 2014). There are also about 250,000 Palestinian refugees in the country as well.

The people in Lebanon are generally quite friendly and welcoming. They will happily welcome you to their country and do everything possible to act as good hosts. The general population is highly educated, particularly in Beirut and other urban areas. The Bekaa Valley and the rural north and south tend to be the more conservative parts of the country.

Recent nearby civil wars have dramatically impacted tourism in Lebanon. The people remain friendly and hopeful, however, and, as is often the case with the Middle East, the future is unpredictable.

Lebanon has a Mediterranean climate that has hot and dry summers and cold and wet winters. Most visitors come during the summer months because rain is almost nonexistent between June and August and the temperatures are generally pleasant. The coast can be very humid during these months but the mountains are cooler and comfortable. Although there is a little more rain, fall and spring are also great times to visit. The crowds are less and the temperature remains comfortable. During the winter months there is snow in the mountains and it is a good time to visit the country's many ski resorts.
