Great Experience. Was a great trip to be standing at the Israeli and Lebanon border. A must for anyone visiting the country.

Make sure you walk all the way to the end by the restaurant for a great photo standing next to arrows painted onto the building that point to Beirut. You can't see much of the border because it is fenced off and gated, but you can see the markers in the water and an Israeli warship hanging out in the... More
