Libya Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 42%, Libya is one of the top North African travel destinations. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most difficult and challenging places to visit as well. However, as the Arab spring washes over the region, the hope is that this will begin to change, and many of who have dreamed of visiting this ancient land for so long, will finally have the chance to do so. Regardless of politics, Libya offers a range of destinations that are not only world-class, but truly classic. At the top of this list is the incomparable Sabratha, one of the best preserved sites of the once-mighty Phoenician empire. However, if you're looking for a dose of culture, Tripoli awaits with the mesmerizing, UNESCO-listed Old Town Medina that will transport you into a world of exotic sounds and smells that will blow your mind. Any trip to the capital should also budget for a visit to the Jamahiriya Museum, a truly great collection of artifacts that brings the country's colorful history to life. Once Libya's gates are flung wide open, by all accounts PlanetHoppers! should arrive in droves.
