If you are flying to Beirut, you will be flying into Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport. This is a large airport that is located right on the coast, and you get a great view of the city when you fly in. Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport accepts flights from most international locations. Sometimes you can't get a direct flight though, and you will need to make a connection somewhere. The flights are usually very expensive because it is so far away and uses so much fuel. The security at the airport is pretty tight, so you should definitely try to get there a few hours before your scheduled flight time. Expect to have to go through some security and background checks, especially if you are an American citizen. Once you get to the airport, you can take a taxi to you hotel, or you can rent a car. The airport also has a good Duty Free shopping section where you can stock up on a number of different goods. Beirut also has a port, so if you have a boat or know of a way to charter a ship, you can sail into the city.
