Although a relatively small country, Lebanon is naturally blessed with many eco-tourism sites of great diversity.
The first Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) navigation guide to tourism and eco-tourism sites in Lebanon was launched this month at the Ministry of Tourism. The PDA Navigation Guide fully utilizes the power of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to increase the competitiveness of rural tourism by encouraging tourists discover landmarks and natural beauty hidden in rural and remote areas. The PDA Guide to tourism provides hand held digitized maps of Lebanon with directions and guidance to over 11,000 Points of Interests across Lebanon.
Now this news may seem strange or even surreal given the current state of affairs in the country but nevertheless it was done with the hope that things will eventually get better. So if you are a Lebanese and believe in the power of prayers, well you know what to do, and God bless.
