Due to sanctions and Western paranoia, travel to Libya was almost unknown and this interesting North African country is almost virgin territory for travelers. Although there are some conditions, especially in the more remote areas that aren’t yet in the class of Western-style luxury, it is safe to travel in most places and the varied scenery and pristine quality antiquities are quite breathtaking.
The luxurious Corinthia Hotel Tripoli, as one of the leading five-star properties in Libya’s capital city, voted one of the best places to stay by Conde Nast Traveller 2010, It has benefited from the recent growth of business travel from the west. With Libya fast gaining popularity as an exciting new holiday destination, there is a renewed focus on the American leisure market.
