Tripoli - Post Report Question and Answers

Is this a good city for single people? For couples? For families? Why or why not?

Families will tend to do better here, as there is no night-life to speak of. There is one movie theater that plays black and white movies, but works in Titanic once a month. There is a bowling alley with a few lanes. There were no restaurants to speak of until 2004 or so, but now there are probably 10 serviceable restaurants in the greater Tripoli area. There is a large singles community, but they mostly get together and commiserate at large house-parties. Like many other isolated locations, if you did not bring it, it isn't here. This goes for the dating pool as well. Don't come here looking for the pretty people. This is a very work-oriented, hard-charger sort of location. - Jan 2007
