Tourism Sector in Libya | Overview
Tourism remains more of a vision than a reality given the current situation in Libya. However, "We do have high hopes for Libya in the near future, as soon as the Libyan government can stand on its feet and security is brought back to the land," explains Anas M. Tarsin, General Manager of Al Waddan Hotel Tripoli.
"There are endless amounts of tourism potential here in Libya. Strategically Libya is in North Africa, just below Europe, it is facing Italy and southern France. Europeans would find no better place only an hour or an hour and a half away to come to than Libya," adds Tarsin.
