Benghazi Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Located on the Gulf of Sidra Benghazi (pop. 650 000) is a pretty city filled with parks lakes and fewer ’70s-era concrete buildings than you’ll find in Tripoli.
The main sights in the city include the Al Muntazah Park, the Zoo, the Al Funduq Market and the large archaeological area.
The city also has nice beaches and an old-city section housing banks, government buildings, hotels and other commercial enterprises.The nearby Jebel Akhdar region is a good region for hikes but has been off limits for tourists, due to security problems.
