Tripoli is the capital of Libya. Tripoli has everything you may need to spend an interesting vacation. I will tell you some information about it.
The best times to visit are spring and autumn becuase the weather is very hot in summer and so cold and windy in winter.

Tripoli has old and new buildings; there are fantastic beaches an a long sea-board from Algarhpoli, Tajoura to Janzour. You can visit the castle museum. It's a wonderful place in the old city. It's called the Red Government House Museum. And you can go tot he Omar Alkiam Cinema or Alzhra Cinama in the evening. There are many internet cafes and coffee shops. For shopping you can walk to the First September Street.
There are many cheap restaurants, and the Libyan food is very delicious.
