Is the cost of living in Lebanon high?

We asked people how much they someone comfortably live on in Lebanon, they wrote:

"The cost of living in Lebanon is generally considered to be high, especially in the capital city of Beirut. Prices for basic necessities such as food, housing, and transportation can be expensive, and the cost of living can vary significantly depending on the area. In addition, the cost of utilities, such as electricity and water, can be quite high. Despite the high cost of living, Lebanon is still a popular destination for tourists and expats due to its rich culture and history," said one expat in Lebanon.
