Syria is a fine country to visit. It is rich in heritage with many history-bearing sights to find, especially those that hold the backgrounds stated in the Christian religion’s book, the Bible. Syria is an Asian country, and it belongs to the Middle East group of states. Damascus is its well-developed and modernized capital city. Syria is never landlocked since it has a coastline with the Mediterranean Sea. The local cuisine is one of the aspects to discover about Syria as well as its long-lived history with its capital city being the most ancient city in the country.
When travelling into Syria, there are four means of transport to choose from depending on the distance from Syria, your budget, and whether or not the origin country is in the same continent as that of Syria. Syria has three international airports that serve across-the-border flights to other countries and continents in the world.
The Damascus International Airport is served by the following airlines: Syrian Arab Airlines, Aeroflot, BMI, Turkish Airlines, Lufthansa, Cyprus Air, Maley, Czech Airlines, Flydubai, Air Arabia, Jazeera Airways, Gulf Air, Emirates, Qatar Airways, Etihad Airways, and Conviasa Airlines that connect to Caracas in America. Aleppo International Airport shares the same connections to the same destinations by the same airlines with Damascus International Airport. However, the Lattakia International Airport, which is located at the seaport of Lattakia, has flights to and from Cairo-Egypt and Kuwait.
People in Istanbul and Tehran can use train services to reach at the train stations at Aleppo and Damascus in Syria. Turkey, Jordan, and Lebanon have road network connections with Damascus-Syria. Thus, people in these three countries can use the international, public bus services to reach at Damascus bus station. If you travelling on the sea using a ferry, you can board a passenger ferry in Bodrum-Turkey or Limassol-Cyprus to arrive at the Lattakia and Tartous Sea ports of Syria.
Syria’s accommodation is top quality. The major type of accommodation offered in this country is the many star hotels. They charge a bit dearly at a range of $50 – $250 per night. The highest price is for the five-star hotels while the cheap side of the range is for the three star hotels. Booking for accommodation in the capital city of Damascus can be surprisingly higher than the hotels outside the city.
Syria’s cuisine is unique. Its local dishes include the Falafel dish containing fried chicken peas, and the Foul Dish that contains a paste of Fava beans. Meat is served in wraps and they are affordable. The restaurants and hotels in the cities and tourist centers are fine with remarkable customer service.
