About Syria

Previous to the civil war that started in 2011, Syria was one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Middle East. For the past 8 years, it has been one of the most dangerous places in the world. Entire cities have been destroyed, ancient architecture is in ruins and lives of the Syrian people have been torn apart. It is reported that over half a million Syrian people lost their lives during the conflict and millions have been forced to seek refuge in other countries. Slowly, the country has begun to rebuild and tourism is beginning to trickle back in. The warm hospitality of the Syrian people, the history, the delicious cuisine still remains. Most governments still advise ‘do not travel’ to Syria due to unrest in certain parts of the country. The situation changes very quickly in Syria, so please check safety advice before considering your visit.
