Traveller's On ... Syria
Hama is a wonderful little city with some of Syria's most friendly inhabitants. The park in the city centre is a particularly good place to meet people and be invited to join a family picnic, as is the park on top of the citadel. It's also a terrific base from which to see crusader castles, dead cities, the Mediterranean and the mountains.
Alison & Richard Perruso, USA (July 00)

For a "must do" in Damascus, go up the mountain (by car, taxi) and overlook the whole city of Damascus. It's one of the most impressive city sights possible. The best time in summer for this is just before the prayers for the evening begin. You can hear the sound of prayers from the hundreds of mosques below in the valley - a great feeling and experience.
Paul Olieman (Jun 00)

As a whole, the warmth of the Syrian people is something we haven't experienced in any of the countries we have travelled around the world. We met such genuine kindness and curiosity from people and spent as much time "talking" to people as visiting - which was wonderful.

I can strongly recommend attending the Greek Orthodox Easter ceremony in Seidnayya. It is at 3 am (not the usual midnight, perhaps because the bishop who comes up from Damascus, has other commitments there first) and lasts for about two and a half hours. The nuns sing the liturgy "a cappella" (unaccompanied) with some of the priests joining it at various occasions. It is an extraordinary effect. You can spend the night there (quite primitive washing facilities, but the beds are comfortable) for SŁ500.

Deir ez-Zur has a new, very impressive museum - at al Imam street. Hama has a new museum which is also very impressive, on Ziqar street. It is smaller than the museum at Deir ez-Zur but both cover pre historic periods up until our century. The Atassi gallery, opposite the Algerian embassy in Alki (close to the Saudi Arabia embassy) is the best for contemporary art in Syria, without a doubt. It is open every day in the morning and evening, but is closed between exhibitions.
M. Abrahamsen, Norway (May 00)

Some great old American cars are around; a beautifully restored 1952 Pontiac was doing good business taking tourists on the Crac de Chevalier and Apamea run out of Hama. I sighted a legendary Oldsmobile Rocket 88, as in the Jackie Brenston opus "Rocket 88" (1951 Chess records) cited by many as the first rock 'n' roll record, but I digress. I'm also into vintage Volkswagen buses - lots of them out there. I found a '55 Kombi (much modified) working as a taxi in Aleppo, a '60 Kombi in Damascus and also there an early 60's pick up bus with safari windows to die for.

Syria is a great place to travel to with children. We were always welcomed by people and offered sweets, gifts and camel rides. In restaurants, waiters would play with my son for hours. I would recommend Syria as the place to start if you are considering travelling with a family.
Paul Wern (Feb 99)

Hosn Suleiman, an out of the way place, took a ridiculous amount of finding along a myriad of winding mountain tracks with hardly any sign posts. The scenery alone in the search is worth it, but the site itself, easily missed in its sheltered valley amid the trees, was superb. The enormous sanctuary walls still surround the temple, which although partly tumbled down, still gives an impression of its former splendour. We felt like a Victorian archaeologists stumbling across a lost city.
Kay Sheard, UK (Jan 2000)
