I visited Syria for 9 days in December/January and it was amazing. I didn't know what to really expect and was very surprised. The people are very friendly and welcoming and the food fantastic (I only ate local foods).

Syria has a wonderfully long history and very interesting. Aleppo is a more conservative town and I highly recommend visiting to get a feel of what Syria used to be like.

We also stayed in Hama and Palmyra (we were there NYE and it was snowing!). Damascus is a wonderful old city mixed with both muslim and christian quarters.

We were in Syria when the Gaza seige was occuring and, although we found security a little tighter, in no way did we feel threatened or in danger...

I would definitely recommend this trip.

If you really look like your passport photo, you need the holiday!

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
