Syria Transportation: 81 reviews and 74 photos

Microbus

Those are a very common kind of transportation in Syria, and really the cheapest, it is 3 Syrian pounds to go in one of them, reminding that 1$ = 50 Syrian Lira
so you can imagine how cheap it is, the only double trouble is that it has its own so called line to go through
and that you have to know the name of the streets, but ask before you get in and it will be ok!

Taxis

Taxi is the best way to move fast from a place to another in Hims, as it still not expensive at all, 2$ for the far distances!
and it is always comfortable, other kinds of Transportation could have a fixed way to walk through, a Taxi will take you from any point to any other!

Taxi

In the beginning we thought both with Malena to have the micro buses to make the roam in the desert; fortunately in the way to the bus station I mentioned it to the Taxi driver, so he offered to make an exceptional price for us, with a place just for 2 not in a bus with many people sweating LOL
and plus it was fun and comfortable!
and he was a good guide also!
Not forgetting how he saved our lives with the litters of fresh cold water supporting us and keeping us alive *not exaggerating while saying that* so thanks we were lucky!

Bus

There are buses to go from Damascus to Ma'lula, but there is another good way to pick a privet cab to go to Ma’lula, the bus is for sure much cheap, ¼ $
The cab is faster but more expensive: about 1and1/2 $
Hee hee sure it is relative, but it is up to you to choose.

Bus again!

Bus from Damscus to Busra, less than half an hour to be their!
The Bus should be taken from the second not basic main station,
So be careful and do not mistake by going to the main station as it transports only to the big cities like Aleppo or Hamah or Hims and so...

Bus from any Syrian city such as Damascus or Aleppo to Tartus is a great solution!

To St.Simeon

To St Simeon you can go by buss or by a taxi!
Better to find a microbus to take you there!
But the best thing is to go by car with Dr.Firas!
If you are his friend!
That is definitely the best choice! LOL
