I hope it is clear for you now:NEVER mention israel while you are in syria;if you cross syria,don't say that you will go to israel afterwards;when you arrive at the syrian border,never speak of israel,you have never been there,and you will never go,ok?many friends of mine arrived at the turkish-syrian border or jordan-syria border,they were refused at the border and had to go back without going to syria just because they mentioned israel.
But Damascus is not like Casablanca or Cairo .Here nobody will bother you and you will not be harrassed by postcard sellers or false guides, because tourism is not so much developed ; syria has also the most beautiful girls in the world (sorry for russia) , but if you are a single tourist girl, be careful, 5000 men will follow you in the street and spoil your day , so be clever : cover your body as much as possible like the syrian girls who are fed up with men
- Pros:extremely rich in history
- Cons:problems with medicine and clinics, do not get ill
- In a nutshell:you can stay here 15 days, it is worth it, but not longer
some areas are extremely rich, for instance "mezze" , where you will see big cars from the gulf or emirates more travel advice
