"Off The Beaten Path" Syria by Doctor38

Syria Travel Guide: 3,976 reviews and 10,293 photos

Syria is a great country to travel. This page will be about off the beaten path destinations in Syria. I will add page to far away places but not Damascus, Aleppo or Palmyra. I will built these pages in the future about Halab (Aleppo) or Demashq (Damscus) and Tadmur (Palmyra)

I am done with Bosra, Ma'arat Al Noman which are under things to do. I am also done with off the beaten path destinations (Mashta El Helow, the Dead Cities, Qalat Shmamees, Qalat Sheizer, Qaser Ibn Wardan, Al Hamra, Musyaf and Hosn Solaiman).

Please note that Syria is full of graves of old prominent Arabic and Muslim figures that might NOT be interest for the non Arab tourists or your average VTer. I will have to write tips about them. They are every where in Syria. I had no Idea that that so and so person was even buried in Syria I did not try to find them, but where ever I went the names keep appearing.

When the VT uploading glitch get solved I'll be adding Tips about Aphamia, Homs, Alghab and the Krac to the off the beaten path.
