Syria Things to Do: 414 reviews and 569 photos
Syria's main port,and its most European city, really doesn't have a lot to offer beyond an interesting glimpse into a different Syrian society than you will have seen anywhere else. With a large Christian population, and a big university, you will see a far less conservative city than any other, and the strong Alawite presence (the President is an Alawite) may well have much to do with the conspicuous redevelopment . Lattakia is a popular holiday spot with Syrians and a resort area has grown up around two large hotels and a rather mediocre beach about 8km north of the city. Summer here is very busy, out-of-season the hotels are all but empty and you can usually get a room with a sea view and 4 star comfort at a very reasonable rate and with Ugarit right on their doorstep.
