"Packing List" Syria Packing List Tip by kettravels

Syria What to Pack: 27 reviews and 18 photos

Miscellaneous: Take plenty of US$ cash. Traveler's cheques work too but you'll get a lower rate of exchange and they can be a hassle to get rid of. At least when I was there there was no such thing as an ATM. You could get advances on your credit cards ... if you were willing to fork over a 50% commission!! I would doubt that the situation has changed much!

Review Helpfulness: 0.5 out of 5 stars
