"Packing List" Syria Packing List Tip by shellseeker

Syria What to Pack: 27 reviews and 18 photos


Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: For the winter period in Syria be prepared to have to use many different types of clothing. In Palmyra and along the Euphrat River it was hot; In Aleppo and St.Simeons Monastery it was raining; And in the end in Damascus it was snowing(!).

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Have a good medical insurance to make you sure to be flown out of the country when something is happening. Someone broke his leg during the trip. The medical standards obviously don't live up to Western European expectations.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
