Whether you're wandering the winding alleys of the souk marketplace in Damascus or exploring castles once used by the Crusaders, you'll feel the influence of both ancient cultures and an air of change due to the modern Arab Spring uprising while in Syria. From the Amorites to the Romans and the Arabs to the Ottomans, Syria was no stranger to foreign influences for millennia. More recently, however, this nation on the brink of civil war hasn't had a great deal of foreign influence or travelers, and many countries warn against traveling here. It's a shame, as Syrian friendliness is legendary, whether it's a private tour of the best shawarma restaurants in Aleppo, the hospitality offered at a Bedouin hotel and camp near the ancient ruins of Palmyra.

    Worth visiting if you want to experience a non-touristy side of the middle east. Some of the best value for money botique hotels I've ever been to. People are super friendly.

    Syria has some amazing historical sites, intoxicatingly rich culture, and fantastic food.
