Travel Tips for Damascus

ATMs/cash machines in Damascus

by RblWthACoz

ATMs are extremely prevalent here in comparison to other cities in Syria. They are mostly located in the Central Damascus area. I only found a couple in the Old City...the easiest one to find is at the very end of Straight Street. Though for some reason it kept spitting my card out everytime I put it in. Your best bet is the central city area. There are also some exchange offices around here as well.

Exchange Office

by RblWthACoz

Across the street from the entrance to Souq al-Hamidiyya there is an exchange office I used. The employee gave me an old Iraqi Dinar bill with Saddam Hussein's portrait on it. Today it is useless of course and a mere souvenir.

Eid Mubarak!

by MM212

Eid al-Adha, one of Islam's two big holidays, happened to fall on 30 December 2006. In Damascus on that day, eager to do some shopping, I was quite disappointed to see large sections of the souk closed in celebration of the holiday. On the flip side, it was fantastic to see masses of happy Damascene families strolling in the streets and enjoying the holiday. The entrance of Souk Al-Hamidiya by the Omayyad Mosque is a large gathering area and a great place for people watching during Eid.

An appropriate greeting is "Eid Mubarak!" or "عيد مبارك".

Look the citylights

by themagiclake

They shine at night, they seems to be so far from us, standing up on this mountain...Drinking a hot tea, my eyes lost in yours, no words are needed cause our hearts are talking already...Oh God, i dont wanna go away.....please, let me stay here, forever...Doesn't split what is born to be One.....Those citylights, the same i saw from the plane, as lil stars in the sky, where you are the shinest one...

Shahba, or Philippopolis, is an ancient Roman city, founded by Philip the Arab. Constructions started in 244AD, but stopped five years later after Philip’s assassination. The most interesting ruins are those of the forum of the ancient Philippopolis, a shrine dedicated to Philip’s father, a temple, a palace, a theatre and the baths. There is also a small museum, which contains some very beautiful 4th century mosaics with subjects taken from ancient Greek myths, mostly with Dionysus, Aphrodite and Orpheus. (Admission 75SP, open 9am-6pm Wednesday-Monday March-November, 9am-4pm December-February). To visit Shahba you must take the Suweida bus from Baramkeh terminal.
