Hi All,

I am planning a trip to Damascus to visit my boyfriend. He has his own apartment there and I was wondering if there will be any problem with me staying with him at his apartment if we are not married.

Why not ask your boyfriend this question?

Since he lives there he would know.

In private homes,premises nobody cares so you `ll be fine . In upscale Hotels the standard procedure for almost all the Middle East is to check the marital status for walk ins unless booked earlier on as part of an incoming tour group you could get away with it . It`s up to the staff to check but sometimes they never do , either not familiar with the procedure or not bothered.Kind of hit and miss .In motels ,dorm style places, don`t think anyone would bother with that issue.
don`t worry and have a nice trip.

Thats great Mel. I guess I just got spooked by a travel advisory site I was reading on the net. You have put my mind at rest.

Thank you

Damascus

by albateh

The place des Omayyads marks the entrance to the city from the west; the road from Beirut and the motorway from Qunaytra, which also serves Dimashq al Jadideh ("New Damascus") both coverage there. To the left there is quarter (ministries, army headquarters, embassies and al Assad national library), whilst the continuation of the Beirut road, the avenue Shukry Kouwatly leads to the busy center of the city, an area which is being completely reorganized. The avenue Shukry Kouwatly is bordered on the left by the gardens surrounding the Officers’ Club; on its right the waters of the Barada flow sluggishly along an excavated channels across which can be seen, on the other bank, the buildings of the International Fair, the theatre, various facilities, the gardens and the buildings of the Museum, and finally, the domes and tapering minarets of the Takiyeh al Suleimaniyeh (the "pilgrims’ haven"), dating from the time of Suleiman.

Hospitality

by anastasia-t

If you come here, forget the frase"no,thank you I am on diet..Iam full ect".People are really hospital and they call you at their houses for dinner or coffee all the time,even if it is the first time they meet you. And the best part is that there is nothing to worry about.You can go and feel like your home!

Sights and attractions, experience mount Qassion

by irantour

Mount Qassion is the place where you can find yourself Quit relax and meet people, there are some restaurants to which you can pampare yourself for a fine localy food, Mount Qassion is located in North west of the damascus and anyone can reach there by taking a taxi from anywhere in the city, I suggest getting there late afternoon, before get your camera ready for the best and amazing view of the city.
This is a mass of bare rock. What is exciting is the myth surrounding it, which claims that the Holy Prophet Mohammad stood on it likening Damascus to Paradise. Tourists should visit this mount at dusk when the city below lights up giving a stunning view.
Enjoy

Maalula

by siaki68

One of the reasons Maalula is famous, is because it is one of the last places where people still speak Aramaic, the language of Christ. It is a beautiful, small village with houses painted blue and two monasteries, the convent of St Thecla (Deir Mar Takla) and the monastery of St Sergius (Deir Mar Sarkis). The Mar Sarkis monastery is one of the oldest churches in Syria; some of its icons date back to the 13th century. The convent of Mar Takla is not very interesting. What is fascinating is the passage from where, according to the legend, St Thecla managed to escape her persecutors: a narrow, small gorge, which resembles a lot to the famous gorge of Petra. Minibuses and microbuses from Damascus to Maalula depart from the Maalula garage.
