Re: From Damascus to Amman

Hello,
The best way to go to Amman from damascus is by Bus , karnak or jett buses leave from Damsacus to Amman from a main station called Sumariyah on the outskirts of Damascus , cost probably 500 Syrian Liras +.Shared service taxis leave from another port but you can find them at the Sumariyah station too.
Double check the information on location/schedule/ timings ahead of time from the place you are staying at as there are one or two trips per day , i`m sure the people at your accomodation will know.
There is also buses and shared service taxis to Beirut and Allepo and northern Syrian cities from Baramkeh and Pullman or Harasta garage.
Public Transpor is cheap in Syria .
Have a nice trip.

oh 500 + means in the range of 700 liras average.
Shared service taxis probably faster than buses ,takes about 4 hrs +
usually you wait till the taxi fills up before taking off and factor in border top /checks /anyone needing a visa....bus is ok too ..

Travel Tips for Damascus

big wonderful damascus

by call_me_rhia

A wonderful, great, enourmous city! I don't know exactly how many millions of people live there, and anyway I guess the number would simply scare me. And yet, this big place can be cosy, frinedly, intimate. It's the lace I felt most at home: a city of charm, of contrasts, of chaos. A lady I saw in the street - which for me represented the essence of Damascus. Black stilettos, tights bright green fake leather trousers, a black biker jacket and a black hijab that covered most of her face. Anywhere else she would have looked ridiculous - in Damascus - she simply looked in between modern and traditional life.

Salihiyya - Mosque & Mausoleum of Mohi al-Din

by MM212

Located in Salihiyya Quarter, this early Ottoman mosque was built in the 16th century in a mix of Ottoman, Mamluke and Syrian styles. Attached to the mosque is the Mausoleum of Mohi al-Din ibn al-Arabi, a famous 12th century Sufi mystic who was born in Andalusia. He was one of the early founders of Sufism and his tomb continues to be a pilgrimage site to this day. Attached are photos of the mosque and mausoleum. Notice the recycled Corinthian columns in the mosque's hypostyle prayer hall.

Souq Saroujah

by TheWanderingCamel

This area of Damascus, just outside the walls of the old city, north of the footbridge over ath-Thawra, is a mix of a few grand old houses, now mostly very run-down and occupied by several families (2 are now backpackers' hostels, Jane Digby's house was located here), new office buildings and apartments,shops, mosques and mausoleums, all scrambled up together in a maze of little streets - lots of atmosphere here as people go about their daily lives.
