from airport to al amer hotel (Damascus - Baramkeh)

by civilian

hello

my parents are traveling next week to Damascus to meet my girlfriend and help her with the visa formalities for germany.
They will stay in Al hameer hotel, close to the central bus terminal ( address from www: Damascus - Baramkeh - Behind Immigration Dep.). They will meet my girlfriend and help her with the visa formalities for germany.

What is the cost of a bus ticket, or taxi ride. What is a landmark close to the hotel???

thanks for answers

the land mark is SANA news agency. when you say Baramkeh, everybody will show you the way... I recomend using Taxis always as Damascus is not provided with efficient transportation system. Each tai owns a taxi meter. they are cheap and a ride inside Damascus could cost 1 ~ 1.5 $ maximum

Damascus

There are many landmarks to help the visitor in the center of the city, despite all the works that are going on. The avenue Shukry Kouwatly ends at a sort of esplanade , crowded with taxis an d buses. From here, on the right, the boulevard al Jabry begins (general post office, railway station); on the left is the boulevard Port Saïd, which becomes the boulevard du 29 Mai, ending at the place du 17 April, facing the imposing marble colonnade of the Central Bank. These wide boulevards are lined with restaurants, cinemas, the monument to the glory of the Syrian peasant (Mydan Youssef al Azmeh), the Mouhafazah, or town hall, the city Tourist Information International Bureau, and commercial buildings of many kinds (for example, high-quality jewelers). If, leaving the boulevards, we take one of the streets continuing the avenue Shukry Kouwatly to the east, we arrive at Sahat al Shoufhada'a ("the square of the Martyrs"), still commonly known as place Marjeh. This square is easily recognized by a curious bronze colonnade wreathed in electric cables. This monument was erected to commemorate the opening of first telegraphic link in the Middle East - the line between Damascus and Medina.

Souk Saroujah, north of the...

by maykal

Souk Saroujah, north of the old city is usually free of tourists, apart from the area around the Al-Haramain Hotel. It is an old quarter and stretches both sides of a busy 'motorway'. There are a couple of museums hidden in here, which I didn't find until my last day, and unfortunately they were shut!
