Bear in mind travel cheques are not accepted in Afrin and surrounding ,
and also If i remember well there is NO exchange offices around there.and Locals will hardly or do not accept foreign currency, be prepped to use local currency when purchasing something.
Bear in mind that in winter it is cold,and in summer it is hot.
so you will need a winter jacket etc.
In summer you can wear short ans T-shirts or copy the locals and wear galabeya
Bring comfortable flat shoes ,and I suggest to avoid white tennis shoes ,Specially in the winter time.
and on Summer advisable to put on men's sandals since the weather is too hot.
