    Riding a Bedouin horse.

    Just don’t do it, except if you’re really good at horse riding. The Bedouin’s will tell you that their horses are calm, easy going and friendly, in order to persuade you pay for a horse ride. Don’t believe them, this is just another Palmyrian plot; the horses are trained to obey only their masters, and it is very difficult for any other person to control them.

    You will find them in front of the main archaeological sights.. friendly men offering camel rides... prices are not too high but...
    1) camels stink
    2) they are no fun

    Unique Suggestions: wash ur clothes right after the ride, or you'll never get rid of the smell

    Fun Alternatives: the alternative is turning down the camel ride. I pretended to be allergic to hairy animals... it kinda worked
