    Kassab Shopping

    A roadside shop with herbs, honey and oil on sale.As my husband is a firm believer in the curative properties of honey, he insisted on stopping when we were passing a roadside shop with shelves of oil and honey on display. He bargained for the honey but the old man was reluctant to reduce his price. Mountain honey and zattar [dried...

    Kassab Restaurants

    This restaurant is built out onto Balloran Lake. It seems very popular, and justifiably so. The food is excellent. You order meat by weight, so we had a kilo between 4 of us. This was mixture of grilled chicken, lamb and kofta/kababs. We had astarter of french fies, hummous and toumiya [garlic in thick yoghurt/labna] and pickles. All delicious. I...

    Kassab Things to Do

    We stopped for lunch by the lake formed by the Balloran Dam. This dam was constructed in the 1950s to conserve the water from the hills. It ia a large expanse of water and very peaceful. We were there on a Friday and there were many people, some eating at the Tahon Restaurant, others cooking their own food beside the road or in the forest.

  • from Latakia to Al Haffa

    Qal`at Sahyun Transportation

    Microbuses leave from Lattakia to Al Haffa regularly, Al Haffa being the village on the way to Qala'at Salah Ed-Din. Taking a taxi or a shared private microbus is also possible but I do not know the price. It is obviously negotiable. The road is crowded with vehicles of every sort since the area is an agricultural one and the road is narrow and...

    Qal`at Sahyun Transportation

    From Al Haffa to the Castle my friend and I took a motorbike taxi. This is absolutely unrecommended! The road from Al Haffa to the Castle is narrow and winding and downright perilous. At one point is passes over a bridge without railings, with cars and other vehicles occasionally coming the opposite way. To make matters worse, being the lightest of...

    Despite unfortunate railings which mask the entrance, and the weeds which are already beginning to cover the stones that excavations revealed, only a few years ago, the building remains impressive. The site is completely flat, so that the cavea is entirely supported on a system of vaulting, each arch supporting a row of seats.Not far from the...

    Jablah Things to Do

    Jableh is a large seaside town, virtually in the middle of the Syrian coast. Although it was an ancient port there are no more ships to be seen at Jableh, apart from a few fishing vessels. However, the town does have several attractions like its various interesting buildings, which justify putting Jableh on the list of places worth visiting.Of all...
