Syria Travel BlogTravel guides, itineraries, abandoned places, street art and off-the-beaten-path places in Syria
Hello and welcome to our Syria travel blog. You will find all our Syria blog posts in this section of our website.
Maybe you found our Syria travel blog because you are dreaming of a trip to Syria or perhaps you are just curious. Hopefully, the latter, because Syria isn’t currently a safe tourist destination. Whatever the reason, we hope we can provide some inspiration for Syria.
Lucky Mark got to visit Syria several years ago, pre-conflict. We hope that one day, we’ll have the opportunity to travel there together. In the meantime, Syria forms part of our ‘Back in the Day’ series of posts.
