Hi All,

I'm going to visit Syria on New Year's days (I think from December 29th for a week or two). I can't afford spend a lot of money :) Could anybody to give me advice what cheap hotel (hostel, hut) can I find there?
What activities can I meet there on New Year's days (I mean recreational activities). What place, cities, ruins I have to visit?

Syria isn't expensive. My must sees - Great Mosque in Damascus, Palmyra and Kerak des Chevaliers.

dear Alex,

the hotels in Syria are not cheap but the cheapest.
my friend shared a room with two Americans in Spring flower for 185 syrian pounds 1$ equals 54 syrian pound(today rate).
The two major cities in Syria Damscus(the capital)and Aleppo(my city).
to give you kind of plan to visit Syria,please tell me how many days you wanna stay and where you gonna start from(arrival point-flight or by bus from Turkey)

have a nice trip
