Trip Report Photos: Jordan, Syria and Lebanon

Jump to last reply

I just returned from a visit to Jordan, Syria and Lebanon.

I visited the following places:

Jordan: Amman and Petra

Syria: Damascus, Palmyra, Krak des Chevaliers, Aleppo, Dead Cities, Apamea and Hama

Lebanon: Beirut, Byblos, Baalbek and Anjar

Its surprisingly easy and inexpensive to travel around these countries, which I did by public transport -- mostly buses, but also minibuses (although I did have to hire a taxi to take me to Krak des Chevaliers). While I saw what I consider to be many of the highlights, there's much to see in the Levant and I would like to return in the near future to further explore.

I also found it very safe (contrary to some of what I was told before I departed), even in the Hezbollah-controlled areas of Lebanon, where I traveled by public transport to visit Baalbek (in my view, Lebanon's most important historic site).

I would be happy to answer any questions.

Michael
