Syria, officially known as the Syrian Arab Republic, is a country in Western Asia, bordering Lebanon and the Mediterranean Sea to the west, Turkey to the north, Iraq to the east, Jordan to the south, and Israel to the southwest.
The annual mean temperatures range from 7 °C (45 °F) in January to 27 °C (81 °F) in August. Because the high ridges of the Jabal an Nusayriyah catch most of the rains from the Mediterranean, the Al Ghab depression, located east of these mountains, is in a relatively arid zone with warm, dry winds and scanty rainfall.

Once in Syria, you cannot miss the souks - the busy marketplaces and bazaars that sell you everything from food to souvenirs to silk to handicrafts to camel humps and even Syrian dreams. Souks don't necessarily mean street bazaars - there are some glitzy shopping malls too. The old city of Damascus is a shopper's paradise, spread across narrow lanes and main roads. The Aleppo souk stretches for 20 miles and you might require at least two days to cover all the little shops and stalls on this stretch.
