Middle East - Syria (PDF Chapter)

$4.95 USD

This is the Syria chapter from Lonely Planet’s Middle East guidebook.

At the time of writing, Syria is one of the most dangerous places on the planet. To put it simply, you can’t go. And if you can, you shouldn’t. We have not, of course, visited Syria to update our coverage for this edition. For that reason, this chapter contains no information or advice for travellers to the country. Instead, we have shifted our focus to exploring what daily life is like for those still inside the country.
