Aleppo (Syria) Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Aleppo in Syria.
Sturdy walls and gates protect the ancient historic city of Aleppo in Syria.The narrow lanes in the old town, and its many historic buildings, have retained all the character and charm of a mediaeval metropolis. The city has a flourishing economy which is mainly due to its favourable location at the junction of several important trading routes. In 1169 the Umayyade Mosque was re-built at the command of the Zengid monarch, Nureddin, but only its impressive forty five metre high minaret has survived to the present day. The Baits are true architectural gems of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, noble and often palatial-looking buildings that once belonged to the city’s elite classes. Today Aleppo shines out once again in the glory of its six thousand years of history and continues to highlight its unique significance as one of the most important cities in the Orient.

I HAVE MADE IT SAFELY TO LIBYA, COUNTRY #184!

All of the stress of getting the visa and acting as a business consultant is behind me now, and I have REALLY ENJOYED exploring the capital and biggest city of Tripoli. This city really caught me by surprise!

My intention from making this video is to give you a glimpse of the local life, and tell you what it's like to visit Libya as a tourist from my perspective.

There will be more stories to follow from Libya over the coming days. Thanks for watching, and share if you enjoyed :)

Worst Travel Destinations in the World

Get more Tips here!

Tourists are often wary of traveling to certain destinations that maintain a reputation of being “unsafe”. We’ve compiled a list of the 10 worst travel destinations around the world based on these factors.

1. Port au Prince, Haiti
Since the 2010 earthquake, Port au Prince has been falling even further into decline. This city lacks basic healthcare and education systems and is stricken with severe poverty. Locals are purposefully kept far from tourists, making the experience hardly authentic for travelers who visit there.

2. Damascus, Syria
There has been a temporary suspension of commercial flights and closure of roadways. Some threats are very high in Damascus and the surrounding suburbs. While its a historically and culturally rich city, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office advises that Damascus is one of the worst travel destinations in the world right now.

3. Mogadishu, Somalia
Recently named by the US State Department as the most dangerous place on Earth, Mogadishu is not expected to be a popular tourist destination anytime soon. Mogadishu is not only the headquarters for non good people in the Horn of Africa, but new non licit organizations are forming everyday.

4. Pyongyang, North Korea
The only American who has been warmly welcomed into North Korea recently was basketball superstar, Dennis Rodman. Unless you look like him, don’t expect to be able to wander freely around the country. Tourists can only visit Pyongyang under the supervision of accredited tour guides, and the tours themselves are strictly regulated and restricted by the government.

5. Ciudad Juarez, Mexico
Considered one of the capitals of the world for bad people, vacationing in Ciudad Juarez is not recommended. This Mexican city has had lots of issues with the law. The big lords looking to maintain a stronghold of their supplies to the American market often threat innocent people to maintain their border city.

6. Bogotá, Colombia
Bogotá is not the best city at all. Some outlaw groups and other organizations continue to hold civilians, including foreigners, for ransom or as political bargaining chips. If you must travel to Bogotá, do so with extreme caution.

7. Dhaka, Bangladesh
The city’s nearby river is beautiful, but also severely polluted. Dhaka’s political system is highly wrong and proper healthcare and infrastructure systems are lacking in this capital city. Bangladesh does have the potential to be a tourist-worthy country, but government officials must improve humanitarian concerns and cleanliness standards in Dhaka before we would recommend it.

8. Skegness, England
Brits frequent this disappointing town hoping to spend some time at the beach, but traveling to Skegness has become a joke. The town, which appears to be stuck in the past, offers very few attractions for tourists to enjoy and is overpriced. This is one of the worst travel destinations.

9. Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea
Papua New Guinea’s capital city is known for its frequent lawlessness. All the bad issues take place daily. Port Moresby is replete with waste and pollution and offers few attractions for tourists.

10. Moscow, Russia
Moscow experiences extreme weather conditions during most months, making travel extremely unpleasant. Political problem levels are high in Russia’s capital city. Even the police are known to not precisely help tourists. We recommend visiting neighboring St. Petersburg instead.

Which of these cities surprised you the most?

12 Most Sacred Places

12 sacred sites from around the world each one holy to their respective religion like the strange Rat Temple or Kiyomizu Shrine

Subscribe to American Eye

5. Church of the Holy Sepulchre
This is considered to be the most holiest site for christians and is constructed on the site of Jesus’ supposed tomb also in the city of Jerusalem. It was from this location where Christians believe Jesus was buried and then resurrected. The church has been a major site of pilgrimage since it was built in the fourth century. Despite being damaged by fires and earthquakes, it’s been repaired quite a few time and an extremely sacred place of worship. The pilgrims come also to see a holy relic called the stone of unction which is believed to be the spot where Jesus was prepared for burial. Inside, a shrine lays over the entrance to the cave where jesus was believed to be buried that you see in this photo..

4. Lourdes, France
Located on the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains in southwestern France, this city is home to many pilgrimages to people following the Catholic faith. In 1870, It’s here where a peasant girl by the name of Bernadette Soubirous allegedly saw the Virgin Mary at least 28 times. The Basilica Rosary is somewhat small but with impressive architecture and surprisingly does not contain the tomb of Bernadette On the 11th of February over 45,000 pilgrims visited this small city of about 15 thousand people and 6 million tourists from all over the world come here. The apparitions took place in a cave known as Massabielle and Bernadette was only 14 at the time. The Catholic Church acknowledged her visions as legitimate. The ones who do decide to make the journey here, hope to witness miracles and even be cured from illnesses or injuries.

3. Sahasralinga
This pilgrimage site is located about 10 miles from the Sirsi Taluk in the district of Uttara Kannada of the Karnataka state in India. Due to Shalmala river drying it up, it exposed thousands of these rocks carved in the language Sanskrit. Historians claim that these rocks were carved by orders of Sadashiva Raya who was the King of Sirsi during the end of the 17th century. These carvings were to honor the hindu god Shiva who is responsible of the creation, upkeep and will be responsible for the destruction of the world. The sheer quantity of the carvings is simply astounding and offer followers of the Hindu faith a place for their prayers.

2. Varanasi Along the Ganges
Considered to be the most holy site in the Hindu religion, Varanasi lies along the sacred Ganges River in India and is the spiritual capital of India. The river itself is considered to be a personified god Ganga Every morning, people wake up and wash their clothes in this river as well throw their dead relatives here as a sacred but not sanitary practice. Thousands of pilgrims each come here to attend religious ceremonies. Open cremations along banks of this river are a common occurrence that burn non stop and which is believed to grant people eternal salvation. The pollution has gotten out of control and has fecal matter content 3 times the safe level for bathing. Despite this, about 60 thousand people swim and even drink the water here each day, Hindus consider it to be a the most pure of all waters.

1.Kaaba, Mecca
15 million visitors partake in what’s known as one of the 5 pillars of Islam known as the Hajj, or sacred pilgrimage, making it by far the most holy and sacred place in the world. Islam requires each muslim to visit this city who is financially capable at least once in their life and is the largest pilgrimage in the world. This is considered to be the holiest place for muslims and The one point 6 billion followers of this religion face to the direction of Mecca Saudi, Arabia each day to pray. The population of the city can triple in size each year during the hajj. Camps are constructed to shelter the pilgrims. So what’s so special about this black cube? According to tradition it was built by the son of Abraham, Ismail built in year 2000 BC and contains a meteorite. It used to be a pagan house of worship until the prophet Muhammad arrived cleared out the icons they had been used it and made it into the house of god. The grand mosque can house hundreds of thousands of people.

The World's OLDEST CITY (Damascus)

► SUBSCRIBE for daily travel videos:
► INSTAGRAM? Join me:

Syria's capital of Damascus is widely considered as the oldest continuously inhabited city on earth, with evidence of habitation dating back (at least) 11,000 years. For all you math wizards out there, that's about 10,000 B.C.!

This is largely due to the unique positioning of the city -- in the heart of the Middle East, in the center of the world and at the intersection of 3 continents. Damascus was conquered by Alexander the Great in 333 BCE, and since then, it's been taken over by dozens of empires such as Roman, Arab and Ottoman.

I have spent the first few days of my trip in Syria in this amazing city, and I'm loving it so much that I wanted to dedicate an entire video to show you what it's like to visit.

One thing that I didn't mention much in the video is about how SAFE it is in Damascus. I can't speak yet for the rest of Syria, but as far as this city goes (in this current day), I feel extremely safe just like I do in any other big city around the world.

Why I Don't Like This Country ????????

► SUBSCRIBE for daily travel videos:

While I constantly try to find the positives in every place I visit, there are few places that I just simply didn't enjoy.

The country of Brunei is one of them.

I went to Brunei back in 2014, three years before I made videos, but my negative experiences in the country have stuck in my mind ever since. That, combined with its absurd human rights laws such as stoning to death LGBT members, I was pushed to make this video.

Have you ever visited any countries that you didn't enjoy? Please share below, I'm curious to know.

Top 13 Middle East Travel Destinations

Top 13 Middle East Travel Destinations according to Lonely Planet

13. Luxor, Egypt
12. Beirut, Lebanon
11. Istanbul, Turkey

10. Palmyra, Syria
Palmyra is known as Tadmor to the Syrians. Both mean the same thing - date palm. The name comes from the lush oasis adjacent to the city which is home to some million date palms. It is the only oasis in Syria and perhaps the only truly tourist town. Palmyra sits on the standard tourist trek around Syria and should be considered in this light.

9. Jerash, Jordan
Jerash, a city in northern Jordan, is famous for its Roman ruins. The archaeological site is popular for tourists, second only to Petra.
Located some 48 km north of the capital Amman, Jerash is known for the ruins of the Greco-Roman city of Gerasa, also referred to as Antioch on the Golden River.

8. Baalbek, Lebanon
Baalbek is one of the most spectacular archaeological sites in Lebanon. Baalbeck or 'Heliopolis' as it was known is the site of great ancient temples built by the Phoenicians, the Romans, and other civilisations that have conquered the region and enjoyed the fertile soil of the Bekaa Valley. Some of the most celebrated temples are the ones of Bacchus, the Greek god of wine, and Jupiter, the Roman god of light, of the sky and weather.

7. Cappadocia, Turkey
Cappadocia is an area in Central Anatolia in Turkey best known for its unique moon-like landscape, underground cities, cave churches and houses carved in the rocks. The Cappadocian Region located in the center of the Anatolian Region of Turkey, with its valley, canyon, hills and unusual rock formation created as a result of the eroding rains and winds of thousands of years.

6. Wadi Rum, Jordan
Wadi Rum is a spectacularly scenic desert valley in southern Jordan. This area of Jordan is quite isolated and largely inhospitable to settled life. The only permanent inhabitants are several thousand Bedouin nomads and villagers. There is no real infrastructure, leaving the area quite unspoilt.

5. Cruising the Nile, Egypt
Perhaps the most popular activity in Luxor and Aswan is to do the Nile Cruise on a ship from Aswan to Luxor. It enables you to stop at each location along the Nile where you can see all the famous ancient monuments as well as experience being in the Nile River inside a five-star hotel boat.

4. Dome of the Rock, Israel
Dome of the Rock located in the middle of the sanctuary opposite of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, is probably the most known landmark of Jerusalem with its golden dome and octagonal blue walls that are adorned with Arabic calligraphy of Koranic verses. The interior of both the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa mosque are closed to non-Muslims, however, the plaza that they are situated in is open to the public.

3. Old City of Damascus, Syria
Established between 10,000 to 8,000BC, Damascus is credited with being the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world. The old-walled city, in particular, feels very ancient and largely consists of a maze of narrow alleys, punctuated by enigmatic doors that lead into pleasing, verdant courtyards and blank-faced houses.

2. Pyramids of Giza, Egypt
Giza is best known for the world-famous Pyramids of Giza, situated high on the desert plateau immediately to the west of the urban district. One of the premier attractions of Egypt, if not the world, the Pyramids of Giza represent the archetypal pyramid structures of ancient Egyptian civilisation and - together with the Sphinx at the base of the Giza plateau - are the iconic image of Egypt.

1. Petra, Jordan
Petra was the impressive capital of the Nabataean kingdom from around the 6th century BC. The kingdom was absorbed into the Roman Empire in AD 106 and the Romans continued to expand the city. An important center for trade and commerce, Petra continued to flourish until a catastrophic earthquake destroyed buildings and crippled vital water management systems around AD 663. After Saladin's conquest of the Middle East in 1189, Petra was abandoned and the memory of it was lost to the West.

SYRIA | What's It Like to be a Tourist in Damascus in 2019?

My trip to Syria was one of the most eye-opening journeys I've ever made. It was tough to reconcile my awareness of the recent tragic conflict in the country, with the beauty and positivity I experienced there... But certainly, the people of Damascus MADE my visit. Thank you to everyone who welcomed me there with open arms.

Please note: this vlog documents my personal trip to Syria, as a tourist. It is not necessarily a travel recommendation, nor a commentary on the political climate, nor an attempt to show the ordinary life of Syrian citizens.

THE WAIT IS OVER AND I'M BEYOND EXCITED TO TELL YOU ABOUT THE LAST 2 WEEKS OF MY LIFE IN SYRIA - COUNTRY #183!

It was honestly the most inspiring and life-changing trip I've taken so far. I am so overwhelmed by the amazing people who welcomed me here -- you won't believe the stories that I'm about to share with you.

Ever since war began in Syria 2011, the media has ripped this country into pieces (not surprisingly) -- so I am going to do my best to show you the positive sides about Syrian people, culture, food and general life -- because trust me, there are A LOT of positives that are yet to be exposed to the outside world.

Can you guys sense how excited I am as I type this right now? It's unbelievable what I am feeling right now.

This first video is somewhat of an overview of everything I did in Syria. You can consider it as a 'teaser' for what's to come. I will be uploading daily videos as usual, but please note they will be delayed 14 days as I decided not to post live for safety reasons and so I could fully enjoy the trip without feeling pressure to upload.

Syria Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Syria.
Syria is an ancient country of culture located between the Mediterranean and the desert. Its ancient desert metropolises, old villages, impenetrable fortresses and biblical harbour towns have witnessed the rich and fascinating history of bygone times.Damascus is the capital of Syria and symbol of culture in the Near East and located a hundred kilometres from the Mediterranean coast. The Kalaa Citadel is situated on the periphery of the old town that was once surrounded by huge walls and it was from there that Saladin fended off the attacks of the Crusaders. The Khan As´Ad Pasha is often referred to as being the most beautiful caravansary in the Near East. Its inner courtyard is covered by eight mighty and partly painted cupolas each of which is supported by four pillars. Set amid the desert savannah of Syria are the proud remains of a unique and mysterious metropolis, Palmyra, a legendary ancient city that was built due to the existence of the Tadmur Oasis. The shortest and fastest route from the Mediterranean to Mesopotamia and Persia travels directly past the Tadmur Oasis thus it was only a question of time until an important trading post was founded there. Around a quarter of a million Bedouins live in Syria’s desert areas. They are nomads who speak Arabic and belong to the Muslim faith and their income is derived from sheep, goats and camels which produce both milk and meat. They travel the desert accompanied by their animals. Further north on the edge of the fertile Al Ghab Ditch is the ancient metropolis of Apameia, one of the most beautiful cities in the Near East. Apart from Bosra and Palmyra this huge city of ruins is one of the most important Hellenist regions in Syria. Syria is the Pearl Of The East. With deserts, wadis and mountains, castles and crusader fortresses, Roman ruins, palaces and mosques. A legendary country between both past and future whose cultural treasures still survive today.
