planning trip turkey-syria-jordan-egypt-sudan...SA
Thanks Paul for the update.
I really need the good news.
I'm planning trip Belgium-Turkey-Syria-Jordan-Egypt-Sudan and further to SA.
Because the Visamar ferry (venice-alex) doens't go untill oktober 2011 I'm looking for a alternative route to Egypt.
Do you think it is possible with the borders Turkey-Syria and Syria-Jordan.
I'm starting end august 2011 in Belgium and will be at Syria-border about end september.
1.Did you feel safe in Syria, how are the people to travellers??
2.Do you think it is still possible for travelling into Syria??
3.Where did you get the visa for Syria??
4.I do have a carnett, so more easy at the borders!!
5.Do I get discussion in Sudan with Syrian visa in passport??
Hope that you have some answers.
Enjoy your travells.

Stayed in Damascus on Friday no problems and everyone very helpfull. On costs entered twice without carnet around 4000syp each time, insurance 1000yp and a couple of 100s for stamps. Helpers try to sneak thru a couple of humdred for themselves but first time thru it was worth it just stay with them as they go to the desks. Each time you leave you also have to pay 500syp but thats it. Not a suggested holiday destination but worth transiting to get to Jordan, riding at Wadi Rum area is fantastic.
