  1. الاوضاع في الدول العربية غير مطمأنة خصوصا هذه الايام بعد احداث الانقلابات واتمنى ما تتعرضين كما تعرضت العوائل الكويتية في مصر
    كلمي السفارة للتأكد من الوضع

  2. If you’re into history..art..religion

    Visit zainub (as) daughter of Imam Ali (as).. Sister of Imam Hussain (as)..

    Also visit the old palace where Imam Ali ibn al Hussain (as) gave his speech in the court.

  3. If you like good food you should go to Alipo…

  4. just walk around 7amidiyah market .. visit the omawi mosque .. nar-ing restaurant that opened up in kuwait is shit compared to the one in damascus .. also try the syrian restaurant in the four seasons .. theres a place called boulevard where all the syrian tv stars hang out at .. also i highly recommend staying in the four seasons and ask the concierge about the art galleries there

  5. انا من عشاق مدينة دمشق ..مدينة مملوءة بعبق التاريخ والفن والكثير .. اولا لتعيشي الجو بدمشق يجب ان تسكني في احد البيوت الدمشقية بالمدينة القديمة هذا متوفر بالكثير من البيوت التي تم تحويلها الى فنادق جميلة وراقية اذكر منها فندق الباشا ،فندق الشاهبندر ،بيت المملوكة وغيرها
    الاماكن التي يجب زيارتها : الجامع الاموي
    سوق الحميدية
    سوق البزورية
    التكية السليمانية
    قصر العظم
    لا تنسي تذوق بوظة بكداش
    وشرب القهوة والشاي بمقهى النوفرة
    وتذوق الاكل الشامي بمطعم نارنج
    والاستمتاع بجلسة جميلة مع اطايب الاكل ببيت جبري
    وهناك بعض المعارض الفنية تقام ب طاحونة ارت هاوس

  6. A recommended walk (1 – 2 hours) is take midhat basha street from the begining to the straight street to the end. You’ll find ‘maktab anbar’ and ‘ alatham house/[alace’ and old madrasah. All to the left and right of that looong street. most of it is pedestrian only during high hours. The best shop is “Anat” which has the best quality artisan with a modern twist. It is the idea of a German lady with the artisan done in the refugees camps. It is wonderful.

  7. On that street also is: Villa Moda (enjoy the interiors) and the ‘Khan’ done also by Majed Al-Subah. Sip a cup of coffee at the Khan caffee.
