Damascus (known as ash-Sham in Syria) is commonly referred to as the "City of Jasmine". It is one of the world's oldest inhabited cities, surrounded by rolling eastern foothills, and it's a major cultural and religious center. The city is filled with temple ruins and stone columns, making expats feel as if they are taking a walk into the past. Our members will be able to answer all of the questions you have, ranging from, "fo I have to pay a departure tax when entering and leaving the country?" to "what restaurants serve the best traditional food?". The population of Damascus is predominantly Sunni Muslim, but unlike what's often thought, the country's attitude is viewed as relatively progressive, particularly towards women. By becoming a member of our community, you will access a worldwide network of experienced expats, making your life-changing transition much easier and simpler.
