Best Places to See in Syria
Syria is not exactly a tourist spot now especially for those who are not Muslims. Well, for one, the organizers of ISIS destroyed the reputation of Syria and the whole country is suffering because of these terrorists. This is one of the reasons why the tourism of Syria is very slow except for Islam believers. Nonetheless, if ever you find the bravado to explore the ancient cities in Syria, you should definitely do so. Here is a Syria travel guide with at least fifteen of the must see destinations in the country.
15. Water Wheels of Hama
The Water Wheels of Hama are also called the Norias of Hama. It is one of the 100 Wonders in Syria and a frequently visited tourist attraction in Syria. The origin of these norias cannot be ascertained as to when it was really constructed but a painting was found which dated back to 469 AD and the water wheels were drawn there. So, it most probably existed even before the 5th century. Today, there are seventeen water wheels left but they are not active anymore.
