Locals claim that the Prophet Muhammad refused to enter Damascus on his journey to Mecca--he wished to enter Paradise only once in his lifetime.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Damascus: Maaloula (Mar Sarkis, Deir Mar Takla, &more). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Al Azem Palace (Palace of As'ad, Pasha al-'Azm), take in the spiritual surroundings of Damascus Umayyad Mosque, admire the landmark architecture of Khan Asaad Basha, and contemplate the long history of Damascus Center.

To find more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Damascus road trip website.

Vancouver, Canada to Damascus is an approximately 31- hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 10 hours traveling from Vancouver to Damascus. Traveling from Vancouver in April, you will find days in Damascus are warmer (30°C), and nights are about the same (10°C). Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
